    I am from Hong Kong and aged 67. I came on to this webpage accidentally and found the website worthwhile and useful for senior citizens. Unfortunately there is no website of this nature here in HK where Chinese is the dialect. Thru reading a number of websites on positive aging, I am embarking on a course to practise positive aging. In HK there are info about this topic from both Chinese and English channels. I have earmarked this page and surely will look to this website for comments related to senior people. Good work.

    Hello Henry,

    We hope you will spread the word about this site to your friends in Hong Kong. We’d love to hear your stories.

    How does our book, 70Candles! Women Thriving in Their 8th Decade, resonate with those who can read English?
    Are there similar issues of concern? Similar hopes and pursuits?

    You can find the book at

    We hope you, and they, will let us know.

    Jane and Ellen
