Have you had just about enough of action thrillers, space epics and teen-age love? Me too. That’s why I set out to make a list of my first movies starring….mature people.
In honor of the Academy Awards, I have chosen my 10 favorites. In fact, I was surprised how many good movies I found that celebrate aging. Chances are, there are others that deserve a top slot. But these are the ones I settled on.
- Driving Miss Daisy (1989). An old Jewish woman her black chauffeur in the American South have a relationship that grows and improves over the years. Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman in a classic that covers topics of bigotry, racism, age and independence.
2. The Bucket List (2007) Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. Mmmmm…Morgan’s name comes up a lot in this list.
Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m taking a moment to breathe and share a preview of our Annual Big Picture
event. Every year SpinLife hosts a unique weekend when our Product Experts and our great partner brands all convene at our home offices for 5 days of crazy, wonderful SpinLife magic. We’re the only online retailer who actually invites their manufacturers to physically come to our offices and show off their latest and greatest products and do training with our teams.
Our Big Picture events start today with internal roundtables between our departments. This is a great time for our Product Experts to share with the Marketing, Merchandising, and WebApp teams what they’re hearing on the phones. This helps them choose better products to list on the website, and make site changes to help our team and inform our customers. Our departments talk to each other every day, all year. But this is really a great time to discuss the “big picture”.
Our customers frequently ask for guidance when it comes to purchasing a lift chair, particularly….
“What in the world does infinite position mean and why do I need that?!”
First, let me explain what it means. Infinite position chairs are electrically controlled with a wired remote hand control that lifts and reclines them with no effort on your part, save for the pushing of a button. What sets Infinite Position Chairs apart from 2 or 3 position lift chairs is the fact that they have two separate motors that individually control the backrest from the seat and footrest portion of the chair. The hand control has additional buttons allowing you to change the angle of the backrest up and down, and independently change the position of the seat and footrest using different buttons on the hand control. This can be really helpful in mitigating a number of physical issues, and allow for you maximum comfort when relaxing since you can really “fine-tune” the position of your chair.
