Lindy McClean, whose Senior Smart Puzzles published last December has been so well received, announced this month that a second Senior Smart Puzzles book is currently on the market.

"I've received such an enthusiastic response from care givers and Baby Boomers with elderly parents that I have just published Senior Smart Puzzles Book 2," McClean said.

Veronica Spaulding, activity director at Curry Good Samaritan Center, showed appreciation for the availability of a second senior puzzle book.

"I have been using the first book with residents, not just for solving puzzles, but also in stimulating conversation and reminiscences. I think it's fantastic," Spaulding said.

McClean, who is a massage therapist, first recognized a need for something stimulating and entertaining for her older clients in conversations during massage treatment.

She did some research, found nothing appropriate on the market, and decided to fill the niche herself.

McClean noted that the books include picture puzzles, hidden objects, same/different, mazes and more, all appropriate for the aging brain.

McClean has utilized the services of illustrator James Cloutier and Nikki Harris Graphic Design.

"Both books … (are on) my Web site or Amazon.com and phone orders may be placed with BookSurge Publishing, (866) 308-6235," McClean said.

She also noted that high resolution cover images, new sample puzzles, and reviews can be found at http://www.seniorsmartpuzzles.com and she can be reached at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , or by telephone, (541) 469-0864.

  • IMF warns of huge financial hole as Greek vote looms
    ATHENS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund delivered a stark warning on Thursday of the huge financial hole facing Greece as angry and uncertain voters prepare for a referendum that could decide their country's future in Europe. Days after Greece defaulted on part of its IMF debt, the Fund, part of the lenders' "troika" behind successive international bailouts, said Greece needed an extra 50 billion euros over the next three years, including 36 billion from its European partners, to stay afloat. It also needed significant debt relief.
  • Aetna nears deal to buy Humana for about $34 billion: sources
    One person said Aetna's offer would value Humana at about $230 per share and that a deal could be announced as early as Friday. The offer, if it goes through, would make it the largest deal in the insurance industry, dwarfing Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) acquisition of WellPoint in 2004 for $16.6 billion. A $230 per share offer would be at a premium of nearly 23 percent to Humana's close on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday.
  • Asian stocks slip as China rout intensifies, dollar weak
    Asian stocks fell on Friday as China's stocks plunged and growing caution before Greece's weekend referendum prompted investors to cut risky bets, while disappointing U.S. employment data weighed on the dollar. The rout in China's stock markets has wiped out trillions of dollars of market capitalization in Shanghai and Shenzhen's stock markets. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell more than 1 percent in early trading while Japan's Nikkei stock index (.N225) slipped 0.4 percent, positioning it to shed more than 1 percent for the week.
