A request 

This request appeared in my email in-box the other day; it seems bona fide so I don't object to passing it on:

Mr. Borrows,

Would you please consider posting this to your blog, distributing it to those you think might find it of interest, and/or responding yourself?

Many thanks,


Seeking stories and people to interview for a book project exploring all aspects of the ways in which we now age, and how folks are adapting to increased lifespans. Themes in the book will include keeping fit enough to enjoy the 70s, 80s, 90s; saving enough for a longer retirement; innovative paths for those post-65; post-retirement careers, jobs, activities, larks; marriages that go on, and on, and on, and on; quirky approaches to the senior years; where to live; senior tourism; organ regeneration; the importance of attitude; and whatever else those planning for or enjoying a long life can tell me. Interested in stories (and the people with the stories to tell) both happy and not-so-happy, funny and difficult. If you have a story or know of someone I should interview/profile, please e-mail me at:
