Turning The Big 60



Wow! It just didn't feel like anything.
What's up with that? I mean, it really didn't "feel" like anything at all. I'm beginning to believe 60 is, indeed, the new 40!
Here's a great link to Readers Digest where 50 Celebs were interviewed and share what they learned by Andrew Zuckerman, author of "Wisdom".
Okay, any of you remember these people who are turning 60 this year of 2008?
(Remember, the oldest real Boomers will be turning 64 this year!)
