Senior citizens are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population and have been for the past two decades, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. In fact, there are more people between the ages of 80 and 90 years of age and more individuals over 100 in America than ever before.
Police in Singapore appear to have a lot of time on their hands. The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] says the island nation has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
Police there recently conducted a major investigation to find the culprit who left three toothpicks on the seat of a city bus. They nabbed a 60-year-old suspect who faces the possibility of two years in jail for that offense.
The Singapore police caught a serial litterbug a few years back who had been tossing cigarette buts out of the window of his apartment. His punishment: a nearly $15,000 fine.
Gracious, spacious living
International house hunters in London might want to consider a new 1,500 sq. ft., four story, luxury town home that will soon be built in the city’s historic Fitzrovia neighborhood, suggests the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].
The developer believes that the place could fetch as much as $3.5 million-a bargain for an abode that measures about 10 feet in width. That’s just six feet and a few inches wider than the doorway of an average American home.
And, if that’s a bit too pricey for your budget, you may want to consider the 7-foot wide home that is on the market in London’s fashionable Kensington neighborhood. The asking price for that house is less than $2 million.
