Reaching the forties with joy….

Just think about it… about 100 years ago most people didn’t get past their mid-forties at all! Today the 40s it’s the new 30s, and this means a lot of new opportunities. And I must admit it. I´ve never felt more in shape than during the latest years! Last Tuesday I became a member of…

A visit of the barefoot trimmer in the heat
