Endorsements for 50/40

Dear Friends,

The book is going to the printer this Friday! We are very excited. Meanwhile, our wonderful publisher has collected some awesome endorsements for us. Check them out:

"Good, juicy, inspiring words and ways to live as a gloriously aging soul."
--- SARK author and artist of Fabulous Friendship Festival

What a treasure trove! 50 Ways To Leave Your Forties is a joyful, irreverent (and at the same time, very reverent) enthusiastic, and incredibly informative book. The authors present their suggestions for zestful and meaningful living in wonderfully inviting ways. I loved it!

--Sue Patton Thoele, author of Freedoms After 50, The Courage To Be Yourself, and The Mindful Woman

"So far, the statistics are convincing: everyone ages. How we age, however, is largely a choice. In 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR 40s, Sheila Key and Dr. Peggy Spencer serve up a delectable recipe for healthy aging that is both delicious and joyful."

--Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

Dipping into this treasure trove of a book makes me want to go back in time so I can leave my 40s again. 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR 40s offers so many creative ideas, so much thoughtful information and is so darn much fun, I’m sure I’d do it more gracefully, heathfully, and happily the second time. Congratulations and thanks to Sheila Key and Peggy Spencer for giving all of us a life-affirming map to follow no matter what our age.

-- Judy Reeves, author of A Writer’s Book of Days

“Sheila Key and Peggy Spencer know that a new decade of life is the beginning,
not the end, of something great. With generous helpings of wisdom and wit, 50Ways to Leave Your 40s is a recipe for joy during what comes next.”

— David Niven, PhD, author of The 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People and The 100 Simple Secrets of the Best Half of Life

I want to ask a question. My daughter was in a science class in which they studied blood. She pricked her finger and put the blood on a slide and viewed it under a microscope as well as viewing the blood of two other children. If the prick was made by a sterile single use diabetic lancet and her blood did not touch the blood of another child what are her odds of getting a disease such as aids? Is there any way of obtaining those statistics?

If the lancet was sterile and only used once, she has no chance of getting disease from it. If her lanced finger did not touch anyone else's blood, she could not have gotten blood borne diseases like AIDS from them.

If you want statistics on AIDS, try the CDC website.
