Sunday reading

April 10, 2016


Not exactly a carnival duck game here, but it is a blog carnival on this Sunday–a few informative, interesting and even inspirational boomer blog posts for your Sunday reading pleasure.

Calling all grandmas who cook!

Speaking of carnivals, there’s a reality show for everyone, even grandmothers who cook.  On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the Food Network’s search for contestants for its new show “Clash of the Grandmas.” See her article for details on how to apply. Robison is thinking about applying, but she thinks it might be stressful to make unique, quality dishes in 20 to 30 minutes.  I’d have to agree.

We love retirement travel

At this stage of life it’s even more fun to travel, see new places, enjoy dining experiences, meet new people. Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting loves to travel, and high on her retirement bucket list is traveling. Currently enjoying her home as spring finally arrives, she ponders her next trip. People ask why she likes to wander so often. She answers in this post, Top Ten Reasons Retirement Travel is Terrific.

Take us out to the ball game!

April means the beginning of baseball season, and if you’re like me, baseball was the game of our youth. So run the bases over to Sightings Over Sixty to see if you Remember Him. But be forewarned, because, as he admits, “Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.”

The outdoors as a museum

How about some beautiful and fun nature photographs by Laura Lee Carter over at Adventures of the New Old Farts? She now lives in rural Colorado and treats us to some of the things she sees in her country life: birds, bees, bunnies and even a roadrunner up close!

If you’ll be a houseguest this year…

Good houseguest manners are a must, don’t you agree?Since summer  house guest season is coming up soon, today I’m sharing an oldie but goodie on how to be a good houseguest.

Enjoy your reading!
