ElderChicks: Comments from "Life Masters"

 

When you read the new blog, ElderChicks.org, the words "feisty", "funny", "smart", and "creative" will immediately come to mind to describe the women who are sharing their ideas and experiences. Created by two septuagenarians, this blog is a "virtual community of women living full lives and adapting to the rapid changes in the world, well past the time their parents would have imagined." Check it out... and join the conversation.
