We've still got it going on...
When I first spotted 'Doris', who features in our lovely logo (above), I couldn't help but make her our poster girl for The Association of Retired Single Women... She's energetic, she's going places, she looks like she has a whole 'bucket-list' of things that she can't wait to be, do and have in life and she has a big smile on her face!
That's what I want for you too - whether you're an 'always single' woman or, like me, you're 'single again'. I want you to have the happiest, healthiest, most vital, productive, energetic, prosperous and fulfilling retirement you could possibly have! At the same time, I want you to get the resources you need to help you balance having the kind of retirement you want and deserve to have, with planning to meet your future needs. That's what The Association of Retired Single Women is all about -

The Association now has a chat room! I'm not sure how well it works - because I was the only member online when I set it up, but feel free to check it out if you're on the site at the same time as one (or more) of our other members. Let me know how you get on... and if you see me around here, please be sure to say "hi".

1. What am I excited about?
2. What am I grateful for today?
3. What am I committed to making happen today?

Hi All, I'm Ronnie and have just joined. I'm 61 and am in the last months of my work life. I retire January 1st. All my stuff for retirement is in place and I'm just running down the clock now. As ready as I am, I'm finding myself with a terrible case of nerves. Having a terrible time envisioning how I am going to fill 40-50 hours a week. How do I keep daily, fulfilling, face to face contact with the human race? Social life has been "built-in" since I was 15 years old and took my first job.…Continue

Get snapping to clear clutter
You're either going to love or hate this idea, but... If you're short of storage space or you're having a clear-out, have you ever considered taking digital photos of items that have nostalgic or sentimental value for you? The photo will still evoke the memories but will take up…Continue
Warning signs for older drivers
Have you started to worry about an aging relative's safety as a driver? Although the majority of older drivers are safe drivers, the combination of medical conditions, use of medication and reduced physical function can increase the risk of accidents and injury among older…Continue
Release your inner entrepreneur
It wasn't until I left my job, seven years ago, that I realised that I had a hitherto hidden entrepreneurial streak that now makes me wonder how I could have ever been comfortable working for someone else. If retirement (or the gloom and doom surrounding the economy) is…Continue
Do you hate packing?
Here in the UK, the holiday season starts with a vengeance this weekend. From today the roads, motorways and airports will be packed with people desperately trying to escape the unseasonably wet weather that we are experiencing here at the moment.
Of course, people who are…
