A Sweet Life


Many claim they are leaving a legacy, yet Henry Kapono Ka‘aihue lives his every day, instilling pure aloha into everything he does. In his alleged “Golden Years,” when most are retired or slowing down, this remarkable music man has no intention of doing any of that any time soon. “I get to pick up my guitar and play every day — play for people and I stay happy,” says the Grammy-nominated Hawai‘i singer/songwriter. “I think retirement sometimes takes the ‘oomph’ out of life. What now, unless, you have a solid Plan B? I love staying in Plan A. It’s working.”

Social Security Benefits Increase in 2023

More than 65 million Social Security recipients in the US are seeing an 8.7 percent increase in their social security checks this month. You can thank COLA for the increase – that’s not a soft drink, that’s the most recent cost of living adjustment. 





We Love Valentine's Day

In this issue, we take a look at friendship, senior romances and chocolate in three separate stories. Debra Lordan takes us to Valley Isle Chocolates on Maui that is fulfilling many Valentine’s Day wishes. You’ll read about senior dating with a story that warms the heart. Debra also gives us the lowdown on how playing cards at McDonald’s can lead to romance.

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

I like to think of myself as a realist. I know we are all going to die and that 75 is actually not the new 50. Sorry to disappoint you. It ends up that 75 is really more like — wait for it — the old 74. What is also true is that time does fly by when you’re having fun!
