This episode is all about learning the value that chiropractic care can have on a person’s quality of life. My guest is Dr. Jay Di Vagno, who has been my chiropractor since 2004. I met Dr. ‘D’ (as some folks call him) when my back was so stiff that I had trouble sitting, standing, and walking. After a few visits, he had me right as rain, and I have been seeing him ever since.
I hate to admit it but even before I was a grandpa, I was having some back and neck issues. Mostly from sitting all day at my work but I do have a few ‘war’ stories from my misspent youth that have contributed to my aches and pains. Now, as a grandpa, I want to keep those aches and pains to a minimum; so I can keep up with my grandkids.
In our conversation, we discuss the big and little physical traumas that we all experience in life and how they can lead to our joints and muscles, not working as designed over time. By adding chiropractic care into a Cool Grandpa’s routine, we can enjoy our years of chasing the grandkids around and being the healthy leaders that our families need.
Dr. D and I discuss how, along with chiropractic care, grandpas can stay healthy by adding low impact and low-stress activities to our daily lives. We both agree that it is important for Cool Grandpas to stay active as we grow older because that adage of “a rolling stone gathers no moss” applies even more to us as we age.

As a Cool Grandpa, have you wanted to make sure that you were on point for a family gathering, a business function, or just want to know if that black belt can be worn with those brown shoes?
If you know a Cool Grandpa, have you wanted to help them look their best without coming across as telling a “grown man” how to dress?
If so, come on in and join the conversation with Mark Fonseca and me. Mark is the leading men’s clothier in the Atlanta area. Mark has worked with on air personalities at CNN and Turner Broadcasting for five years. Mark has also worked with the renowned clothing expert and author Alan Flusser.
Mark is passionate in helping Cool Grandpas look their best and be relevant with family gatherings and social engagements.
We discuss the impact that Mark’s grandfather had on him in becoming a clothier and entrepreneur. Mark also talks to us about how grandpas can show up and be relevant to their families and grandchildren by following simple rules that don’t break the bank. We talk about some of the dos and don’ts of putting together a look that expresses the respect we have for our families and those we interact with. Mark also shares his tips about how to help men look put together even if they are color blind. Folks you are not going to believe how high a percentage of the population is in fact color blind or challenged to separate out colors or shades of colors.
In our conversation, Mark shares the amazing thoughts that his grandfather passed down to him and his sister, including the idea that you should be careful about what you wear because it tells others not only what you think about them but what YOU THINK of YOURSELF.
You can reach out to Mark by going to his website Dress the Man, or by sending him an email at MBF@DressTheMan.com
Alan Flusser worked with Mark on Alan’s book launch in Atlanta for Dressing the Man. Dressing the Man is considered the definitive book on what men need to know to look their best. You can access the book through the link below to Amazon

A granddaughter’s memories of her cool grandfathers
This conversation is the first episode that I have recorded with a granddaughter, and I was blown away with what I learned about Dee’s grandfathers. Dee shares with us how her cool grandpa’s influenced her from a young girl to a young woman. Dee discusses helping with farm work and how she was expected to work like ‘one of the boys.’ Dee also goes into detail about how doing farm work and learning to drive the tractor gave her confidence that followed her through school as well as developed a love for exercising with weights.
Dee really gets personal when she shares stories about how her grandfathers showed her how much they loved their God and their wives. Dee explains how important it is for grandpas to be consistent with their relationships because granddaughters are viewing the actions and consistency for how they expect the men in their lives to treat them as they develop their own relationships with men and with their God.
In this conversation with Charles Pineo, we discuss raising two in-home grandsons. Charles discusses his love of the outdoors, especially for epic canoeing trips in Canada and the North East United States. We talk about using scouts and the outdoors to help teach confidence and conversation skills with his grandsons. There are fantastic tips on spending time with the grandchildren out away from electronics and how helping them spend time with other adults on adventures increases self-awareness and self-confidence.
