September is Healthy Aging Month
by Debbie Rosenberg
We all know that the kids go back to school in September, but who knew that September is Healthy Aging Month among many other month long celebrations? I had no clue, but I have to admit that I'm aging. We have a number of books that may help us live longer and healthier if we follow the advice. Most are found in the 612 & 613 areas, but here are a few I think are particularly helpful.
First, let's start with comedy because we all could use a good laugh!
