Rehoming a pet in retirement

When it comes to pet ownership, there are a number of proven health benefits for older people. For instance, walking the dog gives you a reason to exercise, improving your mental and physical health, and at the same time brings you into contact with other people and can often result in making new friends on 'dog walks'.

Your home
An extract from The Good Retirement Guide 2018, edited by Allan Esler Smith published by Kogan Page

For most people their home will be a central part of their lives for economic and sentimental reasons. This is emphasized by a number of old familiar sayings - 'An Englishman's home is his castle', 'home is where the heart is' and 'there's no place like home'. Perhaps it is best summed up by Michael J Rosen 'It welcomes you upon your return'.

Animal charities need your help!

This divide gives Lincoln its distinctive character.

I suspect that out of all the items and paraphernalia collected throughout the world, stamps must be among the most popular. Jersey Post's contribution to philately is immense.

Following the introduction of adhesive postage stamps in 1840, British stamps were used in Jersey for the next 100 years. With the German occupation of the island in 940, mail between Jersey and England was forbidden and messages could only be sent on special forms provided by the German Red Cross.

Causes of Cancer - Diet
An extract from 'your guide for the cancer journey' by Mark Greener, published by Sheldon Press

Cancer is intimately linked to diet, but it is far too large a topic to cover in any detail here. There is plenty of information in books and websites dedicated to the topic, however.

Broadly, eating plenty of fruit and vegetables seems to protect against mouth, throat, oesophageal, stomach, lung and, probably, nasopharynx, colorectal, ovarian, womb, pancreatic and liver malignancies.

Park Living
By Alastair Wallbanks

Retiring, or approaching retirement should be a time of excitement and anticipation. A time which can provide an excellent opportunity to make a fresh start.
