Work

You may find that being over fifty does not help your employment prospects or finances. Sensible and legal ideas for generating or saving money are welcome.

If you are interested in setting up a new business and want to share the work in starting it up we may be able to help directly with some aspects of this – get in touch if this is the case.

Saving the planet

June 30, 2008

There does seem to be a real problem building up for our children and childrens’s children. There also seems to be a lot of confusion and even misinformation regarding solutions or even whether there is a real problem.

We would like comment from informed people or well thought through ideas for saving the planet. Our longer term idea would be to set up one or more communities to fund development of innovations which can help the planet with members of the community funding the developments and sharing in profits – if the ideas are profitable. We would also like to set up pressure groups to combat misinformation and calmly review new ideas to see if they are likely either to cause more problems than they solve. Both governments and business seem particularly inept in thinking things through for the long term (government can only think up to the next election and most management is only concerned with staying on the management gravey train).

Please get in touch if you you have ideas on how the ideas can be taken forward ?


Books

June 30, 2008

We would like this section to be used a bit like a book club with favourite books being presented (and why they are favouite) – especially ones people think have been ignored for whatever reason.

If you want our help in setting up a bookclub online or otherwise please contact us (we will charge for the administration).

Female

June 30, 2008

Use this post to explore being female and over fifty.

Health, wellbeing and fun are probably your main considerations.

As far as health is concerned you may want to comment on healthy eating options and possibly on  forms of exercise which work for you.

Do supermarkets promote healthy eating habits ?


Male

June 30, 2008

Use this post to explore being male and over fifty.

Probably the main concern is to maintain your health and wellbeing.

Some people may find that a combination of stress, too much sugar and fat in their diet and lack of excercise has affected their health.

We are interested in hearing from people who have found a balance in their eating and exercise regimes and work/life balance.

Have you ever thought of running your own business ? You may want to post here to share your experiences with other people or find other people to cooperate in new business ventures ?

Is it easy to set up a succesful new business in the UK ?
