About this blog: I developed a special interest in helping seniors with their challenges and transitions when my dad had a stroke and I helped him through all the various stages of downsizing, packing, moving and finding an assisted living community. I live in Palo Alto with my wife and we have three grown children, one still in college. I have been in the Bay Area since 1977 (except for seven years in Newton MA — just missed all that snow too much.) I've worked in sales and marketing in retirement communities for seven years, and have hired and managed home care workers for family members, and have a pretty good idea of how aging in place, or shopping for and selecting the right retirement community works. I now run my own business, Palo Alto Senior Living, providing real estate and senior transition services. This blog is designed to share my experiences, insight and knowledge with seniors and their baby boomer kids and provide useful information to help develop a roadmap for smooth transitions or aging in place. I welcome readers to share their experiences, both good and not-so-good, in the hope that we all can benefit from each other. (Hide)

Michael Moore (who I for one don't always agree with or follow his logic completely) has executive-produced a new film available to view for free on youtube: Planet of the Humans. In it the close ties between the green environmental climate-change "industry" and Wall Street are discussed. What I got out of it is that we need to reduce our consumption and lesson the need for fuel of any source, be it fossil fuels or green energy such as wind and solar, which are shown consume large amounts of fossil fuels themselves in their production and operation. Al Gore is somewhat dissected as well.
A line from a followup video on youtube where MM, the producer and director are interviewed and defend the movie against criticism from leading environmental groups and leaders speaks to the core issue: The Corona Virus has reduced the amount of total world-wide consumption of virtually everything and CO2 production in a month than the environmental movement has accomplished in decades.
Seach youtube for Planet of the Humans and following that watch Michael Moore, Filmmakers Respond to criticism...
