      Philosophy and psychology are separate subjects, of course, but either or both of them may be discussed here. This is not the place for jokes and memes making fun of philosophers or psychiatrists, however, which is not to imply that every post has to be of a serious nature.

    8. Senior Directory Project
      New

      This forum section will be used to discuss an upcoming SENIORSonly CLUB web directory project, which any active member of the forum will be invited, but certainly not compelled, to assist with. In short, my intentions are to operate a Seniors Club Directory on this same domain, albeit separate from the forum itself, in which any member of this forum will be invited to add his or her own listings, whether personal sites or whichever sites are important to them, for whatever reason. In addition, I would add sites that are relevant to baby boomers and seniors in particular, and we can tie it all together. I'll discuss this further in this section of the forum.

    9. Science & Nature
      New

      A fairly wide range of topics might be appropriate for this forum area. These might include the discussion of scientific and technological research involving any of the sciences, including natural sciences, social sciences, applied sciences, and others, except where a more specific topic exists elsewhere in the forum. For example, weather events that are still occurring, or which have just occurred, should be brought up in the existing “In the News” section of the forum, and suggestions as to where to go for leaf peeping in the fall should be made in the “Travel & Vacation” area rather than here, while a discussion of why leaves change color in the fall would be a good fit for this part of the forum. Both the theories of evolution and intelligent design may be discussed here but if you are going to get into the specifics of just which god created the earth, then the “Faith & Religion” section would be a better choice.

    6. Self Employment
      New

      Even as seniors, many of us are unable or unwilling to simply retire. Rather than competing in the job market, we may opt to make use of our skills and experiences to go to work for ourselves, either out of the home or elsewhere. Any discussion of self employment as a senior is appropriate for this part of the forum, whether the reference is to something that you are doing or that you would like to do.

      New

      At the age of fifty or older, some of us have not yet retired and, out of need or desire, we have continued working. Others may have reentered the job market, or are perhaps seeking to do so. These topics may be discussed within this section of the forum. Discussion of jobs that we have held in the past should be made within the "Jobs I Have Had" forum, which can be found within the "I Remember When" category.

    1. Conspiracies & Paranormal
      New

      Governments and media seem to want to tie the words "conspiracy" and "theory" together, indicating that conspiracies cannot be real. Any discussion of conspiracies, whether real, imagined, or still up in the air, may be discussed in this section of the forum. The span of topics that can be included here is wide, including, but not limited to UFOs, global warming and climate change, cryptozoology, crop circles, time travel, and the Lost City of Atlantis.

Also appropriate as a topic in this sub-forum are fuels used to heat our homes or power our cars, trucks, and agricultural equipment.
