Thanksgiving week 2007 is rapidly taking shape as Americans everywhere are preparing to give thanks for the year's bountiful blessings. As for myself, the last past year has been filled with so many reason to be thankful that it's been truly life altering to say the least. I've gained a new lease on living my life out loud as well as continuing my committment to offering the latest information, updates, breaking news, and interactive platforms to the GLBTQI community and beyond. I thank you for your readership and encourage you not to forget those who may not have a horn of plenty. Here are few items for your info basket....
PrimeTime: I have been reading various articles on the greying of gays which have been detailing the plights and challenges that senior gays have been experiencing with long term care and estate planning. However, it was a recent road trip conversation and a visit with an old friend got me pondering about the dilemma of how the lavander lifestyle often leaves some feeling left out of the loop to meet new people and friends. I've found some interesting websites that offer portals of information and a few books on Amazon for those who are not longer tripping the light fantastic but rather dealing with their mortality without the rose colored glasess. Check them out for yourself : http://www.primetime.org/

MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION PLANS: Renewal time is now for a very limited time. Make certain you have researched the best program for the medications you require because not making the right choices can be a costly mistake in the long run. Statewide it's reported that various plans are no longer available and that unsavory firms are proposing faulty products whicho often don't cover the client's claims or visits. Take my advice, don't put off getting assistance. Talk to your pharmacist, caseworker, doctor, family, to help you navigate the system to the formula that will work best for your medical needs. If in doubt contact Medicare directly 1-800-MEIDCARE(663-4227) or their website: http://www.medicare.gov/
