1. From Debbie Ward: I’ve finally admitted that getting a smaller house means getting rid of LARGE rugs. I have two antique oriental rugs that I need to sell (9’ x 12’ and 10’ x 13’). I’d appreciate help finding someplace to sell them. Thanks for any advice you can give.
2. Phil Gerson shared this interesting piece on Gerotranscendence, a theory that gives us a path to combatting ageism. See attachment.
