Barbara Allen's fantasy is to fly in a hot-air balloon over Provence, France. Scuba diving and kayaking are her husband's favorite pastimes. And they've recently embarked on a business venture that could allow them to do both. About a year ago, the Allens launched PrimeVenture Journeys, a travel agency that specializes in adventure vacations for people 40 and older, booking trips with days of hiking and canoeing and nights of fancy dinners and relaxation. "Our trips are not for people that just want to lay on the beach," said Barbara Allen, who grew up in Arizona, camping and fishing through her childhood.

Four months after her anxious but successful debut as a fifth-grade teacher, Mary Hanna appears to have grown eyes in the back of her head.One minute, she's chatting with a visitor, then breaks away in mid-sentence to help a pupil quietly struggling with an assignment. She resumes the conversation, hopping up again to discard a wayward balloon that should be underneath a desk.
