I haven't heard anything about Art Linkletter in years. Please see what you can find out about him.
—Jean T., Sonora, Calif.

At 93, the former TV personality remains active and busy. He gives between 50 and 70 lectures a year on the topics of marketing, real estate (he owns a million-acre sheep ranch in Australia), drug abuse, the American family and successful aging, a topic that particularly interests him as chairman of the board of the Center of Aging at the UCLA School of Medicine. "I am now writing my 28th book on how to make the rest of your life the best of your life," he says. "I never knew who my parents were. I was abandoned as an orphan. But apparently they gave me great genes." Linkletter and wife Flora have been married since 1935.
