Thank you for adopting!!

Who is our mod? The Mod list says "earlyretirement" but I don't think I have ever seen him/her in the forums.

I think she just became our mod a few weeks ago. I've seen her posting here a few times. She may be waiting to get a real feel for the place before diving in whole hog. She also posts on the San Diego forum (I'm a regular over there even if I don't post much).

Default A correction on the gender of our moderator

Sorry, but checking the public profile of our new moderator yields the information that he is a male.

He is a brand new mod who lives in San Diego and he moderates the San Diego forum too. Pretty smart cookie and I think he's going to be good so we'd better watch out!

".....Sitting on the side of the road waiting to catch speeding drivers, a
Massachusetts state trooper sees a car puttering along at 24 mph. He thinks to
himself, "This driver is as dangerous as a speeder!" So he turns on his lights
and pulls the driver over.

Approaching the car, he notices that there are five elderly ladies—two in the
front seat and three in the back, wide-eyed and white as ghosts.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him, "Officer, I don't understand. I was
going the exact speed limit. What seems to be the problem?"

The trooper trying to contain a chuckle, explains to her that 24 was the route
number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked
the officer for pointing out her error.

"But before you go, Ma'am, I have to ask, is everyone in this car OK? These
women seem awfully shaken."

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 108."

From today's Aging Care newsletter online, a few mind-blowing statements

"An estimated 2.8 million boomers [turned] 65 in 2012 and faced the daunting task of enrolling in Medicare for the first time. This puts pressure on family caregivers and friends. Consider these facts from the National Alliance for Caregivers:

- 43 million Americans provide unpaid care to family members or friends age 50 and older.
- 64% of these caregivers also manage these friends' or family members' finances.
- 26 million of these caregivers are full-time workers; that's 16% of the American workforce."
