coffee cupEvery 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.

Enjoy!

 Society lowers boom on “Baby Boomers”by Randy Hogan… Social Security, a government plan that set aside a portion of a worker’s paycheck for retirement, is rapidly drying up. Because our government leaders have been so frivolous with their spending they are now busy seeking to delay the “Golden Years” to age 68, 69 or even beyond.

I  hope you found this weeks choice(s) helpful and enjoyable. What did you think? Do you have any suggestions for next week?

Monday has always been a little bit of a let down, what with it being the beginning of the work week and all.

So to start things out on a bright note for the week, I bring you the…

Baby Boomers Monday Musings. 

Only a Southerner

- Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don’t “HAVE” them, you “PITCH” them.

- Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up “a mess.”

- Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of “yonder.”

- Only a Southerner knows exactly how long “directly” is, . as in: “Going to town, be back directly.”

- Only a Southerners know exactly when “by and by” is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.

- Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who’s got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor’s trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large peach cobbler!

- Only a Southerner grows up knowing the difference between “right near” and “a right far piece.” They also know that “just down the road” can be 1 mile or 20.

- Only a Southerner knows you don’t scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say,”Bless her heart” and go your own way.

Hope that put a little smile on your face and Keep On Smilin’

 Baby boomers and retirement by William Schmick… The nation’s workforce has experienced some traumatic events over the past five years. Between the financial crises, global competition and the slow pace of domestic economic growth, is it any wonder that employment in the U.S. is not what it should be? Yet the biggest challenge of all may be right around the corner as the Baby Boomers retire in droves.
