Enjoy it now, a colleague said, because youll find out soon enough that every time you do it again youre a year older, but the competition is still By competition he meant students and they always are 18, or 19, or 20, but you get the point: the gap between us keeps growing.
And while I long ago stopped rowing against them, there are still all sorts of ways they can make me feel my age. For instance, I told a class the other day that I began college as an art major and the year was Their jaws dropped.
Yes, I said, that was a long time ago. Want to know how long? It was the year of Super Bowl I. No one actually said yikes! Nevertheless, I have seen all 45 Super Bowls 44 on TV and one in person but dont ask me any details or scores because I cant answer. To me, the Super Bowls are one big super blur. And it has nothing to do with alcohol consumption at parties. Actually, Ive been to very few Super Bowl parties. I pre- fer to watch the game at home, particularly if my team, the Green Bay Packers, are playing.
But there have been so many games now that I tend to re- member only an isolated play here or there or some random incident that has nothing to do with the game itself, the stone crab claws former Times Lead- er publisher Pat McHugh had flown in from South Beach for example, or Mike Caputos dads sausage and peppers. Or the one Super Bowl that I went to. My Uncle Eddie took me.
It was the first Super Bowl the Dallas Cowboys won. They beat the Miami Dolphins but dont ask me the score. The Dolphins might have been held to just a field goal, but dont quote me. What I do remember is that the game was played at Tulane Stadium and it wasnt equipped to handle the crowd.
There werent enough rest rooms and the lines at the portable johns were a mile long. I watched from the back of the bleachers as a bunch of guys in Dolphins regalia formed a circle for pri- vacy and took turns peeing in the middle. But as the kickoff neared, a lot of the guys who already had their turn took off for their seats, leaving those remaining with little cover. I had just turned 21 and Uncle Eddie said I could go out with the big boys as long as they took care of me.
And, man, did they take care of me. Another thing I remember about that game is the morning I went out walking by myself and bumped into Yogi Berra on Bourbon Street. He stopped to chat like we were old friends. The 67 game I recall better than any. Remember, Im a Packers fan winners of four Super Bowls, counting last years just sayin. Every once in a while, like maybe on Jeopardy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the question will come up What was the score of the first Super Bowl?
Packers over Chiefs, , I snap. I own that question. The Pack beat the Raiders the following year but that game is not as vivid as the first. And the thing I remember most about the Packers win over the Patri- ots in Super Bowl XXXI is not the game but the cheesehead I bought from a guy in Swoyers- ville after seeing a little ad in the paper. It was ten bucks but I would have paid I gave it to a young Packers fan when I spoke at a Cub Scouts dinner.
Its Jimmy Cefalos yard touchdown reception against the Redskins. I helped coached that kid in Little League. What I remember is Jimmy spiking the ball in the end zone. It was the most feeble spike in the history of the NFL but a flamboyant gesture from Cefalo who every other time he scored in high school, college and the pros had just trotted over and handed the ball to the official.
Ed Ackerman, optimist eackerman psdispatch. Not that she had any choice. She was fated to be a Giant fan from the day in when she was 14 months old and her fa- ther Joe, a Giants diehard, put a Giants shirt on her and brought her to the Dis- patch office and told her to Do a touch- down. Taylor picks up the story: My father heard they were looking for Giants fans at the Dispatch. He taught me to throw my hands in air like a touchdown signal. At first when they saw how little I was they said what are we going to do with her.
Then Dad said do a touchdown and we they sawit they said ok and I was on the front page. TodayTaylor is 26andbackonthe front page representing Giants fans. Her earliest memory of being a Giants fan was when she was a little kid dressed in Giants gear and watching games with her Dad, brother Joe Jr, also a Giants fan, and her grandmother Maryann Musto, a Dallas Cowboys fan.
Among her collection of Giants mem- orabilia are the usual arrayof helmets, jer- seys, license plates, varieties of gear and bracelets. But her favorite Giant memento is one of her school pictures from third grade autographed by retired Giants line- backer Lawrence Taylor.
When I was in third grade my Dad took my grandma to Dallas for a game. Somehow they made it into a party with the Giants and he got my picture signed. Everyone always asks, but no, Taylor is not named after Lawrence Taylor. Her fa- vorite player of all-time was Jeremy Shockey. Now that hes gone her favorite current player is Hakeem Nicks. Taylor works as a dental hygienist for Dr. Pittelli in Kingston, who is a Packers fan. He told me I was fired when the Gi- ants beat them, she said with a chuckle.
He told me I could wear a Giants jersey insteadof a smockonMondayif theywin. I told him if hell give me a raise if they win, he can cut my pay if they lose. Taylor also works part-time as a Coors Light Girl. One night on the job she had to give away Giants tickets. I told my boss, please dont make me do this. There is one thingabout the Giants Tay- lor doesnt like no cheerleaders. She wrote the Giants a complaint letter for not hav- ing cheerleaders. They wrote back: thanks, but no thanks.
Taylor will be working a Coors Light promotion at Goodfellas in Scranton for the first 45 minutes of the game. Then shell try to relax and watch the rest of it. By the way, month-old Taylor must have gotten a workout doing touch- downs back in Below Taylor kicks of our list of fans who predict a Patriot victory today.
She was then and is still a Giants fan. Most Sundays his team isnt on TV, but thats not as bad as it might be because, as Alex says, Theres an app for that. He follows the Patriots games in real time through a scoreboard application on his iPod real games and fantasy games. In my Fantasy league I drafted all Patriots and went to the playoffs, Alex said. It depends what my dad says. Alex is 12 years old. Hes a sixth grader at Pittston Area. Alex said he became a Patriots fan about five years ago.
My dad was watching a Patriots game one day and I came down and watched it with himand his friends. That was all it took. Alex liked what he saw and he liked Tom Brady, too. Though he was only eight when the Patriots lost tothe Giants inthe Su- per Bowl he has a vivid memory of it, or one play anyway. I remember a receiver from the Gi- ants, DavidTyree, caught the pass off his helmet andtheywonandtheyruinedour perfect season.
Since hes been a Patriot fan, hes been easy to buy gifts for. Ive got 13 pictures, a Brady jersey, hats, gloves, pants, coats. Youve got to have the stuff, if youre going to be a New England fan and Im happy to be one, he said. Alex lives in Hughestown. His mother is Stacey. He has a sister, Sydney; and brother, Mason who is a Colts fan but plays for the Patriots.
Hes on the Pitt- ston Area varsity basketball team. Alexs father, Bill, is a Giants fan with a Jeremy Shockey license on his vehicle. That should make interesting viewing at the Gross home in Hughestown today.
Alexs mom is going to throw a little home party for the game. Alex predicts New England will win and has one fervent wish. I want Grontkowski to play, Alex said. BelowAlex kicks off a list of fans who predicted a Patriot victory.

While commercials can some- times be more memorable than the game itself, two of those commercials, one for Fiat and one for Bud Light, will be spe- cial for a different reason West Pittston native Amanda Booth, 25, has a role in both.
The Fiat commercial is under wraps and pretty secretive, Booth, 25, said in a telephone in- terview from California. I had to sign a non-discloser contract because of the shock and awe factor of the Fiat ad. A lot of advertisers have leaked their Super Bowl com- mercials online via YouTube, but you wont find either of Booths commercials there. Booth takes acting lessons when time allows and shes look- ing forward to bigger and better parts.
Booth has also acted in several film shorts and did the voice of ShannonPerryinthe videogame L. Although she is leaning to- wards acting, this Wyom- ing Area graduate has not turned her back on modeling.
She went to NewYork City in to pur- sue a modeling career on her own and never looked back. I arrived in California and fell in love, she said, adding that she purchased her first home there last year. She would love be reborn as a surfer and can be found surfing nearby her home whenever time permits. She recently shot a page layout for Surfing maga- zine, that magazines version of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.
Having done runway work for Fashion Week in Paris recent- ly, she estimates she has traveled a million air miles since her ca- reer began. I wish I had all of those frequent flyer miles, but I dont, she said.
In many cases, the agency will book and pay for my flight, so I dont get the mile- age. Although she still has family living in Greater Pittston, Booth doesnt get back very often, but vows in to re-establish old friendships and try to spend some quality time back home.

For those who have never done it before, it can be a daunting process. Do you have any other items that are of value? Next, outline your debts. Do you still have a mortgage, a loan, a credit card balance to pay? Any overdrafts or equity release arrangements also need to be accounted for. What about the kids? If you have children under the age of 18, a will helps you to plan for their future by allowing you to nominate their guardians in the event of your death. Without a legally binding instruction from you, via your will, your.
Value your estate The first thing to do is to understand what your estate will be worth. You can do this by making a list of your assets and debts. Your assets will include things like your home or any property you own. Do you have any savings, stocks and shares or premium bonds?
What about life insurance, endowments policies, pensions or policies that pay out on your death? Other assets to consider are the physical ones - your car or any other vehicles you Who do you want to benefit?
While it might be easy to bequeath the majority of your assets, are there specific items or monies that you would like to go to people who may not be a blood relative? Do you want to donate some money to a local charity or perhaps contribute to a cause close to your heart? Donating to a charity If you decide to leave money in your will to a charity, ensure you include its full name, address and registered charity number.
Without it, your charity may not be eligible for your gift. Choose your executor This is important. Unregulated will writers can hold themselves out to be experts when they may not be and DIY online wills only take into account straightforward circumstances, which could leave your loved ones in a legal minefield if your estate is a little more complicated.
How do I make sure my will is valid? Your will needs to be signed by yourself and two independent witnesses in each others presence. In these instances there needs to be a clause added stating that you understood the contents of the will before it was signed. If your circumstances change it invalidates your will.
So if you get married, divorced or have children, for example, you need to account for it in your will. CALL www. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures.

Top models like the ST-Line get adaptive dampers for the first time in a mainstream Focus. Since Ford has sold more than 16 million Focuses worldwide, in part thanks to a reputation for great ride and handling, so the new version has some very big shoes to fill.
For the fourth generation Focus Ford have improved interior space and quality and added cutting-edge technology. And it really is all-new with a new platform, engineered to be stiffer and safer in a crash yet lighter than the old Focus - by some 1,kg for the three-cylinder manual.
It is also not as instantly recognisable as a Focus with the external redesign having cues of Mazda, Mercedes and even BMW probably no bad thing. The profile is sleeker with a longer bonnet and more rear-set screen pillars plus a longer wheelbase, all giving improved aerodynamic drag and reduced wind noise.

We can all have beautiful hair Case Studies Phil I am a year-old female. I take 19 tablets a day and 2 insulin injections. I have in the past years experienced a considerable amount of hair loss from the front of my head, this has been very worrying. I was recommended to speak to Sandra, a very experienced hair loss expert. I decided on a hair piece and was offered plenty of advice on the choice. The piece I chose, was themed to my exact hair colour.
It feels excellent to wear and I am so delighted with it. There was absolutely no salon pitch, and I was given at every stage, a chance to change my mind. Sandra made me feel very comfortable and answered any questions or queries with nothing but honesty.
I would not hesitate to recommend this procedure to anyone, but especially to people of my age who are probably more nervous. They will definitely be put at ease. We were recommended this salon with the hospital. Sandra was fantastic with her and was really welcoming as soon as she arrived.
My mum was nervous what to expect and Sandra put her at ease with the whole thing. Sandra managed to do some fittings with her in a private room and matched my Mum with a really nice wig that suited her and she was over the moon with it. We would highly recommend Sandra and the salon and we will likely be back to look at other options and advice in the future.
Thanks Lizzie I had three hair toppers cut by Sandra, at her lovely Clinic. What a great job she did. The ends of my toppers had gone terrible, so she shaped them and cut them shorter. They now look great.
I will definitely be going back when I need another one cut. Anonymous Thank you, Sandra, for helping me find the perfect wig and giving me the confidence to feel myself again.
It has been an amazing experience being with you. You were very professional and put yourself in my shoes and helped me, to find the perfect wig. I would highly recommend you to anyone and I will definitely come back to you again.
Women aged 50 to 70 who are registered with a GP are automatically offered breast screening every three years. The NHS is currently in the process of extending the programme as a trial, offering screening to some women aged 47 to Once the excesses of Christmas are out of the way, there is a great chance for a fresh start.
The mammogram is an x-ray of the breasts and takes only five minutes although the appointment is around 30 minutes. The breast screening programme saves around 1, lives a year by diagnosing cancer early. We really need to look after our health so if you have had a nagging problem, are worried about something health-related or just need reassurance that all is well, do something about it!
Free bowel cancer home testing and breast screening, for example, are literally life-savers. The bowel cancer home testing kits automatically arrive through the post for 60 to 74 year-olds every two years. You can ask for a kit if you are over 75 by calling To find out more call Do you want to stop smoking in ? Making that decision may be the best one you ever make - and there has never been a better time to quit.
Vaping using e-cigarettes is a useful alternative, especially as a start to quitting completely. Here, you inhale nicotine through a vapour rather than smoke for much lower levels. You may want to cut down on your alcohol consumption. This is an area many of us really need to review so New Year is a good time.
The latest NHS guidelines say that both men and women who drink regularly should consume no more than 14 units a week. If these spaces are tall, shelves could be placed at higher levels to make the most of this space. Small under-stair cupboards could be transformed into drawers for all sorts of things. So before you start taking an objective look at potential new storage space around your home, take a long, hard look at your current cupboards, shelves and wardrobes and de-clutter.
To house the rest, and as a temporary solution, there are plenty of clever storage systems around - from clear plastic boxes and wicker baskets to racking and wooden chests. There are. And these sentiments are echoed by chartered architectural technologist Gary Willis.
Most people will consider what is directly in front of them on a horizontal plane; look upwards for your storage needs. Very cheap, heavy duty racking or spur shelving in a garage or shed can generate substantial storage space. Just ensure that brackets and racking are securely fixed to the walls first. Exploit this space by placing charming storage boxes to hide away items like old cook books, sewing kits etc.
Consider furniture you can buy relatively cheaply that you can improve. It could also function as a shoe cupboard at the lower level, and the sides employed to hang keys, scarves and hats.
Rather than use loose furniture that is often set into the room, consider a bay window seat with integral storage. A bed headboard can be built for additional bedding storage, plus somewhere to put books, lamps or a radio on top. An ottoman or upholstered cube can double as a dressing table chair and offers extra space, and an artistic.
Lofts are often under-used areas in our homes but can be altered at reasonable cost to become an effective storage room by boarding out. And an added bonus is that floor boarding helps insulate the house, preventing heat loss and reducing your heating bills. So you get much more storage space and kinder heating bills as well!

He was lying in the bath on his birthday, nursing an epic hangover from the celebrations the night before when there was the most almighty crash. I knew he was dead from the strange angle of his body. I loved that cat.
My kids had recently left home and now the cat was dead. I was really upset. It triggered a deluge of emotion, an event that somehow tipped me over the edge. I began to consider my own mortality and, out of that, the idea for exploring my own past somehow crystallised. I have no recollection of him and he never featured in my life. In the end, it did for the marriage. They lived in a succession of rented rooms, the young lad trailing around after her when she went drinking in famous watering holes like the Colony.
But, amid all the booze, it was a creative hotbed. I clearly remember staring up through the thick fog of tobacco smoke, the occasional hand ruffling my hair or giving me a florin, sometimes even a ten bob note. But there was a feeling of community and I was never in any danger. She was doing what she thought was the right thing. He was the drummer in an obscure jazz band in Kentucky. Graffiti was becoming popular and people had these amazing names — or tags, as they were called.
Now I had mine. My father started injecting himself with paraffin and was then sectioned under the Mental Health Act. He died aged 40 from a whole variety of drug-related conditions, his wife following him, probably from a drug overdose, a year later.
That was the most shocking thing she could have said in many ways. The fact that he was really nice upset me. But then heroin is an unforgiving mistress. Given his colourful upbringing, it is perhaps not too surprising that Suggs married young. I wanted to be married to her. They have two daughters — Scarlett, 29 and Viva, 25 — who now sing as a duo under their own names. Nor has he hung up his own microphone.
For me, the band has always been a bit like a surrogate family. Amazing, really. For more information and to book tickets for venues near you, visit www. Now they bring golf. If not already members extra disposable time is increasingly spent at their local golf club. Well, what else can they do to fill the livelong day that used to be occupied by work?
Furthermore, as pronounced in a once-popular lyric, the best things in life are illegal, immoral or they make you fat, and golf is the exception that proves this rule.
Golf is good exercise, stimulating competitive sport and warm companionship, and it is inevitably staged in a wonderful scenic setting, be it undulating parkland, broken woodland, or water-fringed links with gorse and dunes and ups and downs. At the same time, big prize money has made the professional game a great spectator sport, too, commanding audiences of millions on TV and adding universal appeal to the game.
During an average game of golf you are likely to walk five miles. Can you remember the last time you did that? It has all the right things to promote good health. Cardio vascular workout, exercising the limbs and promoting social mixing both on and off the course.
Being 50 plus you do need to be aware of the dangers of playing golf if they have an existing back problem. If you have not exercised your lower and middle back muscles for some It is important to seek medical advice and follow it. It may be that a gentle introduction, building up to full participation over an extended period is the answer for you.

If you get the bug you can engage the services of a club professional to teach you the finer points but it is equally suited to the amateur who just enjoys the exercise and the company. We hear much of the degeneration of our mental health as we age.
Golf is not only physically beneficial but has been proved to stimulate mental health by improving hand to eye co-ordination and mental agility through the scoring system. Coupled with club selection and observational exercise it is an all round game to keep seniors on the ball for many years to come.
Like many thousands, I started on semi retirement, proceeding from rabbit to veteran without middle-aged mastery in-between, inspired by the late eminent Seve Ballesteros who gave me a demonstration on a Press trip to La Manga Club in Spain. My wife also started then. The number of women refusing to be golf widows and insisting on playing, too, is exploding, limited only by the discrimination against them at some clubs.
Incidentally, the days when only golf club members could acquire an official handicap are over. Golfing holidays play a large part in the over 50s lifestyle, as they open the door to sporting pleasure in the UK and throughout the world. Altogether, the deal gives you a choice of seven star courses including Scottish-style links, sheltered forest and pleasant parkland.

As heart attack rates soar and stress-related illness becomes common, we owe it to ourselves to factor relaxation into our weekly routine.
Even retirement can be stressful. Sometimes we can relax in a hobby — lose ourselves in model-making or crafts, or help our bodies de-stress with a game of badminton, a session of Tai Chi, going swimming or taking a lovely long walk in the fresh air, away from phones and computers. There are many different types of massage available including aromatherapy massage when warmed essential oils are used on the body with a variety of stroking, rubbing and kneading movements. Marie Hurst from Body Harmony, who specialises in aromatherapy and Bowen Therapy — a very gentle massage for specific problems — says that stress can be a killer.
