I’ve made a habit lately of studying the Amish. I use the word “study” loosely as this is not a simple curiosity of mine or some kind of theological experiment. My exploration flows out of a deep respect and admiration for their faith and spirituality. We English (that’s what the Amish call us outside their communities) recognize them because of their familiar beards, horse-drawn buggies, fine woodworking, or barn-raisings, but there’s a lot more to this group than sturdy furniture and firm dispositions. They have a lively, vibrant faith despite their archaic lifestyles.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rates the relative quality of the private plans that are offered to Medicare beneficiaries through the Medicare Advantage program. CMS rates Medicare Advantage plans on a one to five-star scale, the highest quality being five stars. This star rating provides an overall measure of the plan’s quality and is an indication of the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness, and beneficiary satisfaction provided by the Medicare Advantage plan. This means that the higher the star rating a plan receives, the more likely you are to receive the care you need, when and where you need it - and most of all, you are more likely to be satisfied with your plan.

With a new school year on the horizon, it’s time to think about what’s for lunch. Brown bagging it is plenty economical, but a steady diet of sandwiches becomes boring pretty quickly, to say nothing of the fact that all those servings of refined carbs simply don’t provide the energy necessary to power you through a long afternoon.
Calling it a “stunning power grab,” Attorney General Tom Horne wants a judge to block a decision by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission to investigate whether he has been using his office for campaigning.

The movie “The Matrix” features a computer hacker called Neo, and deals with the themes of reality and freedom. In the movie, most of humanity has been enslaved and locked into a virtual reality called the matrix, which is controlled by intelligent machines. A dawning awareness has led some to escape from the matrix and form a resistance group to fight the ruling machines. Neo joins the rebellion, and struggles to free humanity from the grand illusion of the matrix.

If you believe your appearance is important and if you are concerned about looking your best with minimal down time, if any, perhaps you may want to consider Botox cosmetic surgery. Botox therapy is not a filler substance like Juvederm or Restylane. It does not directly affect the skin.
When the subject of retirement comes up, it often conjures up images of lazy afternoons on a hammock, leisurely walks in the morning sunshine, floating peacefully on a raft in the pool, and other such restful, relaxing ways to spend time. Or retirement often implies completing all of the things on a “bucket list” before becoming too old to do so. Although these can certainly be some of the well-deserved choices of retirement, they don’t necessarily have to define the entire experience. Creatively and conscientiously spending one’s time in retirement is worth a little thought and consideration. One of the ways to create a meaningful retirement is volunteering. It offers purposeful activity and a sense of giving back to loved ones and the community.
As somebody who spends a whole lot of time thinking about grilling, I love that so many Americans celebrate the Fourth of July by busting out the grill.
