Friendship for Improved Health


Friendship is an important part of life. We value it for the company it provides, the support it gives, and the joy that it creates in sharing life with others. But recent studies have revealed a previously unknown benefit of friendship—improved physical health.

Staying Warm Without Breaking the Bank


It’s mid-October, and summer memories are fading alongside the leaves. The strength of the New Mexico sun weakens by the evening and sweaters are serving purposes higher than fashion. Winter, and all its joy and sorrow, is coming.

Preparing for Flu Season

Unfortunately, it’s that time of year again. Throughout 2015 The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been tracking the influenza virus in preparation for its peak activity and in early October started publishing data on the 2015-2016 flu season. While cautious in its predictions on this season’s severity, the CDC is urging everyone to get vaccinated, especially seniors.

"Fall Back" on November 1st

"Fall Back" on November 1st

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends on November 1st at 2:00 am which will actually be 1:00 am as we “fall back”. The mornings will get lighter, the evenings will get darker, and the days will get shorter. The best thing? We get an extra hour of sleep. The worst thing? We lose an hour of daylight each day making for short winter nights. When we “spring forward” it’s the opposite, we lose an hour of sleep in the transition, but we gain an extra hour of daylight each day, making for long summer days.
