time on their side

When The Rolling Stones first sang “This could be the last time” in 1965, they were remarkably prescient to add, “Maybe the last time, I don’t kno-ow.” They’ve just hit the big stadium circuit again after a short break for Sir Mick Jagger’s heart surgery. He’s 75, and is still as much the jumpin’ Jack Flash that he was in his twenties. And so, apparently, are many in his cohort. Emulating their rocker heroes, baby boomers are refusing to retire sedately. Just look at how hardcore veteran sports events have become. It’s probably not surprising that better healthcare, living standards, exercise, self-care knowledge and pension providence mean the over-sixties increasingly reject traditional patterns of ageing.

quips & quotes

“Last night, I shared a glass of champagne with Ava Gardner. She threw it, I wore it.” – US reporter Steve Dunleavy“There are more stars in the observable universe than grains of sand on Earth, trillions upon trillions – enough to name a galaxy for every human who ever did or will live and every god or goblin proposed by human imagination.” – science writer Dennis Overbye in the New York Times“Have you seen the price of child care? I reckon a nanny state would be a great idea.” – Australian musician David McCormack“Weekends are a bit like rainbows – they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.” – US writer John Shirley“Friendship is like a bank account: you cannot continue to draw…
