What Gets Better As We Age?

Aging brings a new awareness of limitations. Physical and health-related issues are part of the reality of living. Just a few years ago, things we could do without much strain are more difficult. We must work harder to remain fit and energetic.

At the same time, several aspects actually improve. In meaningful ways, our life can become richer and easier as we turn each page of the calendar. LIfe's experiences help us in very important ways.

As we move through the last few days of the first month of a new year, let's look at some of the things that tend to get better as we age:

1. We are less concerned with comparing ourselves to others. By now, we know ourselves well enough to stop constantly comparing ourselves to others. We know there are people who are better looking than us, have more money or fame than we do, are taller, or thinner, more athletic or smarter and there is nothing we can do to change those differences. Importantly, we care less about any of that as measures of o…

Friendship and Retirement: Not a Simple Combination

Maybe it was because I worked for myself for so many years. Maybe it was because I tried working for big corporations and found I didn't play well in a big sandbox. Maybe it is just part of my personality. Whatever the reason, I never had very many close friends. 

My business as a consultant required lots of acquaintances: clients, industry contacts, friendly competitors, and suppliers. But, those were not the type of relationships that led to enduring friendship. Because I was on the road for many days each year, I never developed many close friendships on a social level at home, either. My wife will admit she wasn't much better.

Unfortunately, I carried that situation into retirement. If Betty and I wanted to do something with another couple, we would scramble to think of who to invite. Usually, that meant we would involve family, or do things as just the two of us.

One unexpected benefit of blogging was the start of several on-line, virtual, friendships. Regular readers became…

iPhone Keeps Restarting: (How to Fix)

A New iPhone keeps Restarting? If you got a new iPhone recently and are eligible for replacement without burning a hole in your pocket, the first thing that you do when you are stuck with an iPhone that keeps rebooting, shutting off or freezing is to head to the store and see if you can get it replaced. Older Models, Out of Replacement Period etc. For the rest of the crowd that isn’t as lucky, continue reading the article. My iPhone keeps restarting! What do I do? We noted that this problem occurs predominantly in bit older iPhones i.e. iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s models that upgrade to iOS 8 or later. Many readers also reported that iPhone 6 and 6 Plus reboot randomly after upgrading to iOS 9. My first reaction was – must be a hardware-software incompatibility issue. But wait. Apple isn’t Android. They know what they’re doing and iPhone 4s does run iOS 8 smoothly. Well, that’s not the point anyway. We’re trying to fix an issue here so here are the ways, in which you can try to fix your iPhone tha…

Six Things That Will be Different in 10 years

The end of an old year tends to bring out the predictor urge in many of us. We look back at the 12 months that is now in the history books and wonder what the new year will bring.

Instead of looking ahead only a few months, I thought it would be fun to leap forward a decade. What will be different in 2027? What things that we take for granted today may not exist in their present form in 10 years? Here are a handful that might come to pass:

1)Black Friday will have passed away from lack of interest and the steady shift to Internet shopping. Already Americans are buying more online during the holidays than at brick and mortar stores. That trend will only accelerate. The idea of rushing out to shop right after Thanksgiving dinner, or getting in line at 5:00 AM for a chance to save on a PlayStation will be a distant memory. Such a shift will also mean the end to many of the physical stores that populate our malls and strip centers.

2)Retirement will be later for the majority of folks. No lon…

How To Fix iOS 10 Bluetooth Problems On iPhone (Tips)

Here are tips to fix iOS 10 Bluetooth issues and problems on iPhone, including iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It’s taken a little while but we now have our first real show-stopping bug for iOS 10, and it revolves around the way Bluetooth works on iPhones or, as the case may actually be, the way it doesn’t work. An ever-increasing number of users have been reporting of late that they are in fact experiencing issues where devices running iOS 10 are either refusing to correctly pair with accessories such as speakers or headphones, or when they do pair, the connection is far from stable.

Now, we’re sure there will be some out there that will point to this being a general Bluetooth issue and that the standard is not fit for purpose, meaning Apple’s decision to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 is ill-advised at best. We’d argue that Bluetooth is just fine, except where software issues like this come into play. We expect Apple to get to grips with this just like it would any other bug,…

A Satisfying Retirement on a Limited Budget

It is easier to lead a satisfying retirement if you have few financial worries. While money certainly doesn't buy happiness, few would argue that your options for living how and where you choose are more likely to happen the fatter your investment portfolio. So, this post isn't for you.

On the other side of the issue, much of the popular press would have us believe we are doomed to a future of diminishing opportunities and darkening skies. I disagree. Yes, way too many seniors have been put in a very tough position by recent events and they will struggle. They may have to choose between buying some medicines and skipping meals. For the richest country in the world to allow that to happen is, in my view, criminal.

So, who am I writing for today? This is for those who have a retirement income that is sufficient for our needs and allows for satisfying an occasional want. The Great Recession may still affect what we can afford and how we live.

We have likely downsized some of our exp…

iMessage Error “Waiting for Activation” on iPhone (how to fix )

Tired of iMessage waiting for activation error in iOS 9 or iOS 8.x on iPhone? Or is it just draining the last ounce of patience left in you? Despite our ‘been there done that’ experience, we’re equally skeptic about how to activate iMessage. Sometimes it works just perfectly, but sometimes it drives us crazy. There are quite a lot of fixes recommended almost everywhere but most of it doesn’t work. That’s what prompted us to test with a lot of iPhones and we ended up activating iMessage successfully.

Before You Start To Fix iMessage “Waiting for Activation” Issue on iPhone running iOS 9 or iOS 8.x: Before you start trying out all these methods to get iMessage activated, you’ll need to sort these things out: Make sure in the Phone app, you’ve got your number listed. On top of ‘Contacts’ you should see your number listed (My Number:). If not, you’ll need to go to Settings → Phone → My Number and enter your number.Make sure Date & Time (under General) are correct. Set to ‘Set Automatical…
