Friday, May 09, 2008Open Phones Host(s): Char Binkley

Gas prices can alter life as we attempt to find ways to drive less. Longer trips give way to finding enjoyment closer to home. Perhaps there is more cooking at home and less eating out which causes us to be more selective in our restaurant choices. Char opens phone lines so you can share what restaurants you frequent for most enjoyment when dining away from home. Old favorites or new - Char wants to hear all about them.

Friday, April 25, 2008Dupont Resource Center Host(s): Char Binkley

In 1900 the average life span was 47 years. Only one out of 25 adults lived beyond age 65. Today age 65 is no longer considered "old" and most everyone reaches their 65th birthday.
