Relationship advice for those over fifty

heart-leave-featuredPeople fifty and over should have enough experience when to tell if the relationship needs to be over. Sadly, this isn't always the case. The idea may perambulate the conscious brain waves, but it can be hard to make a decision, and sometimes you need to have someone confirm that your thoughts on this matter aren't as far-fetched as you may wish they were.

Kathryn Alice's book Releasing a Person was first a workshop and then a bestselling CD that she created to help those suffering with the deepest attachment we face: that to another person. It has produced MIRACLES for those have used it.

Kathryn, author of the bestseller LOVE WILL FIND YOU, is the U.S.'s foremost expert on soulmates and spiritual dating. She appears in the 2012 Feature Film Secrets of Love. Her work has been featured in Psychology Today, USA Today, The New York Times, Associated Press, Body+Soul and on Montel, NBC and The Aware Show. Kathryn directed Agape's Crisis Support Team for 6 years & teaches in the U.S., Australia and South Africa. She has been married for over a decade to her own soulmate, and they have 4 boys.

She certainly seems to be a credible source. Mind you, here at 50alone, it's felt we could have dished out some pretty good advice, by telling you not to get involved in the first place. Still, it's understood that going it alone is a big lifestyle choice and an even bigger decision.

Watch the video below as Kathryn explains some of her thoughts on this.

This book will help you:

  • Relieve the pain of a break-up or divorce
  • Heal from heartbreak
  • Dissolve a pesky attachment that is putting your life on hold
  • Possibly work it out with the person you're releasing (Kathryn calls this "The Phenomenon" in the book)
  • Free yourself for the REAL love that awaits you beyond tie
  • Get beyond a "crazy love" situation that is making you miserable

alice-re-ebookThe book, Releasing a Person is free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion. It is very long in length, but Kathryn Alice's work has helped tens of thousands go beyond heartbreak to find the love of their lives. Kathryn has worked with people from their teens up into their 80's, who have overcome love disappointment, dissolved their attachment and then found true love.

If you happen to miss this promotion; not to worry. We can setup a forum on this site to discuss relationships.

New Outlook for those over fifty

outlook-featuredThere is a new email service offered from Microsoft called Outlook.com. I think it especially handy for anyone over fifty, because it pulls everything you need into one place. I've had my account for a while, and I like how it works on an iPad as well as a desktop. Haven't see too many people using it yet. I wonder why it isn't catching on.

It has a number of great features, including integration with SkyDrive so you can view, edit and share Microsoft Office files. That can come in real handy if you're on the road. It comes with 7 GB of free storage space: That's enough for approximately 20,000 Office documents or 7,000 photos.

Another feature I like, is it can pull in all of your contacts from LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, and you can enable a chat right in the program if you want to. Open an email from a contact, and instantly view their latest update and profile picture in the right pane. When you connect Facebook or Twitter to Outlook.com, you'll be able to see your friends' status updates and Tweets right from your inbox.

In the video below, the young man compares Outlook to Gmail. The video is six months old; shortly after Outlook was launched.

You can also upgrade from Hotmail, or Gmail or just setup an account and play around with it for a few days to see how you like it.

From His Window: A song/video about Alzheimer’s

dad-featuredIf you're over fifty there is a good chance you know someone who has/had Alzheimer’s. My father had it, and although some of the things he came up with were kind of funny; they were funny, but sad at the same time.  He got to the point where he didn't recognize anyone, not even my mother.

There are a few posts relating to Alzheimer’s on this site. Most of them are tagged, so if you would like to review them the tagged posts on Alzheimer’s can be found here.

One of my friends had posted a YouTube Video titled From His Window - (song about Alzheimer's disease). I wanted to share it with you.

Over fifty and still doing homework

homework-featuredPeople fifty and over can help their grand-kids with homework. Of course it's possible in this day and age that your grandchildren may not live close enough to drop by for help. But this doesn't mean that you still can't help.

Most of you who have family that lives farther away than you care for already know about Skype. You can call computer to computer for free and talk as long as you want to. You can do video calls, so you can actually see the grand-kids as you talk to them. But, there is also a program that works with Skype, IDroo - Online educational multiuser whiteboard. It's FREE for non-commercial use, which means you can use it to help your grand-kids do their math homework. Yes, even math.

Watch the video below to see how it can be used.

You can see what a great tool it could be for you and your grand-kids to use. And it's a way to be more involved in their lives, especially if they live too far away to visit often.
