Dunc liked to play music loud, whatever the genre, and I often found myself becoming slightly irked by the volume, particularly if I'd had a busy day or was feeling stressed. As a result, I was surprised that I felt the need to listen to a lot of music, and at quite some volume, in the early days following Dunc's death.
The main difference between men and women is arguably just fear. Most women admit they are scared of looking older, and some will do almost anything in their power to keep the classic signs of ageing at bay. That's not to say there aren't examples of older females who look and feel fabulous as they age.
