  • The Upside of Downsizing

    26 APR 2024 · Downsizing can be both depressing and liberating. If you have moved recently or plan to, or added new people or possessions to your home, you know that “stuff” can sometimes be overwhelming.   Accumulated objects often become a burden, and the resistance to getting rid of them can begin to limit your life choices. It is emotionally difficult to part with things that hold memories, yet the upside of downsizing can be liberating. Our guest today, Cathy Rice, helps people with the emotionally difficult decisions to remove, sell or store “stuff” we no longer need or use.

  • Raging Grannies Bring Humor to Protest

    12 APR 2024 · Groups of older women have been raging – nonviolently – for peace, justice, and progressive causes in general for years. They are called the Raging Grannies and have 60 chapters in the US. Dressing in aprons, shawls, and outrageous hats, the Grannies riff on the stereotype of the “sweet little old lady” in order to deliver their strong opinions and satirical song lyrics. They rage at demonstrations, city halls, state legislatures and wherever they can sing their protest song lyrics. The Raging Grannies provide a positive example of channeling rage and despair. Our guest today is Raging Grannie Vicki Rider.
