Congratulations Betty White!

Congratulations Betty White for your 2012 Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Show host for our show Betty White's Off Their Rockers and Outstanding Variety Special for
Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute To America's Golden Girl.

It has been a thrill working with Betty on Betty White's Off Their Rockers and I look forward to our second season. Betty has been one of the women of TV that I have both admired and loved since I can remember. It is such an honor to be working with her.

I wish this golden girl and fearless leader of our band of merry pranksters best wishes and God speed in all she does!

Happy 4th of July!

When you think of Independence Day, what first comes to mind? A day off from work? Barbecue? Will Smith?

What are you celebrating today? I think we've lost sight of what July 4th was originally meant to celebrate. Without July 4, we would have been celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, on June 2 (which is also my birthday) this year. Do you know how many years we've been a country? Do you even  think about our country's independence from England today? It's probably politically incorrect to talk about our now ally as our former tyrant, even though that's what today is all about.

I love America and believe it is the greatest nation in the world. We certainly aren't perfect, but I think we are the best. I love to travel, but in the words of Dorothy, "There's no place like home."

Take a few moments today and remember why we celebrate the 4th of July, then take the day off, eat some barbecue and watch Will Smith in Independence Day!

Tyler Perry, the good and the not so good.

I saw Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection last night. Let me preface this by saying, I love me some Tyler Perry, however this is probably my least favorite.

Madea is an icon in her own right and is always fun to spend time with but I just didn't find the usual funny I've come to expect from the franchise. The concept showed lots of promise, the actors are all competent in their own right, but something just didn't deliver in this movie. While no one can hit the ball out of the park every time, while not a strike out, it was only a base hit.

On the other hand, the preview of Alex Cross, starring Tyler Perry looked amazing. I can't wait to see this new action hero genre that Tyler is venturing into! While Madea's Witness Protection may prove that Tyler Perry can possible do wrong, I think Alex Cross will show that he indeed can do everything!

Happy Fiscal New Year!

Today is the first day of a new fiscal year! No matter what the news says, no matter what your bank account says, declare July 1, 2012 the beginning of your new fiscal year. According to  Fiscal: of or pertaining to financial matters in general. 

In the 1960's we said "Today is the first day of the rest of my life." In 2012 say "Today I will be fiscally responsible, and this is the first day of a new financial chapter in my life." Do something new today that is a step toward your fiscal well being. For some that may mean giving, for some that may mean saving, for others budgeting, for another it may mean doing something you have never done before!

I've never written a blog before. Today is the first day of a new entrepreneurial journey. It's never too late, you're never too old. What will you do today?

This blog is geared for those of us that are not the coveted demographics by the media, but we are the greatest generation, Baby Boomers! We are healthier and living longer than any other generation. Not content to crawl into a corner, sit down and be quite, we are sassy seniors living out loud. I will be talking about things that interest everyone with a senior twist. I welcome your suggestions and comments and hope you will join me on this journey!
