Celebrating Autumn,

Thanksgiving & Halloween!

This month I am thankful for the fire as it

gets chilly, the friends and calm that remains

as the busy of summer ends, the

colours of the rainbow that appear on

the earth all around us for autumn and

everyone reading Discover 65!

October is time for everything to slow

down! The harvests are finishing up, the

days are getting noticeably shorter and

a mild chill is starting to emanate in the

air. Whether you took good care of your

garden through the hot,




dry summer or not, it's time

for the plants to go dormant and get

ready for the coming blankets of snow!

If you haven't already thought ahead

its time to get firewood. The spirit of

Thanksgiving & Halloween is very strong

in our communities and we hope you

all enjoy celebrating the season with

friends and family. Happy Fall!

Recently I had the

pleasure of meeting

Bruce and

Wendy Lacroix.

Bruce had just

emailed me with an

idea for a column in the Discover Sixty-Five.

It was an interesting idea that

I had not heard explored previously. I

thought you, our readers, would like it.

Bruce said he would drop by to discuss

his idea, and he also brought along his

partner. After a bit of chatter I learned

his wife’s name is spelt Lacroix - and

the penny dropped. Wendy has been

submitting articles since February. She

writes about all the aspects of setting

“Your Retirement Path” from maintaining

a healthy relationship with your

partner - now that you have so much

time together - to how to downsize

your home as you prepare for a simpler

life. I enjoyed meeting them and

thought you would too.

D65: Wendy, are you a Kootenay Girl?

Wendy: No, I was born in Ottawa,

Ontario, the youngest daughter of

two daughters. I lived there until

I was 19. I then went to college in

North Bay, studying Environmental

Sciences and Lab Technology.

D65: Do you have children?

Embracing Time and Opportunity ~ Karma Halleran

Wendy: Yes we do, two girls – Melanie,

32, works for West Kootenay

Rural Teacher Education Program in

Nelson. She is also a certified Nutrition

and Fitness coach, and coaches

part time. Her husband is a teacher at

Mt. Sentinel. Our other daughter, Angela,

has her own business. She studied

the Digital Media course at Selkirk

College, and now works for Nelson

Becker on the ExpressNews, along

with other freelance design projects,

for the city and other businesses. She

loves working from home.

D65: You have been writing articles

for Discovery Sixty-Five for months

now, about being prepared for retirement.

Your business name is

‘Your Retirement Path’ and you raise

questions (and answer them) about

such things as Planning for retirement,

Living with someone 24/7 -

which may not have been the case

when you were both working, How

to meet other’s expectations of your

retirement, and more. You often run

workshops to explore these questions

more deeply. Have you done

this work your whole life?

Wendy: No. I have had a number of

different careers; lab tech in the environment

field, ski instructor, daycare

owner, restaurant manager at Fairmont

Hot Springs, Bruce and I had a

training school in Nelson called Kootenay

Career Directions Inc., which

we ran for 5 years. The focus was to

help income assistance and EI candidates

acquire the skills necessary

to be successful in the workforce.

We mixed in a number of life skills as

well. I taught career and employment

skills, plus tourism courses, Bruce

focused on entrepreneurship, and

our partner Becky taught computer

skills. After the school closed down I

returned to school to get my TESOL,

to teach English, and

went to China for four

months to teach English

and customer service

skills. When I came back

from China in 2008, I was

then offered a position at

KCDS as an Employment

Counsellor. I worked

there as a job coach with

the Wage Subsidy Program

for 17 years. I went

back to school again (I

love learning) and trained as a counsellor.

When that course finished I

looked around Nelson and realized

there were already a large number

of traditional counsellors available,

so decided to specialize in preparing

for retirement. As much as I help

others, it has made me acknowledge

the coming challenges of retirement

as well. My workshops have an outline,

that is fluid, allowing movement

in the direction the class determines.

We become a group working together

to learn new skills and to prepare

ourselves for retirement. I receive as

much as I give to my attendees, for

which I am grateful.

D65: What have you discovered in

this process?:

Wendy: We enjoy life to the fullest.

We want to stay fit right into our senior

years. That is why we bike, swim,

ski, kayak and Bruce plays pickleball

as well. I cannot imagine coming to a

full stop, by choice.

Which leads us to the other half of

this team.

My office on the Beach in Cuba ~ Bruce


October 2022 Discover Sixty-Five email: seniors@pennywiseads.com

ack east?

D65: Bruce,

have you always

lived in

the Kootenays?

Bruce: No,

I was Halifax



and Ottawa


D65: Did you

meet Wendy

Bruce: Yes, at the Delta Inn of the

Provinces near Parliament Hill. I was

a Wine Stewart, she was serving - she

bounced into the room and I was

mesmerized. We have been a team

ever since.

D65: How did you come to live in


Bruce: We discovered the Kootenays

together. First East, then West.

In the late 80’s after we left school

in Edmonton we spent some time

in Kimberley, I was the Tennis instructor

there. We then moved on to

Fairmont Hot Springs Resort where

I was the Recreation Director and

Wendy managed a restaurant. While

working there, we came to Nelson

to visit a friend overnight. We never

forgot the place. Young and yearning

for adventure, with not too many

responsibilities - childless at that

point, we sold everything and went

to Europe to ski. Unfortunately it was

a snowless season that year… and

we soon found ourselves living in a

beach house in Portugal. Poor us - no

snow :)

D65: Why did you ever leave?

Bruce: We decided that we were

ready for kids and while considering

where we would do that, Wendy

suggested Nelson, the beautiful

small city we remembered fondly.

D65: You have had a variety of professions,

when did writing take centre


Bruce: Actually writing has been a

small part of my life, but I have done

alot of it. I love it.

D65: What is your most memorable

writing project?

Bruce: In writing: While on a long

solo dive vacation in Cuba, I completed

the 300 page Business and

Entrepreneurship Skills Training

(BEST) Manual, since used by over

four thousand entrepreneurs, and

some colleges and universities

across Canada. Daily, it was rise, scuba,

breakfast, scuba, lunch, write, dinner,

mojitos at sunset, write, repeat!

With side trips to Havana by scooter.

That was a dream job.

D65: That sounds amazing! It seems

you have often been involved in

guiding people towards success as

entrepreneurs. Why does this subject

interest you so much?

Bruce: I was always a terrible employee

working for others. Fired from

most jobs, not due to lack of professionalism

or work ethic, just that I always

told employers that there was a

better way of doing things. So, best

to work for myself. I love teaching,

interacting with others, and helping

them realize that working for oneself

can be a reality.

D65: You are starting a column with

us this month about Senior Entrepreneurship,

being on the rise. It seems

to me that you follow each others


Bruce: As a couple, we have never

lived to work. It took me a while

when I first met Wendy some 40

plus years ago to convince her that

life was not all about careers, work,

money, getting ahead, but enjoying

the moment and living well. We

were never flush with money (actually

down to 28 cents and stealing

firewood at one time), but there was

healthy food on the table and a roof

over our heads. We survived that period,

with humour and gratitude for

what we did have. Having experiences,

raising two healthy, well-adjusted

daughters and travelling extensively

with them was important to us. Now,

we bounce ideas off each other, plan

our next trip, and share our knowledge

with others.

D65: What are your favourite things

to do together?

Bruce: Well... we enjoy all the outdoor

experiences we are so blessed

to have right outside our door. We

entertain. I can cook and know my

wines. We have been known to share

our home-grown herb and dance in

our living room during the winter

together. Living the Hygge lifestyle,

embracing time and opportunity.

My Retirement Travels ~ Liz Ross

In this edition, I will write

about two of my favourite

places that I visited in

South America. In 2010, two

friends and I booked a Peregrine

trip to the Galapagos,

Equador and Machu Picchu,

Peru. We flew from Quito to

Baltra where we boarded a

yacht visiting Turtle Cove, a

nesting site for Pacific Green

Turtles. Next we sailed to the

red sand beaches of Rabida

Island where sea lions abound

and we had an opportunity

to snorkel, then to Santiago

Island, a breeding ground for

marine iguanas and fur seals.

We visited Bartolome Island

next which has a lunar-like

landscape with pahoehoe

lava and gigantic lava tubes,

evidence of it’s volcanic past.

We ended our trip at the

Charles Darwin Research

Station on Santa Cruz Island

where endangered tortoises

from every Island are housed

until mature enough to be

reinserted in their island of


Next we flew to Lima Peru and

on to the ancient Inca capital

of Cusco travelling from

sea level up to 3350 metres.

We visited the Sacred Valley

located between the towns

of Pisac and Ollantaytambo

where we saw evidence

of the Inca’s engineering

skills in the ruins of ancient

terraces, temples and fortresses.

Next we boarded a

train and then the bus up to

Machu Picchu, the Lost City

of the Incas. Built in 1450 and

deserted less than a century

later following the Spanish

invasion, it was only rediscovered

again in 1911.

The architecture of Machu

Picchu is extraordinary with

the earthquake resistant mortarfree

design and stones so

precisely cut that not even a

knife fits between them.

Senior-Preneurship ~ Bruce LaCroix

Bruce Lacroix is joining D65 as a regular columnist, sharing his ideas and experience surrounding

Senior-Preneurship. Bruce's writing history includes past regular columns for:

Sterling Press (Nelson Daily News, Cranbrook Townsman): Practicing Business,

Kootenay Weekly Express: Bruce On Business,

B.C. Home Business Report: Report From The Kootenays,

Kootenay Business Magazine and Articles in Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun

We think you'll enjoy what he has to say.

Welcome to a regular feature on

Entrepreneurship for those past middle

age considering starting a small

business, or turning a hobby into a

money-maker. Over the past 30 years,

my companies (The Canadian Centre

for the Aboriginal Entrepreneurship,

Inc. and The Canadian Centre for

Ageless Entrepreneurship, Inc.) have

assisted about six thousand people

across Canada and the Caribbean

get started.

At 69 years old, I now relate best with

my age-peers. Using stories, quotes,

interviews and how-to hints and tips,

I would like to share with you the opportunities,

advantages (and disadvantages)

and steps of starting your

own senior-preneurship at this stage

of our lives.

According to Stats Canada: Average

HEALTHY life expectancy (mentally

and physically “able”) is now into

Investing Ups & Downs

As fall and uncertainty of the weather

to come approaches so does the

continued feeling of uncertainty for

investors. Bouts of volatility in the

markets is unnerving, but normal in

long term investing.

They're not fun, but you can expect

to see market declines periodically

throughout your investing career.

Yet it's hard to sit still when the

market is sliding. You can’t help but

think: "Shouldn't I be doing something?"

Every investor is different,

but here are a few steps that everyone

should consider.

During market volatility:

1. Resist the urge to sell based solely

on recent market movements. Selling

equities when markets drop can

make temporary losses permanent.

Staying the course, while difficult

emotionally, may be healthier for

your portfolio. This doesn't mean

you should hold on blindly, but

I suggest considering an investment's

future prospects and the

role it plays in your portfolio, rather

than being guided by noise and


2. Take the long view. Markets typically

go up and down, and you're

likely to experience several significant

declines during a long investing

career. But even bear markets—

that is, periods when the market

fell by more than 20%—historically

have been relatively short when

compared to bull markets. Because

timing the market's ups and downs

is nearly impossible, but all investors

would do well to ignore the noise

and stay focused on their plans.

Review your risk tolerance and

your risk capacity

Risk tolerance is your ability to emotionally

handle big price swings; risk

capacity is your financial ability to

take a loss. Market downturns can

be a wake-up call to reconsider your

risk tolerance, although we recommend

waiting until you're calm!

Risk capacity, however, can—and

should—be considered at any time.

Do you have enough cash to handle

near-term goals? Money that

you’ll need soon or that you can’t

afford to lose shouldn't be in the

stock market—it's best invested in

relatively stable assets, such as cash,

money market funds, GIC’s or Treasury

bills. If you're retired, having

your next 12 months of living expenses

in a bank account or money

market fund—and a few more

years' worth in a conservative liquid

investment—can help you stay

calm when stock markets are not.

Make sure you have a diversified


Volatile markets also can reveal that

portfolios their owner’s thought

were appropriately diversified in

fact aren't. If you haven't looked

at your portfolio recently to make

sure you understand what each asset

class is doing and that the mix

matches your target asset allocation,

now is a good time to become

reacquainted with it. All firms have

an investor profile questionnaire

that can help you determine your

profile and match it to an appropriate

target asset allocation.

Can you relate?

“Lying awake

trying not to

overthink that

I’m lying awake

and not asleep.”

Sleep is so paramount to our

health. Imbalanced sleep is often

the very first symptom we work

on when restoring health and

wellness. Did you know that we

do much of our healing at night,

while we are supposed to be

asleep? Each sleep stage plays an

essential role in maintaining mental

and physical health.

But what if you are not actually

sleeping, your sleep is interrupted,

you experience insomnia or you’re

kept awake by pain? Healthy sleep

habits are great tools to get closer to

a good night's sleep, here’s a few:

• dim the lights in the evening

• keep the bedroom cool

• turn off the news

• limit blue light

Cannabis for Sleep

• put worry and problem solving on

hold until the morning

What about adding cannabis to your

healthy sleep habits? There are a

growing number of studies showing

that integrating THC and/or CBD into

a sleep routine helps people get a

good night's sleep.

While THC promotes sleep and reduces

the time it takes to fall asleep, it can

also cause morning drowsiness, and

at higher doses, especially for vulnerable

patients, it can cause panic and

anxiety, making insomnia worse. It’s

important to start with small doses

(1-2.5 mg THC). Similarly, CBD at higher

doses promotes deep sleep, while

CBD at lower doses promotes wakefulness

and therefore compensates

for THC's sedating effects. Also start

with small doses (2-5mg CBD) and

slowly increase.

As everyone is different in their response

to cannabis, you may need to

experiment with THC and CBD to find

the correct ratio for you. Your method

of intake is personalized to you as

well. Inhaling will activate quickly and

also taper off within a couple hours.

A sublingual oil activates within 15-

40 min and lasts 2-4 hrs. Edibles activate

within 1-3 hrs and last 6-8 hrs.

In order to fall asleep soundly and

sleep through the night, fat-based infusions

taken 1 hour before bed, may

be your best bet. Slowly increase your

dose till you reach your desired results

without unpleasant side effects.

Consistency is important to start to

see improvements.

Getting a good night's sleep was the

first reason I reached for cannabis

about 12 years ago. I was diagnosed

with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and

was not getting restful sleep at night.

I was fatigued and exhausted all day

and then insomnia would hit at night.

My body was all out of sorts! I couldn’t

get restful and rejuvenating sleep

and started napping 2-3 hrs a day -

with four kids running around the

house. I had to find a better solution!

That’s when cannabis came to help. I

started with inhaling a gentle indica

strain with terpenes high in myrcene

and about 17-20% THC. A

few puffs before bedtime

brought a calm, relaxation

to my body and mind and

gave my body permission

to relax, rest and fall asleep.


Since then, my body has

changed, my aches and

pains have changed, my

stress has changed and my

cannabis routine needs to

change too. I now work

with different methods of

intake including oils and

edibles. I also work with

different ratios of THC to

Fun Facts

The Alpine Larch

The Alpine Larch lives at high elevations

in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho,

Montana, British Columbia, and

Alberta. The Alpine Larch is a hardy

tree, often found in the most inhospitable,

rocky spots in north-facing

basins buried by snow much of

the year. It is also the smallest type

of larch, growing from 30-70 ft tall,

and shorter at higher elevations.

The branches of the Alpine Larch

are horizontal to the trunk, irregularly spaced and twisted

by the snow, ice, and winds of its extreme habitats.

(The Western Larch, by contrast, grows straight and tall,

sometimes reaching 200 ft.) The needles of the Alpine

Larch are about 1 inch long and crowded in groups of


Larch is one of only two deciduous conifers in North

America. It has needles on what look like typical evergreen

trunks and branches, but like a leafy tree, it drops

its needles in the fall. The needles of the Alpine Larch are

pale blue-green in the summer, but turn a spectacular

golden yellow in the autumn before they fall off for the

winter. Usually, the trees begin turning golden in late

September, reach their peak brightness in mid-October,

and fall off by the winds and storms of November.

The alpine spectacle that larches create in October is so

compelling that many hikers plan annual trips to trails

known for the trees. The larch is a fire-resistant species

that could play an important role as national forest managers

attempt to restore the health of forests across the

West. Amazingly, these trees may live in excess of 1000

years. Larch is reminding us to rest and recover. Its appearance

indicates a time of connection and rejuvenation

by seeing with our heart.

My Downsize Adventure ~ Wendy LaCroix

Recently my husband and I downsized

from our 4 bedroom, 3 storey

home in Nelson to a small 3 bedroom

modular home into a 55+ community

close to Balfour. Little did we know at

the time, just how much work was involved

in this. We had 32 years full of

memories, old books, furniture, dishes,

furniture, ski equipment, a mink

stole, and two wedding dresses.

There are so many chapters to this

adventure, including the pros and

cons of getting your house ready to

sell, and the choices between; selling

your house, renting it, renting for the

long term, and buying a condo. The

part that consumed me the most was

the purging of my possessions.

My house was filled with things including

several book shelves of books,

and they had to be sorted into keep

or donate. Then my closet had to be

sorted out into piles: keep, recycle

and garbage. The next was the basement

where I kept a variety of boxes

of photos, resaleable items for the local

garage sale, and items to give to

my family. I quickly realized that selling

them on

Facebook was

not an easy

task, especially

beds, older

style furniture

and assorted

dishes. Local

charities such

as your local

churches will

take a huge

variety of

items, if they

are having a

garage sale.

Used clothing

and bookstores will take a number of

items, but you need to call first to see

if they are taking donations. I ended

up giving a number of furniture items

to my two kids, and some of my items

unfortunately ended up in the recycle

and garbage bins.

If you are looking to declutter, or

downsize in the next couple of years,

start now to organize your items and

where they will go. Next issue will

cover tips on how to declutter and

organize your possessions.

Detoxification for Fall

Autumn season is upon us as the

body naturally undergoes detoxification.

The liver is the main organ

of detoxification in the body and

has three phases of detoxification. A

healthy gut microbiome, meaning

healthy bacteria throughout your

digestive tract is imperative to liver

health and proper detoxification.

This must always be considered first

and foremost before any detoxification:

probiotics can be one of the

most important pillars of detoxification.

Alongside this, bitter foods,

dark green vegetables, enough fiber

(20g/day!), berries, lots of water with

fresh lemon, bone broths alongside

enough magnesium, B-vitamins and

some milk thistle seeds are other

important components to making

sure the liver is properly functioning.

Sulphur is the additional key component

in the detoxification process

and can be found in garlic, cruciferous

vegetables (broccoli, kale, cabbage)

and the sulphur hot springs!

Fermented foods such as sauerkraut,

kombucha or kimchi are required to

support a healthy bacterial flora.

The next important aspect of the

Autumn season, especially for the

elderly, is the importance of supplementing

with vitamin D. Vitamin D

acts as a hormone in the body - not

just a vitamin - and it is required for

many aspects

of health: most

notably the health of the immune

system, the bones, and mental sphere

- helping to prevent seasonal affective

disorder. A reminder that Vitamin

D is a fat-soluble vitamin meaning

you can take too

much and it can

become toxic to

the body so it's

vitamin D intake

broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve

a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill

each row, column and box. Each number

can appear only once in each row, column

and box. You can figure out the order in

which the numbers will appear by using the

numeric clues already provided in the boxes.

The more numbers you name, the easier it

gets to solve!

October Horoscope

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20

1st Week: Aries, others are

counting on you this week,

so you’ll need to direct all of

your attention toward a special

project. Don’t let distractions

get in the way.

2nd Week: It may be tempting

to throw your weight

around and assert power

in a situation, Aries. But this

may backfire in the long run.

Try to be a team player.

3rd Week: Aries, maintain

your alignment with your

dreams and tap into your

warrior instinct if you come

up against a significant obstacle

later in the week.

4th Week: This should be a

very interesting week, Aries.

Money matters will be at the

heart of it. Figure out what

you want to do with the extra

cash that you have accumulated.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21

1st Week: Taurus, rather

than wishing for something

to happen, figure out a plan

to make it happen. Before

taking action, consult with

a few close friends for guidance..

2nd Week: Taurus, someone

close to you may be

driving you crazy, and you’re

tempted to let them know.

However, go with the flow

instead and enjoy this calmer

many different tasks simultaneously.

Don’t be surprised

if someone recognizes this

2nd Week: Gemini, an important

decision must be

made in the days ahead.

Take a calm approach and

do your best to keep your

emotions out of this discussion.

3rd Week: The theme of this

a mess behind. If you are

prompt, you will arrive late.

It could be refreshing.

4th Week: Gemini, this

week has the potential for a

few bumps in the road that

could be avoided if you simply

slow down a bit. Think

things through or you could

trip yourself up.

can be difficult to dial back

their involvement, Cancer.

Consider whether you

should ask for input or go it

alone this week.

could be essential in the

days and weeks ahead. This

shouting from the rooftops

how much you love a person,

it may be better to take

a more subtle approach.

Reel in your excitement for

the time being.

skills will be on display this

week, Leo. People at work

and at home will call on you

friends, something at home

could crop up that will need

your immediate attention.

Be flexible and at the ready.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22

1st Week: It seems that you

have been tasked with moving

from one difficult situation

into another one, Virgo.

Find ways to set aside time

strictly to unwind.

2nd Week: Keeping secrets

is not the way to go, Virgo,

especially when they are

kept from someone close to

you. Why all the smoke and

mirrors? Be open and honest

with yourself and others.

3rd Week: Virgo, this week

you could come up with a

new plan to make a big difference

in the world. It may

start with an assignment at

work or be inspired by volunteering.

sync. Maybe you have been
