Senior ShowStoppers dance circles around stereotypes
Sultry women draped in gossamer, adorned with trinkets and coins, shimmy their hips on the main stage. All the women gyrating are over 70; some are in their early 80s. These members of Joanne DeWilde’s belly dancing troupe are just a fraction of the elite entertainment group called The Senior ShowStoppers.
Dear Bay Gardener
My son-in-law has a Lavatera shrub that I want a cutting from. How do I go about getting a good start from the original plant?
I can’t find a Lavatera. The only nurseries that have them seem to be in England or Ireland.
