Re: Walkable Neighborhoods Help Older Men Avoid Depression

Re: Walkable Neighborhoods Help Older Men Avoid Depression

We live half a block from a beautiful park where dogs romp, the neighbors play ball, and we are shortly starting a city farm where I can plant 150 sq feet of vegetables for $20 a year. Doctors, dentists, hair salons, groceries, restaurants, library, museums, etc. all within walking distance. Two blocks from the Baltimore harbor.

Re: Walkable Neighborhoods Help Older Men Avoid Depression

I would love to find a retirement house within a few blocks of a grocery store, in a neighborhood with plenty of walking paths. Sounds idyllic.

I stumbled across it online at http://dayclocks.com/

Looks to me to be the perfect retirement gift. I think Nords gave it to his in-laws as a going away present when they fled HI.
