November 6, 2016



Are you tired of election coverage? Me, too.  So glad you’re here— a great group of bloggers and a great group of blog posts today–enjoy some good Boomer reading:

Did you know one president ran against a corpse?

The media continue 24/7 coverage of the Presidential election as the endless campaign finally winds down.

On The  Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the importance of keeping track of your gift cards and making sure they get spent. With the holidays coming, Robison also offers tips on how to buy gift cards. More than $100 billion is spent on gift cards annually, with 93 percent of U.S. consumers purchasing or receiving a gift card each year. Consumers spend an average of $213 annually on gift cards, so find good info HERE.

    Thank you for the gift card information. I have so many laying around that I have no idea what is still on them if anything I need to use them all up soon.
