Healthy Geezer: The sweet smell of successful aging

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. My six-year-old grandson insists that I smell like an old person. Do you have any idea what he's talking about?

There was a study that suggests people can tell if you are old by how you smell. The study was done at the Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia.

Researchers asked volunteers between the ages of 20 and 95 to sleep in T-shirts with nursing pads sewn into the armpits.

Classical Views: In a word: Midori

Violinist makes the 'curve' from prodigy to solo career

The famous violinist Midori is coming to Allentown to solo with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra and the first question of the day is: Does anyone know her real last name?

Midori has been a remarkable violinist from a very young age. She took the route that is more often used in the rock and pop market of performing under just one name, Midori. For many years, few people knew that her full name is Midori Goto.

Movie Review: Grumpy old 'Grandpa'

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

How funny is "Bad Grandpa'?

Take it from the ticket-seller at the multiplex: "The girl at the concession counter had to use her inhaler three times."

Don't take it from me.

Then again, two movie-goers walked out during the first 30 minutes at a recent matinee of "Bad Grandpa" at that same multiplex.

Don't take it from me.

"Next time, let's go to lunch and forget it when there's a bad movie," said an elderly woman to her two elderly female friends sitting in the row in front of me at the matinee.
