It takes a village to raise a child, the old proverb says.Turns out it also takes one to help an adult age.In all corners of the United States, people who are growing older are turning to villages — virtual villages, that is — for support. Need a ride to the doctor? Someone to watch the cat while you’re on vacation? The village can help. Social outings, meals, movies, and seminars? Depending on the virtual village, all of that can be available to members, as well.Born out of Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood in 2002, virtual villages have rapidly spread across the country in recent years as another twist on the peer-to-peer economy. Now, with more than 200 villages in 45 states and Washington, D.C., plus 150 more villages in development, according to the national Village to Village network, virtual villages have become a forceful movement to help offset the social and financial housing challenges facing many aging residents.The idea is relatively simple: Seniors … [Read more...] about On the House: For seniors looking to age at home, virtual villages offer support

The Snelling-Marshall Avenue Starbucks is right on the corner of “gotta have my coffee” and “I don’t want to die today.” The two streets are meaty arteries cutting through the center of St. Paul. Combined, they see 67,000 cars every day, plowing through the Union Park neighborhood. The area is quickly gentrifying, with the big, shiny Starbucks and the Whole Foods sticking out like a pair adult horse incisors in a mouthful of baby teeth. The drive-thru itself is just feet away from the fateful place where Marshall and Snelling meet. You can see it immediately by the flame-orange plastic barriers marking the entrance and the perimeter… and the line dividing incoming and oncoming traffic down Marshall. Drivers enter, turn in a tight circle through the small parking lot (good luck actually parking there), and leave the same way they came. Or at least that’s the idea. What actually happens is a car comes in from the east on Marshall, tries to cross … [Read more...] about A St. Paul Starbucks and the drive-thru from hell
