A story of hope for the Golden Agers! We can still live a life of joy, fulfillment, and wealth. I am doing my part as a Life(Career-After-Retirement-Empowerment) CARE coach. We have an opportunity to contribute our gifts and talents as we 'play' this game called life, until we take our last breath. Are we having fun yet? Thank you Quizz folks.

No, wrong man, don’t you remember Dave, who did a lot of commercials for adoption because he was adopted. He named his restaurants after his daughter, Wendy. Google it. He lived long after colonel Sanders died. Heather Holman,

Used to love their savoury rice when it first came out. Why they changed that I don't know. Very interesting info about the Colonel. I wonder if his wife and daughter eat his chicken? They don't even deserve a sniff!

I was on a flight from Birmingham AL to Atlanta GA many years ago. The colonel was waiting in the airport and escorted to his first class seat before general boarding. It was a short flight, sunny and clear when we left Birmingham. Along the way, the plane flew over a rainbow, true story. And the "pot of gold" was sitting in first class ( the colonel, of course).

KFC use to have the best green beans, until they changed that recipe too. Now they suck.

He became whatever he became, much to the suffering and premature death of millions of chickens.
