Thursday / July 31

This week’s episode presents "The Pursuit of Happiness": polls and surveys seem to indicate that people get happier as they age. Watch and find out why. Plus, a profile of Memphis artist Mary Norman. She retired from painting for 12 years, but recently came back to the art world with a show at Gallery Ten Ninety One in 2013.

And an interview with Patrick O'Daniel, author of Memphis and the Super Flood of 1937. In February and March of that year Memphis became home to 60,000 refugees from the flood.

Next week (August 7) on The Best Times - volunteers and volunteering in the Mid-South, well-known Memphis actor Barry Fuller and a FAQ segment on hypertension, the silent killer.
