-- Sadly, we lost musician Pete Seeger this week, who died at the age of 94. We first paid tribute to him with the image above, and then we shared two very special videos. First, we shared an in-studio interview with did with The Byrds' co-founder Roger McGuinn, who got out his guitar to explain how he learned "Turn! Turn! Turn!" from Seeger and put his own "Beatle beat" on it. Then, we shared a video of Roger and Bruce Springsteen performing "Turn! Turn! Turn!" together at a concert and Roger explained how that very cool rock moment came to be.

-- This week, we welcomed a very special guest to the Growing Bolder TV studios -- 3-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines. Rowdy stopped by to guest-host a special Fountain of Youth episode of Growing Bolder. Research is proving that the closest thing to a fountain of youth that we have is regular physical activity and Rowdy is exhibit A. Check out more behind-the-scenes pictures.

-- What does 65 look like to you? Maybe it's time you turned your thinking upside down! Growing Bolder fan Constance from Kansas sent us the picture above from her neighborhood playground saying this is what 65 looks like on her thanks to her dedication to Les Mills group exercise classes. She also shares this piece of advice: "Exercise beyond what you think you can do, leave white food alone and cultivate optimism. (Have) lots of friends and serve. That will keep you around for a long time." Amen, Constance!
