With holiday parties fast approaching, panic can set in when we think about what to wear.

The waiting for the meeting to start was twice as long as the meeting itself. It seems that after the elections and politicking are over, the public sessions will be shorter; in tonight’s case 25 minutes. Supposed to start at 7:45, the dozen or so attendees had to wait until 8:30 for the Mayor and Council meeting to begin. It would have been a little easier to wait if there was an operating water fountain on the Council Chamber level.

“There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers”.
- Rosalyn Carter
More than 65 million people, or 29% of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year according to a 2009 report by the National Alliance for Caregiving in collaboration with AARP. These family caregivers spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care for their loved one, and as the aging population continues to grow, these numbers will continue to rise.
