The centre of the header is the theme section,  modified monthly in relation to the news and important events. The site philosophy is to be an added source of information and news for older adults to whom the site is dedicated. The aim is to inform, encourage and motivate 55+ year old site visitors to remain active and participate in as much as they can. Life is most enjoyed when you participate in as much as you can.

We thank all who have visited and sent compliments and commentary making this task very gratifying and satisfying.
