Learning All the Time

My friend Meryl and I are always looking for something fun to do,  and today we found our activity. The Schieffer Symposium at Texas Christian University always features some of the best journalists in the nation. This year was no exception.  Along with Bob Schieffer commentating there was Fred Barnes from The Weekly Standard,  Clarissa Ward, CBS News Foreign Correspondent,  Nancy Youssef, Middle East Bureau Chief, McClatchy Newspapers and Charlie Rose, Co-host of CBS This Morning and Person to Person.


I have always thought you should learn something every day and today was no exception.  The panel was outstanding, funny and informative.

Below are scenes from the event.

Charlie Rose was the only one that stayed around to talk with the audience. He was amazing.

My coworker Meryl and I had a wonderful time.  Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
