I just read your sewing
article and it brought a smile to my day. It was as if you were
writing about me. I rarely write people I don't know, but wanted
you to know how much I enjoyed your article. I, too, like to sew
but often my projects do not come out as I dream they should. I
am glad there are others in the world who have some of the same
problems sewing that I do.
I found SeniorWomenWeb
through a Wild Women Who Sew newsletter. Your words are so
true about sewing.
I am a graphic artist by trade but a seamstress and designer wanna-be;
perhaps it's a mid-life crisis. I was especially pleased, - no,
that's not the word I want - joyful, to read your stories. I am
most touched by your writings about your grandmother. My grandmother
raised me and taught me to sew and I wish she was still alive...I
tell my children all the stories about the past she shared with
me: the candy stores, the Polish neighborhoods and all the other
neighborhoods, too. Your remembrances have touched me, too.
I just wanted to say
thank you, and I will continue to visit your website. Thanks again,

I have just found this
neat place for women of our age. I'm new to this computering, but
was delighted to find such a wonderful site. It's like coming home
to understanding friends. Keep up the good work.
You'll have a following
because there is a need out there for we women.
Marge Konz, Kimball,
I enjoyed reading your
article on Hetty
Green. I grew up on stories about her. I'm told she was my great
Aunt, and that my Grandfather was her favorite. When she would visit
she would give him treats, usually a gift of $200. When his parents
would say that she was spoiling him, she would say, "If he's going
to have money, he needs to learn how to handle it."
My grandfather moved
here from Texas with my grandmother. She died recently and I've
been attempting to separate fact from family myth. If you have any
suggestions as to how I can find information from Hetty's children
onward, I would appreciate it.

My husband is from a
Republican family (Take
Five, Politics in the Family), too, and we do not cancel each
other's vote. That is far too important to use as a tool to keep
the conversations lively. We have enough topics nearer home to do
that. In my home where I grew up, the men lead in the religious
area. We had strong churches at that time and I have watched women
take over where men have abdicated in that area.
Women have a strong nesting
instinct and their priorities lie in the home and the good that
can be done there, which is of prime importance. But men share a
broader and more far reaching view. They can visualize things that
don't necessarily contribute to just the home. It takes both views,
and it helps to keep a balance in the order of things. I always
enjoy your writing.
Keep up the good work.
Sincerely, Jean C. Leinweber,

I have enjoyed your
website so much, and have still not had the chance to explore all
of it! Would you know of any websites that deal with financial help
for seniors who would like to return to school and complete a graduate
degree? I am referring mostly to scholarships or grants rather than
I know there is something
out there somewhere, and thought you might be able to help me out.
Thanks so much!

Thank you for this website.
I am 63, still working and am earning my Ph.D. in psychology.
loving and living are still alive and well. Your website shows that,
over and over.
