Every week I come across an article or two that I find very helpful to me as a Baby Boomer and think may be of some interest to you, the community, as well.
They may be from an online news source, another Blog or Website or something I found surfing around the Internet. They could even be something that was sent in by a reader of the Blog or a member of the Baby Boomer’s Forum.
Ten Things Iconic to Baby Boomers – Which their Kids/Grandkids Find Quaintby Pitt… Baby boomers, as children, saw the world their parents and grandparents grew up in as a strange land – far away. Now, their children and grandchildren look at the world they grew up in the same way. (Bonus points if you know the name of the guy – non-pornstar -pictured in #8.)
I hope you found this weeks choice(s) helpful and enjoyable. What did you think? Do you have any suggestions for next week?
