The Golden Years…

 

At Chaseley Trust, a British assisted living facility, residents have an alternative to bingo and sing-alongs:  Chaseley occasionally employs the services of strippers and escorts for their guests.

“People have needs,” manager Helena Barrow told The Sun. “We are there to help. We respect our residents as individuals so that’s why we help this to happen. If we refused, we would not be delivering a holistic level of care.”

Read more about this hands-on healing (and the controversy it has stirred) in The Sun (from whence, the photo above) and in Salon.

As we plan for early retirement, we might recall that it was on this date in 1692 that a doctor in Salem, Massachusetts (generally believed to have been William Griggs), was unable to find a physical explanation for the ailments (fits, pins-and-needles) of three young girls.  As other young women in Salem began to evince the same symptoms, the local preacher declared them “bewitched”… and the stage was set for The Salem Witch Trials.
