Mary Mills Barrow

My name is Mary Mills Barrow. I’m a wife and mother of three, a full-time writer and sun protection activist. I studied in the United States and in Australia and it was in Australia that I first became aware of the problems caused by unprotected exposure to the sun. (Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world.) When I returned to the U.S. with my entrepreneurial husband, I was horrified at the epidemic of preventable skin cancer here.

With my husband, I co-authored “Sun Protection For Life: Your Guide To A Lifetime Of Healthy & Beautiful Skin” (New Harbinger Publications). Although certainly not a best seller, the book provides the framework for skin cancer prevention and detection habits and introduced the acronym “SunAWARE” which was later endorsed by a number of not-for-profit organizations working in the field including the Dermatology Nurses Association, the Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation, and The Melanoma International Foundation. The book also won our first Gold Triangle award from the American Academy of Dermatology.

In addition to “Sun Protection for Life,” I’ve written two books aimed at children and teens which incorporate the SunAWARE acronym and will help educate young people about the importance of beginning good sun protection habits early in life. These books won the Gold Triangle Award from the American Academy of Dermatology this year.

In the meantime, my husband and I founded Coolibar, a sun protective clothing company. Although I am no longer active in the running of the company, I believe Coolibar offers the best sun protective clothing on the market today and I will occasionally discuss its products, although always with the caveat that I do have an interest in the company. In that spirit, I’ll mention that Coolibar was just awarded the Seal of Recognition for its clothing from the American Academy of Dermatology, the first sun protective clothing company to be so recognized.

Currently, I’m working with a variety of organizations, including the Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation to develop classroom lessons for each of the five steps in the SunAware acronym.

Snickers

Hi, I am Snickers and I am a Goldendoodle, part Golden Retriever and part Standard Poodle. This is my puppy photo. Mom says I am cute as a bugs ear, but do bugs have ears? She also calls me a silly goose, which happens when I chew up things now and then. I am now three and a half years old and weight 75 lbs. Yes, I shed. Alot. What I love to do is carry in the groceries and the mail. Sometimes I help clear the table by carrying the place mats to the kitchen. Well, now I have my own Dog Blog, which is really cool.  I am looking forward to telling you about the best dog trails, parks and places to take your best furry friends.

Del Webb 2013 Baby Boomer Survey

According to the 2013 Del Webb survey, which polled still-working boomers ages 50 to 60 years old, most plan to retire from their current full-time career by the age of 65, compared to a median age of 67 in 2010.

-- More than half (57 percent) of still-working boomers surveyed intend to retire from their current full-time career by age 65.

-- The boomer retirement plan today is more in line with Del Webb Baby Boomer data from nearly 20 years ago (1996), when 50-year-olds planned to retire at a median age of 63.

-- Meanwhile, consistent with prior boomer surveys, 41 percent are either likely or very likely to move at some point, with 29 percent currently undecided on a future move.

"Boomers are clearly feeling more positive about their situation and the housing market in general, with more expecting to retire sooner than just three years ago," said Deborah Wahl, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for PulteGroup Inc., parent company of Del Webb, the nation's leading builder of communities targeted to pre-retirement and retiring boomers. "The percentage of respondents who indicate that they are likely to move again is comparable to prior studies and is significant when you consider the vast group of 79 million boomers in America today."

Baby Boomers Make Terrific Entrepreneurs

Baby Boomer entrepreneurs are resilient leaders, can leverage their reputation, draw from their network and experience and know how to respond to situations. According to Money and U.S. News, Baby Boomer's growth as entrepreneurs is partially due to financial need. While the U.S. unemployment rate among boomers was significantly lower (4.9 percent) than the national average (7 percent) in November, boomers suffered financially during the Great Recession, losing 25 to 28 percent of their median net worth, according to a 2013 study by Pew Charitable Trusts. The majority of people retiring today "do not have the financial means to underwrite 20 to 30 years of their lives," says Elizabeth Isele, co-founder of Senior Entrepreneurship Works, a nonprofit that helps seniors age 50 and older start businesses. But others, who may be in better financial shape, are becoming their own boss to pursue an occupational dream years in the making, she notes.

Emotional Fireworks

Start by staying calm. Keep yourself from getting sucked into the emotional vortex. Asking yourself, "What is the best thing to do right now?" can help you gain some perspective and keep your own emotions in check.

Try to understand what's going on for the other person. When you understand, you are more equipped to respond in an empathetic manner. When people feel that someone really knows what they are going through, it helps them; they don't feel so alone and scared.

Let the other person vent. If someone has a whole bunch of hurt, pain, or anger he or she needs to release, it has to come out, and that can be a difficult thing to experience. Let the other person get out their negative feelings, but don't become a punching bag.

Look for something positive. There is another side to every upset, but finding it can be a challenge. Taking a few minutes to encourage the person to focus on what is and isn't working can be very helpful and will discharge a bunch of discomfort.

Be open to suggestions. When feelings get heated, it can be helpful if another person (family member or friend) gives his or her input. Sometimes a fresh set of ears can hear things others can't.

Create a plan. Having some options you have thought about in advance can be incredibly helpful when strong emotions are flying around the room. For example, you can choose to take a time-out or just remain silent. You can also choose to give the other person some direction.

Don't fake sincerity. If you really don't care, or don't have a good answer, don't pretend that you do, because it will only cause more upset. The best thing to do is to be honest and say that you are just not the right person to help at this time, and perhaps suggest that the other person talk with a professional.


Accept that you might not be able to do anything. Sometimes people just need to feel their hurt for a little while. Allowing them to experience their feelings, along with your emotional support, may be all you need to do.

Remember that silence can be helpful. Many people are uncomfortable in silence, but it generally doesn't last very long, and a thoughtful minute or two can help heal or give you perspective on an emotional trauma.

Don't make the other person feel wrong. We all have emotional moments; they are human and a big part of life. No one is wrong for having feelings.

Emotions are powerful things, and learning how to keep them from going nuclear is a talent that will serve you and your loved ones well.

Baby Boomer Favorites, Christmas Movies - Watch and Enjoy!

* "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) - Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed star in this classic story of what life is really all about during the Christmas Season. Still #1 in my book.

* "Fred Claus" (2007) - How could you not like Santa's brother? Silly movie but fun to watch. Paul Giamatti, Vince Vaughn, Kevin Spacey, Elizabeth Banks, and Kathy Bates pull together a nice finish to a variety of problems at the North Pole.

* "A Christmas Story" (1983) - Another classic. Ralphie's quest to get a BB gun for Christmas. So many great scenes in this film starring Darren McGavin, Melinda Dillon, and Peter Billingsley. The movie is narrated by Ralphie at a later age as he looks back on his comical family life around Christmas time. This is stuff we have all experienced in our own families.

* "The Holiday" (2006) - Nice romantic comedy that develops around Christmas time. Four people (Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black) come together for various reasons to enjoy the Holiday and love wins out.

* "A Christmas Carol" (1984) - This Charles Dickens book has been made and remade as a movie several times and all of them are good because of the terrific story. I personally think the best production involved George C. Scott as "Scrooge". Wonderful moral to this film is good for all ages.

What is Sun Protective Clothing?

You may have heard the term "sun protective clothing" and thought, isn't all clothing sun protective? Simply, the answer to this question is no. All clothing is not created equal when it comes to sun protection.

There are a number of factors that affect the level of ultraviolet protection provided by a fabric. In order of importance these are: weave (tighter is better), color (darker is better), weight (also called mass or cover factor - heavier is better), stretch (less is better) and wetness (dry is better). Recently, the addition of chemicals such as UV absorbers or UV diffusers during the manufacturing process has become another important way to create UV protection in summer fabrics.

Regular summer clothing does not always provide sun protection. In fact, most regular summer clothing provides poor protection against ultraviolet radiation. Many open-weave, light-weight summer fabrics, like those used for t-shirts, provide less UV protection than an SPF 15 sunscreen. In addition, summer clothing - sleeveless blouses, backless sun-dresses, shorts, bikinis, t-shirts are clearly not designed for sun protection. A major goal for sun protective clothing designs is to cover as much skin as possible while still making the garment cool, comfortable and fashionable. Regular summer clothing styles are typically designed to expose skin - arms, neck, shoulders - rather than cover it.

The most comfortable sun protective fabrics are typically sophisticated, technical fabrics that are lightweight, cool and easy to wear. Coolibar, the most recommended and tested sun protective clothing company, has embedded zinc oxide (ZnO), a natural mineral compound with well-established sun protection properties, into the fibers of natural cotton and bamboo to create ZnO SUNTECT® fabric. Coolibar also developed lite SUNTECT® fabric which is light-weight and highly protective because it contains a UV diffuser - titanium dioxide - embedded in the microfibers. Coolibar's aqua SUNTECT® fabric is a knit swim fabric that stretches but contains no lycra so holes do not appear in the fabric as it ages in salt and chlorinated water. The entire portfolio of Coolibar SUNTECT® fabrics provide sophisticated sun protection and is rated to block 98% of harmful UV rays for maximum protection.

Sun protective clothing is economical, environmentally friendly and the most effective way to protect your skin from the harm caused by UVR. Sun protective clothing is also recommended first by both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Dermatology as the most effective means of sun protection. Be sure to use broad spectrum sun screen on any skin left exposed and wear a hat and sunglasses.

It's never too late to protect your skin, and by doing so, you may help prevent skin cancer.

Busy Baby Boomers - Make Time for Exercise

Baby Boomers, I know how hard it can be to fit exercise into a busy lifestyle. Most people work a long day and by the end of the day are too pooped to move. The people that are in shape are the ones that make a date with himself or herself. Another way to insure that they will keep their commitment is to hire a personal trainer that will help them to stay on track and be consistent. It's important to exercise at a set time marked in your calendar. This is one way to make sure it is part of your day, not some afterthought.

If you're a morning person, the best time to workout for you is when you rise and shine.

Have your workout clothes where you can see them. Put them on as soon as you wake up.

Have a protein drink and you're ready to make your health and well being a way of life. What a great investment of your time. Not only will you look and feel great, you'll spend a lot less money on doctor visits and medicine when you make taking care of your health a priority.

If your not a morning person, then afternoon lunch hour or after work will be the best time for you to schedule your workouts. Bring your exercise clothes in a bag and leave it in the car with a bottle of water and a towel. Now you're ready to go the minute you have your lunch hour or when you leave work. If you do it during your lunch break, bring a healthy meal to work to eat while you're working since that hour will be devoted to exercise.

So now that you've determined which time slot works best for you, get your calendar out and schedule it in ink. I suggest doing a cardiovascular workout 3 to 4 times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes if weight loss is a goal. Weight training 2-3 times a week is so beneficial to baby boomers because as we approach our mid to late 40's and 50's, our metabolism slows down substantially. Building muscle will help us to burn fat so that we can drop excess weight and prevent weight from accumulating on our bodies. Also as we age, our bone density decreases. The key is to use our muscles, bones, joints and ligaments and keep them healthy and strong.

Always start with a warm-up such as brisk walking or bicycling to get the muscles warm. After about 5 minutes, stretch out your upper and lower body, your back and gently stretch your neck. Now you are ready to get busy with the weight training. If you do your weight training first, it will use your glycogen for energy. When that energy reserve is used up, it will go to your fat reserve for energy. This is why it is best to do the cardio afterwards.

If you begin with cardio, it takes 20 minutes before your body uses the fat for energy.

Okay, now you know what to do. Get your calendar and mark in pen your workouts every day of the week for the month. Each month, do this again. This habit will make you prioritize your fitness commitment. Try to be consistent and do it the same time each day. These appointments will make your time to exercise a scheduled event and your success will be greater when you plan ahead this way. . . .
