10 things I am tired of reading about

Newspapers, magazines, NPR, newsapps, newsletters - it feels like I am seeing the same-old, same-old stories repeated with absolutely no new content. These include:
  1. How and how much to save for retirement
  2. How to lose weight
  3. How to prevent dementia
  4. Trump's misdeeds and congressional ineptitude (actually politics in general)
  5. Climate change
  6. How to eat healthy and how much to exercise
  7. How to protect one's online privacy
  8. How to prevent dementia by exercising (Or did I mention that one already?)
  9. How to save money when shopping
  10. How not to get scammed

I supposed editors feel the need to go with those areas of great interest, but, please, how about at least a little twist on the topic?

Beginning to think I need to rename the blog "Old Fart Ramblings." The stress of retirement is getting to me.

Ouch!
