[ - ] Someone posted yesterday about nobody giving up their seat for her while pregnant. I'm on the ferry. It is full. There is a toolbag taking up 4 seats while others stand. Two with his golf clubs! What has our society come to? Please raise your children properly. If this was my son, I'd throw the clubs in the river. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Have a 2009 Highlander Limited & like it very much. Had also looked at an Acura, and found it very similar but less expensive. I read somewhere Highlander and (Acura?) one of the other brands use the same chassis. The 3rd row is tight for an adult. Can fit 3 in 2nd row, only if no car seats. Overall, very happy. Lots of carrying space w/ 3rd row down. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think "middle age" means the middle year of your life. I think it's a span of time between young adulthood and being more elderly. And I don't think 35 is it, but I might be wrong. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think middle age signifies that life is divided into halves any more than "the middle ages" were halfway between anything. It's more like state of being decidedly past life's beginnings and preparing to approach the aging process. I'm shooting solidly for 45-55 or 59 if you want to stretch it. Past 60 you're and it goes very rapidly for some as opposed to others. Past 75 everything's gravy if nothing else has gone wrong. [ Reply | More ]

Just a note. My mom lives on the UES and ran with all the thoroughbreds in keeping the aging process at bay. She had somewhat "reinvented herself" when she came to Manhattan as a 2nd wife and when she was 60 she was still telling people she was 50. When I was in college she was still showing people pictures of me when I was ten saying that I was her daughter. My dad in Jersey had full custody of me and I was not permitted to meet anyone she knew. When I did visit at age 19 or 20 I was her "niece." She held on to youth and "sexual vibrance" so long that when her body began to break down from other conditions in her 60s, she was not at all prepared for it, because she had never given herself that time to adjust to getting older. She was young, young, young - until the day until she developed a parkinsonian tremor and was suddenly ill with no one looking at her as if she were attractive. She just suddenly looked old. She still hasn't gotten over how "unfair" life is that she is now in her late 70s and she cries on the phone all the time about how she's not ready to die, why is this happening to her. No recognition that people can and do start to fade in their 70s towards their 80s. I don't feel really bad for her, but it's one reason why I hope I approach aging with a healthier mindset.
