Push Aside Outdated Impressions You May Have of this Culturally Astonishing, Breathtakingly Beautiful Country. It’s a Fascinating Destination.

By Sandra Colony for the NABBW Ethiopia: Chances are you haven’t been there – but you might change your mind when you learn more about this frequently misunderstood nation, one that can trace its roots to the 2nd millennium. Located on the horn of Africa, Ethiopia is a country that many baby boomers associate with famine and Civil War. Believe me; things have changed dramatically since those times. Today, it is a welcoming, prosperous and safe nation with archeological wonders that rival Angkor Wat and Petra; indigenous tribes still living the way they have for centuries, and ancient holy... Read More

My Date with Danger: A Cautionary, True-life Tale of Date Rape

January 30th, 2015

by Mel Currier for the NABBW When I was seventeen, I moved to New York City to attend secretarial school and lived at The Barbizon Hotel for Women. Men weren’t allowed past the lobby, so that provided some security and sanity for my parents. But what happened outside the walls of The Barbizon was another story.

By Becky Feola NABBW’s Associate for Assisted Living and Caregiving   The first week in January is always full of surprises. More often than usual, my office phone rings with calls from family members who spent time visiting with their aging loved one and now are feeling remorse about not living closer or being able to devote more time to their senior.

Many of these situations are warranted, but other times, I see caregivers who are close to driving themselves... Read More

Going Local on Maui

January 15th, 2015

By Linda Ballou NABBW’s Adventure Travel Associate     Would you like to spend a week in Hawaii without having to cash in your 401K? Resorts with high-end amenities are lovely to stay in, but, for many, too costly to call home for a week. Air B&B offers rooms for rent from local hosts at very reasonable prices all over the world. I chose the Bicycle Inn in Paia, a walkable little town with several good eateries and fun shops close to the Kahului Airport on Maui. My digs were the master bed with a private bath in a three bedroom house with all the comforts of home. Two fantastic... Read More
