If these two were still alive, I’m sure we would have been partying like teenagers today. Our Miami Beach neighbor Kent Karosen (left) was from Kansas City, and along with his husband, Brian B Hauserman, were huge Kansas City Chiefs fans.
They didn’t need too much of an excuse to ”celebrate” big time. They were a big part of the Miami Beach social life. We met them through our BFF’s Gail and Dawn. We will root for KC with all of our hearts. It’s been over a year since we lost Kent, and four months for Brian.
We can’t believe Super Bowl is here and they are not. We miss them both so much.

This episode of “Lying on the Beach” can actually help you hear better. Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess spoke to Chris Ellis, CEO of AudioCardio, a mobile app that claims to protect and restore hearing.
The app allows you to quickly evaluate your hearing and generate a personalized, inaudible sound therapy to protect and strengthen your hearing. Think of it like physical therapy for your ears.
And because the sound therapy is inaudible, you use the app while you enjoy other activities like going for a walk, listening to music, or even while you are working out.
Steve and Lois will be testing the app over the next few months. Most folks don’t realize that hearing loss can be very detrimental as they get older. There is a definite correlation between the loss of hearing and balance, dementia, etc. Listen to this podcast to understand how you can test your hearing for life and avoid elderly mishaps that can lead to serious injuries or even death. Happy days ahead.

Full disclosure. I hired a very knowledgeable political writer to help me research and debate false claims by the Trump administration. I just couldn’t stand by and do nothing. Today’s issue:
Here’s the truth about Immigrants.
This is what Trump’s really successful at – playing to people’s worst phobias and worst impressions of immigrants.
There is a bogus claim that immigrants are a drain on the US economy, and are takers. Maybe, you should actually check the facts first before believing Trump’s nonsense.
Myth #1: Immigrants take more from the U.S. government than they contribute
Fact: Immigrants contribute more in tax revenue than they take in government benefits
Myth #2: Immigrants take American jobs
Fact: Immigrants workers often take jobs that boost other parts of the economy
Myth #3: The U.S. economy does not need immigrants
Fact: Immigrants are key to offsetting a falling birth rate. If not for immigrants, the U.S. workforce would be shrinking.
Myth #4: It would be better for the economy if immigrants’ children were not citizens
Fact: Children with citizenship are more productive workers.
Googling for the facts can be a bit inconvenient if you want to flesh out Trump’s lies. Don’t worry though, I did it for you.
