Best of Boomers Discuss Chocolate...and other topics

This week the Best of Boomers attempt to forget the endless winter with the latest news concerning a food favorite - chocolate, an interesting idea on clearing the mind, thoughts on our sometimes misguided memories, and a school subject much unloved by many - grammar.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about action Wednesday by a consumer group asking the state of California to inform consumers that there are high levels of lead and cadmium in chocolate. As You Sow filed legal notices against Hershey’s, See’s Candies, and Mars, with a previous legal action filed against 13 additional chocolate manufacturers.

Tom Sightings, Sightings Over Sixty, who volunteers as a writing tutor at his local community college, answers a question that is currently on the minds of all Americans: Do You Know What a Gerund Is?  Okay ... okay ...he says. But you might want to know anyway.

Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting ponders the woes of news anchor Brian Williams and wonders in this week’s post, Misremembering My Life, if she unwittingly misremembers facts of her life.
