Why Independent Senior Living is awesome

November 24th, 2014

HOME OWNERSHIP ISSUES ELIMINATED. Taking care of a yard, keeping a house clean and handling maintenance can become difficult to handle. For others, the obligations of home ownership do not match with a retirement lifestyle. By choosing independent senior living, the many responsibilities that go along with home ownership are permanently shelved.

PHYSICAL, SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. Most complexes offering independent senior living schedule a variety of physical and social activities for the health and wellbeing of residents. The National Institutes of Health says moderate activity in retirement can actually improve the health and lengthen the lifespan of seniors.

CAMARADERIE. Senior independent living also guarantees that you’ll be surrounded with people who share many of the same interests as you.

But only at NoHo Senior Arts Colony, can you be surrounded with likeminded people your age plus be in a very creative atmosphere. It’s a truly unique and fulfilling experience living here.

Route 66: The Road and the Romance

November 4th, 2014

Discover the facts and the fiction surrounding the Mother Road through more than 250 extraordinary artifacts that trace the history of the route and its impact on American popular culture.

Catch this exciting new exhibition on Route 66 at The Autry’s George Montgomery Gallery until January 4, 2015. Connecting Chicago to Los Angeles, the 2,400-mile-long highway was a witness to history and a symbol for America on the move. Route 66: The Road and the Romance travels the iconic road from its inception in 1926 through the drama of the Great Depression to its heyday as a travel destination and the route’s eventual displacement by the Interstate Highway System. The exhibition concludes with a contemporary look at the road and the movement for its preservation.

Route 66 presents historical artifacts from institutions and private collections across the United States, many never before displayed together. See the oldest existing Route 66 shield, an early Jackson Pollock landscape painting, a ten-foot twin visible gas pump, the handwritten page from The Grapes of Wrathmanuscript that introduces the “Mother Road,” renowned Dust Bowl–era photographs, Woody Guthrie’s guitar, the original typewritten scroll of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, a classic 1960 Corvette, and countless objects adorned with the Route 66 moniker or acquired along the route.
