In this issue of Saga Magazine : The August issue of Saga Magazine is full of fun. Our cover star, Paul Merton, has been brightening up our lives for nearly 30 years on Have I Got News for You, Just a Minute, and many other TV and radio shows. Here he explains why he’s happy to be returning to his first love: doing live improvisational comedy with a bunch of chums. Then we have a clutch of amusing wedding-day anecdotes from those who’ve married later in life.
There’s nothing funny, however, about being conned while you’re on holiday. Don’t leave home without getting up to speed on the latest travel scams – dodgy car hire, tricksy timeshares, fake accommodation listings – and, most importantly, how to avoid them.
In our health section, we cover the importance of a good night’s rest. Skimp on sleep long term and you risk diminishing your immune system as well as cognitive decline. If you’re a keen walker, don’t miss our feature about one man’s six-year fight back to better health following Lyme disease, caused by a tiny tick bite. Plus there’s advice on staying safe in the sun. And on the financial front, Paul Lewis outlines the consumer rights that come with paying for things by debit or credit card.
All that, plus our regular round-up of the arts, relationship dilemmas solved by Jo Brand, Dr Mark Porter’s Q&As, our £100 prize crosswords and a last laugh with Bill Bailey. We hope you enjoy it.
