You might remember Honey from Episode 6 when she talked about what she learned about widowhood. Now, Honey talks her new project – a legacy book for grandparents to leave behind – and about her new network that encourages friendships of all ages.

In this era of #MeToo and of potential presidential candidates being outed for creepy touching…what do we do about the need for human touch? I’m a hugger. But should I stop? I see both sides of touch on Keep it Juicy!
You know how time seems to fly faster the older you get? Well, there’s a scientific reason for that – and there are some pretty easy ways to slow time down, believe it or not. Physicist and engineer Adrian Bejan talks about time and why it seems to race by. Listening to his mind work is fascinating. And the implications for all of us about his study of time? Amazing.
Flip through a magazine or turn on your television. Where are all the older people? Even the few ads that have older people – well, let’s just say they don’t look, act or talk like anyone I know. They’re all obsessed with insurance policies and wrinkles. AARP hired Cindy Gallop for its Disrupt Aging campaign to target ageism in advertising. They couldn’t have picked a better person. Cindy is kind of a legend in the ad world. She’s tart, funny and blunt – ageism doesn’t stand a chance.
You know, the older I get, the more that eating seems like a minefield.

Meet “Juicy” Carrie Morgridge. Carrie’s a philanthropist, and she and her husband recently rode mountain bikes from one end of the Continental Divide to another. You might think it takes loads of money to be a philanthropist – Carrie married into the Cisco Systems family after all – but she didn’t always have money and she talks about how giving has always been a part of her life. I kind of wish I could bottle Carrie’s energy!
