I have Olympic fever, I love the Winter Olympics and so far in the first week, I haven’t been disappointed.

Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it.

(See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)
I’ve been very active my entire life and believe that keeping active into your 40s, 50s and beyond is critically important to ensure a happy and healthy life.
