It's a big secret that I am a huge fan of AARP. Yes, you read that right, before today I have not yet bragged publicly about being a 7 year subscriber to the AARP newsletter. Though I was offended initially that when I turned 50 there were "crickets" from AARP despite being told by nearly everyone that the day after I would get non stop circulars! So after waiting an appropriate amount of time, I signed us up and it's true - the mail never stops coming! BUT honestly, that's not a complaint and, the AARP magazine has some of the best resourced, referenced health and financial news (plus other actually cool bits of info) of the many general public health newsletters I have read loyally over the years (Berkeley Wellness, Harvard Health, Harvard Women's Heart News, MedscapeNews to name a few) . Really, the monthly AARP magazine is great.
Now AARP is recruiting what they call a Cupid Crew to decorate and send notes to Seniors who otherwise might not get personal notes and cards. Using the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday as the date it makes this (non sensical) day a good focal point early in the year to keep our mind on the altruism, compassion and thankfulness we all just experienced.
