Las Vegas, Nevada - Just in time for the holidays, a British spirits distributor is offering an advent calendar for adults. Instead of chocolate treats the calendar offers up daily doses of “very old and rare” whiskies from around the world. The calendar features 24 individual drams of whiskies including one that would set you back $24,656.78 if you purchased a bottle of the stuff, says the Association of Mature American Citizens.

Washington, DC - Dear Rusty: My girlfriend of nine years will be 66 on June 4th next year. It was her plan to begin taking half of her ex-husband’s SS at that time allowing hers to grow until she reached 70 at which time her benefit would slightly exceed half of her ex’s. Three months ago, I was diagnosed with an illness that may very well shorten my time here significantly. So, I’m thinking if we get married she would qualify for 100% of my SS after one year, which would be only four months later than when she could begin taking half her ex’s. So, I guess, in that instance she would just begin taking half of my benefit.
