Hye, kiddo! I finally got added to your e-mail list, so think I can now

might not be good news for you!). And to think I just turned 50 a few

Time for coffee these days?

That is the title of an article in the current issue of AARP Bulletin.
sub-title notes that, "People Live Long--But Reveals Many Gaps in
Care System." AARP is announcing a comprehensive look at the
health system. AARP notes that the report consolidates an array of
information from the federal government, private polling companies,
other research organizations. It's the second in a series of AARP
examining the status and progress of older Americans in areas such as

Other indicators re adequate health and long-term care insurance
access to quality health care; protection against financially
health costs; and sufficient information for making sound health
I particularly like that last item!
