Our Friday Song of the Week – Woodstock – Everyday People

After seeing Santana in Charlotte my wife and I were inspired to have a Woodstock party. Not taking my duties lately, I found the Woodstock lineup and all the songs that were performed. I took it upon myself to try to learn at least one or two songs from each artist at Woodstock in the order of appearance. Some artists or songs were so obscure that I had to skip them or I simply did not know the songs. For some artists I didn’t care for the songs that they did at Woodstock so I did another one of their songs that they made famous after Woodstock. I figured it was only appropriate to rehearse in my garage and to tape the rehearsal as opposed to going into my more polished studio and hooking up everything to my sound system on my computer. So what you’re seeking and hearing is my replication of our version of Woodstock complete with the garage band feel, me in jeans and a T-shirt and unshaven. Please pardon the surroundings, but I thought it would add some authenticity, but I hope you enjoy the songs. So here’s one by Sly called Everyday People

Senior Dating – Charlotte Today – 02/19/20

That said, the “OK Boomers” have given their kids one more thing to be infuriated about when mom or dad decide to divorce, start dating and horrors even have sex in their 50’s and 60’s! Living longer has caused many of these boomers to re-evaluate. They have raised their kids and now it’s their turn seems to be the prevailing attitude. Though “their” does not necessarily entail the spouse who was with them on the journey so far. And let’s face it, women outlive men so there are a lot of older woman alone and senior isolation is a real and dangerous thing. We explore all of the nuances of senior dating on Charlotte Today.

The Hardships and Joys of Grandparents Raising Grandkids

There are nearly three million grandparents raising eight million grandchildren in the U.S. In North Carolina, nearly 200,000 children live with nearly 100,000 grandparents. That has a cost in terms of time, money and health.The opioid crisis has taken the brunt of the blame as many addicted parents simply can’t, won’t or are prohibited from raising their kids. However, military deployments, sudden parent deaths, and incarceration can all contribute. The implications are many. When a grandparent steps in, they are laser-focused on their new responsibilities and often neglect their own health. Many of these grandparents are already living below the poverty level and grandparents with means are often spending down their retirement savings or staying in the workforce longer to be able to raise a child and put them through school. Having to generate income into your seventies is a scary proposition and having to rely on social security as your sole income after will create hardship. How can grandparents take control and achieve balance? We explore this topic of grandparents raising grandkids on the Frankie Boyer Show. More in my Sixty and Me article too.
