Finance Friday: The Penny Whistle

As we grow older and into the retirement years, learning a language and/or learning to play a new musical instrument is one way to keep our mental activity sharp. Not to mention it’s fun. And activities like these may diminish the risk of dementia and other cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s.

And by the way, if you want to hear someone really play the whistle well, type “Joannie Madden” into your favorite search engine. Joannie is amazing; if you ever have the chance to hear her band (Cherish the Ladies), you must go!!
