Already got a shingles vaccination? If you didn't get the new version, please do so, as it's way more effective. Since I got a new shingles vaccination myself this week, I thought you’d like to know what I learned, especially those of you who might be of a certain age.
This really isn’t an ad, but check this out. After spending way too much money on all sorts of frustrating toothbrushes, I wanted to find one that actually worked for me, and I may have found it.

Under our category of new experiences, Lynn and I went to our first "rock concert" to see Jacob Sartorius -- son of our daughter Linda's friend Pat -- perform. About 800 young women and girls screamed with unbound enthusiasm throughout the performance.
After hearing about a couple of people’s pets passing away, I feel it’s important to remember that when a pet dies, it’s a lot like, and often exactly like, losing a member of the family.

Have you made a New Year's Resolution to exercise? If so, please consider Tai Chi. It's both safe for your joints and you can do it without using any equipment (except yourself, of course). Do it indoors or out, from anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour. Up to you!
