The Best of Boomers Offer a Quiz, Questions, and Consumer Alerts

This week our bloggers offer an interesting quiz, discuss two consumer actions, look back on a blogging career, and describe an evening out.
Tom Sightings asks you to consider Vice President Joe Biden. Do you know how old he is? Do you know whether he is older or younger than actor Joe Pesci? Take your stroller, or your walker, over to Who Is Older? at Sightings Over Sixty and take the quiz that will let you know if you've been keeping up with the ages.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison writes about two actions that will help protect consumers.

DIRECTV didn’t give consumers full information about their offer for discounted service and a “free three month” deal for HBO and Showtime. Instead, their viewers got stuck with charges they didn’t know about or approve, the Federal Trade Commission charged in a lawsuit.

In a settlement with the New York Attorney General’s Office, the nation’s three leading credit reporting agencies – Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion – agreed to overhaul their practices for fixing errors and the treatment of medical debt on consumers’ reports.
How does one gracefully close out a blog after eight years? Laura Lee is thinking about this exact dilemma over at this week

What is a night out on the town the senior way? Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting recounts a night out that began in the afternoon and ended...well, read all about it in An Afternoon and Night Out On the Town (the Senior Way).


  1. I enjoyed this post, and I somehow had miss your afternoon and night out, so I read it, too. If you do find out how to gracefully close out a blog, I hope you share it. I'll go over to that blog and see if she figures it out. :-)

  2. Nice job, Meryl, on the Best of Boomer Blogs.
