Old Fashioned Pasta Salad

I love to eat all kinds of salads in the summer.  Pulling and eating veggies and fruit out of the garden is something I look forward to every year. Anything heavy in this hot weather just doesn’t appeal to me.  Here’s an oldie, but goodie, recipe from my grandmother.  It’s a great standby recipe that I use for most family gatherings and is a huge hit.

Guest Post – Ideas For Retired Parents

My parents have retired and are slowing down a bit but have strong clear minds and are still capable of so many things.  Here’s an excellent article written by Mary Kremer highlighting some great summer ideas you can pass on to your retired friends and family.

How to Have the Best Summer of Your Life at 65+

Author: Mary Kremer

My in-laws are some of the most active people I know.  At 65 and 75, with 32 grandkids and counting, they manage to volunteer Tuesday-Thursday of every week, teach HAM radio classes, make hand sewn birthday presents for each grand kid, and spend the weekends having dinner with various children and grandchildren. Of the myriad of lessons they’ve taught me, one is age definitely doesn’t have to slow you down.

So, the summer is upon us, and it’s not too late to make it the best one of your life. Here are a few tips on budget-friendly hobbies, activities, and vacations to help you get started on your adventures and spend more time with the people you love.
