COVER Bill Nikolai Flybrarian
It would seem there are two main types of people: those who view retirement as a well-earned rest for a life well-worked, where cranking the handle on the recliner is the apex of adventure they desire; and those who continue to challenge themselves, mind and body, seeking to test limits and extend boundaries.
Bill Nikolai, mild-mannered librarian by day (more on that later), is the proto-typical limit tester and boundary extender.

Message from a Reader
I thoroughly enjoyed this latest publication. I have kept quite a few of the articles, for myself as well as to share with others. My Danish sister-in-law, who lives in Edmonton, will love the “Finding Hyggee In Denmark” story, by James Ellsworth. I recently gave her a book on Hygge so this is timely. The Legacy Giving article by Amber Adams clearly talks about the types and timing of charitable donations. And Pat Nicol always connects - sharing her thoughts on living joyously.
Still more: Sharing Family Stories, by Diane Salter (I’ll be sharing this with my Mom, brothers and their wives) and I’m planning to buy Mike McCardell’s book: “None of This Was Planned”, as talked about in the article Lauren P. MacLellan contributed. And all of the other articles were meaningful too! The Angel For A Day, by Kate Robertson, is so very inspiring and encouraging - after reading what Diane Falk has done in the medical profession to help patients and their families.
So really, this entire magazine is full of valuable information about valuable people. I’m just feeling bad now because I’m not listing the rest of the terrific articles...but the good news is they are all online to read!
Thank you for presenting such quality contributions and feel-good reading.

BLOG The Powerful Purchasing Influence of 55+ Women
If you haven’t taken time lately to study who is buying your product or service, you may be surprised to discover that one of the most prominent drivers in today’s economy is women over the age of 55. If 55+ women are not on your marketing radar, now is the time to revise your strategy. This is an opportunity too big to miss. Companies that fail to acknowledge the purchasing power of this demographic will find their market share eroded by those companies that make an effort to understand and meet the needs of this influential customer.
