The KIT News/Talk radio listening audience is fairly typical of conservative talk listeners everywhere. I mean yes, you ARE special to us! But, like most conservative talk listeners, you are old enough to have gained the wisdom to see and appreciate the value of conservative principles and ideals.

MARRIAGE ON THE RISE FOR OVER 65s
Just because you are over 65 and divorced, it doesn't mean your relationship life is over too! Hope is not just the providence of youth. A new report shows a significant boost in what some modern slang-sters call “silver splitters” getting remarried.
Society observers say that dating apps may be behind this trend. A check of trends indicates that while marriage has generally been on the decline for those in the younger age bracket, tying the knot has increased significantly for those 65 and older since 2009.

Researchers found that women shed around half an inch per decade from age 30 on! They say that has serious repercussions for women's health as those who suffered the most height loss were twice as likely to die of heart disease.
