Heart & Soul: Smarter than we think

Pretty much everything we “know,” we were taught growing up. Maybe we were taught that children should be seen and not heard, or that big boys don’t cry, or girls are supposed to play with dolls and not trucks. And that we should wait to have a child until we are married, to a member of the opposite sex.

We might also have been taught who and what God is — maybe the old concept of a white, straight, cranky, judgmental old man out there on a cloud somewhere, waiting to zap us if we journey off the straight and narrow path, no pun intended.

The most gay-friendly retirement cities in the U.S.

Let's face it, when we try to figure out the best place for our retirement, we usually want to find people of like minds. If you are a liberal Democrat who has frequently donated to the ACLU, you probably aren't going to want to retire in Reagan Country. Or, if you have a Fox News coffee mug on your desk, you probably won't want to retire in Berkeley, California. Whoever we are, we want to live in a place where we can connect with our neighbors.
