It’s hard to believe that we are nearly at the end of the first quarter for 2012. Autumn has arrived and we are heading at a rapid pace into winter. With this in mind, we decided to get the opinion of an expert on the flu vaccine, and how effective it is.

If you enjoy travel extravaganzas, live in the Western Cape, and are already a YEI subscriber, you could get lucky! Getaway are offering 2 x double tickets to the Getaway Show, which is taking place on the weekend of the 23-25 March. If you are not a YEI subscriber, and would like to stand a chance to win of these double tickets, then please register on the YEI website as soon as possible.

In our articles this month, we have a story about a YEI subscriber who became passionate about a business idea. We find out why some of our subscribers love their Kindle – something we should have taken on our trip to Mazeppa Bay on the Wild Coast. We also share a story about a couple who have turned their retirement move to Hermanus into the most thrilling and fulfilling year of their lives.

And while you’re about it – check out our new advertisers. On that note, do you have a business that is of interest to boomers, seniors and retirees?
