INTRODUCTION TO GURFEIN & TOBINGurfein & Tobin? Really? I need this? I need this like a hole in my heart pacer! But actually, I need this, and you need, this because it is the best online place to be with people who are sick of being seniors and know that we are Premiums! Gurfein's Vlogs and Tobin's Blogs are keeping in the treasured history of greats like Rowan & Martin (or, perhaps Cheech and Chong). We've actually built this site for ourselves but you are welcome to hang with us. We plan to have a great time (with a little meaning sprinkled in here and there). Plus there isn't a single product on our site that we wouldn't personally try to sell you, er, I mean that we wouldn't personally want to own ourselves. So jump in and have a great brain swim.

GEDALIAH’S VLOG - 60+ LIFE HACKS FOR 60+ PREMIUMS, PART ONE
“Hack”? Seriously, Michael? My partner has decided to teach us fellow premiums the best way to live our lives. So he borrowed a phrase from the Millennials – “hack”. But when we were their age “hack” meant to tear your meat instead of cut it. Or hack was something that happened in a lot of Alfred Hitchcock movies. So I decided to “hack” myself out of this video and take a step to the side.
TOBIN’S BLOG - 60+ LIFE HACKS FOR 60+ PREMIUMS, PART ONE
Today, I decided to break the rules. It’s one of the prerogatives of being a Premium - not needing to be a good boy.
I’m going to start with a poetry slam on the experience of aging. It has nothing to do with the title of this blog. It’s just that a half hour ago someone sent me this Dr. Zeus rip-off on the ills of aging and it pissed me off. So much so that I felt compelled to slam his poem. (I’m convinced the author is a “he” – something about the peeing and screwing).
So, first the self-pity ditty on aging, and then my rendition. Read More...
GEDALIAH’S VLOG – A LETTER TO MY ADULT CHILDREN
My partner Tobin has written a letter to his adult children. I’ll let you read his blog below to see where he is coming from. For me I would never write my children of any age a letter. Who the heck even knows what a letter is today?
TOBIN’S BLOG – A LETTER TO MY ADULT CHILDREN
This is not a letter I particularly want to write, but it’s one that needs to be written. I’ll leave it up to Mom to write one if she’s so inclined.
You guys know all too well that I don’t think, feel, or act old. Yet, a few of you (you know who) feel compelled to remind me that I’m not a youngster. “Why are you training with so much weight? Why not just hire a porter? What are you trying to prove? Almost no one your age can trek to the Everest Base Camp so why make it harder for yourself?” Read More...
GURFEIN’S VLOG – PARENTING ADULT CHILDREN PART TWO
And while we are still on the subject of dealing with our kids who are no longer kids – let’s think about what is it that they really want from us? Because, after all, even though (hopefully) the myth of being a god has gone and now they know we, too, are just human, there is still a unique connection between parent and child no matter what the age. So there has got to be something special we can do for them that no one else will be able to tap into. The question is… what is that? What can we offer?
TOBIN’S BLOG – PARENTING ADULT CHILDREN PART TWO
However, first, a little patience because I want to begin with a real story that happened to a friend of mine. It’s a great example of the kind of problem that anyone of us Premiums might encounter.
Makes sense. As a rule, it’s not a good idea for a grandparent to undermine the parent by taking over the role of the disciplinarian. The first authority is the parent, not the grandparent. In almost every situation, our job as Premium Parents and Grandparents is to help empower our children, never to diminish them, especially in front of their children. Read More...
