The Boomers Speak

This is a weekly compilation of the blogs of five Baby Boomers, of which I am one. I've not met any of them yet, but we're a congenial group. Check out their contributions this week!

Ever wonder what it's like to wake up after a lovely snow in the Colorado foothills? Laura Lee Carter wants to share!

Tom Sightings reports on the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute which involves "communities where the participants not only take on challenging subjects but also seek to engage more deeply with their fellow students." And this week's post he reflects on his own educational efforts and recalls a young student who reminds him Why We Write.

Meryl Baer was on the road again this week. Actually, she and hub were in the air on the way to a week grandsitting the grandkids. Anything can happen traveling nowadays via air. Meryl's flight to Florida was one more in a series of Spirit Air escapades. Read about her trip in In-flight Entertainment.

It's been a busy week for Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writing at The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide. Robison writes about the new Dietary Guidelines, how the skyrocketing amount of advertising that teens see on e-cigarettes is causing a huge increase in teens using the product, the president's executive actions on gun control, and the federal lawsuit against Volkswagen over faulty emission software. Head over to her blog to take a look at these action packed consumer stories.

My post is very much at home, with The Designer Cat Decides - my own take on the feline mind.

Enjoy!

I looked at everyone of these blogs, some that I already visit regularly, and left comments on most. This is such a wonderful idea Linda. I think we all have some favorites that we enjoy and sharing those with other increases our list of GOOD writers. Thank you.

And your designer cat makes me laugh. Smart or empty headed...who knows.
