WiseWolf on the Discuss HR Blog - Career Development for the Over 60s Today a post from me appears on the UK's premier HR Blog, Discuss HR.  Here is an extract  "First I have to admit to a personal interest here; I am well over sixty. Second, I have to make a confession; I still don’t really know what I want to do when I grow up. David Willetts , the higher education minister, has spoken recently about encouraging older people take up degree courses. Quite a lot of over 60s take up degree courses already of course – in 2011/12, nearly 2,000 started a first degree. Most of them were with the Open University with “The Arts Past and Present” being the most popular course, apparently. But a history of art course is not what Mr Willets (who was known as “Two Brains” to my generation of Civil Servants) has in mind. No, what dear old David wants us to do is to “train”, so that we can cope with the pressures we will face as we work “well into our sixties”. His comments follow

Friday Fish Recipe - Veracruz-Style Red Snapper

Image
Friday Fish Recipe - Veracruz-Style Red Snapper  Any white, flaky fish will work. Many Veracruz-style fish recipes call for pickled jalapenos, but there’s plenty of acidity in this from the lime and tomatoes,  fresh peppers should be fine. If you don’t want to do this in individual portions, you can certainly do it in a regular casserole dish, but you’ll probably need to give it a few extra minutes. Simply use the same fork-flaking doneness test as shown in the clip. Flakiness never lies. Other than a few minutes of slicing, this couldn’t be easier. Serve simply with some chips, or over rice for a more substantial meal. Either way, I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy Ingredients for 2 servings:   2 boneless red snapper fillets, about 7 oz each cayenne,  salt and pepper to taste 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 white onion, diced 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon capers 1 tablespoon caper brine 1 large jalapeno, sliced, seeded 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 1
