Women over 50

Just a couple of “older” women from a magazine article. SEXY!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-combs/what-not-to-wear-after-ag_b_6656902.html

Ever seen Helen Mirren in a bathing suit??

What is this crap about what women over 50 shouldn’t wear? Are we all supposed to wear flowered dresses and orthopedic shoes?? Really? Come on now. I never see any articles about what not to wear when you are UNDER 50. Why is that? Women over 50 today are sophisticated, trendy and beautiful. Wear what the hell you like. I love this article take a minute to read it if you are over 50 it will give you a laugh and you out there under 50 well one day perhaps you will be as self respecting and as confident as some of us are. Until then you wear what you like and I will wear what I damn please.

Stress, And Your Body Thinking It Might Die

2HelpfulGuys

You have a headache, an upset stomach, problems getting to sleep, elevated blood pressure and chest pains.

If you looked this up on WebMd.com you’d probably think you were dying from some sort of horrifying disease. But in fact, these are the symptoms of a much more common health problem affecting almost all of us.

Stress

In the same way that pain isn’t all bad because it lets you know the difference between a warm shower and scalding yourself with boiling water, stress isn’t always a bad thing either.

But the problem with stress is that your physiological responses to non-immediate stresses are largely the same as when you’re fighting for survival.

Mathilde Roussel is a French artist. Based in Paris, Roussel works in various materials for her sculptures but one of her most remembered work is the Living Grass. This collection shows the transformation of soil wheat and seeds, fabric and recycled material to show the effects of transformation of material as a metaphor of the human body. After installation, the figures transform over the period of exhibition showing. Time sculpts the forms, makes them change and then decay.
