The onset is very gradual with a great deal of denial along the way. I remember receiving AARP information when I turned 55 and asking my parents who had just become octogenarians why they were not members. My mother’s reply was, “That’s just for old people.”

Homemade hummus is worth the effort. This one has thyme leaves and a drizzle of olive oil to top it off.
The one-m humus is a fertilizer, the two-m hummus is an appetizer. Both are a blend of organic ingredients and part of a healthy life style. Both can be bought at a store but are much better made at home. There, the similarities end.
