Blogs by boomers

June 10, 2017

It’s that time again: blogs by Boomers. And for Boomers. But you know what? Other age groups will enjoy the diversity of topics covered and maybe even the (ahem) elder wisdom they contain.

Like me, Meryl Baer loves travel –it’s one of her passions. The Six Decades and Counting blogger is currently on a family adventure in a country she visited once, fifty years ago – Israel. Too exhausted keeping up with the younger generations to think or write coherently, she posted pictures of the first stop – Jerusalem: Past and Present in Pictures.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the best cars for older drivers. Subaru Forester, Subaru Outback, and Kia Soul are rated the best three in Consumer Reports’ list of the top 25 new cars of senior drivers. Find that post HERE

In The Perils of Downsizing Tom Sightings points out some of the difficulties and inconveniences of moving and re-establishing your home — and your life. Nevertheless, he concludes (or hopes!) that the whole process is worth it in the end.

After seeing a recent article about bike accidents with statistics, Laura Lee of Adventures of the NEW Old Farts realized she was one of them!  Go read about her run in with doing a face plant over her handle bars!

And I’m thrilled to reprise my post on being hit with a kindness grenade last month, in my post HERE.

  2. Hi Carol! Thanks for putting these all together so we can easily find them and read! While I follow you and most of them, if we are busy when we first get the notice it is far too easy to forget to go back and check. Thank you and may the week ahead of you be AWESOME! ~Kathy
