The Best Of Boomer Bloggers Enjoy Home, Hometown, and Offer a Challenge

August implies fall is around the corner. I am taking advantage of summer while it lasts. Time at the beach and seasonal foods supply warm memories during the cold winter months.
Summer and the beach - a perfect match!
Farm-fresh corn on the cob, steamed clams,
and tomatoes from the garden - the perfect summer dinner.
I attended a writer’s conference last week in my old hometown and wrote about returning to Lancaster PA. Friends considered a couple of my observations inaccurate, so I wrote a follow up post with some clarifications. Read Lancaster My Hometown Part Two here

My fellow bloggers have been busy this week.

Laura Lee appears lost in gratitude since she moved into her solar home in the foothills, probably because she thought it would never happen! Go check out her two latest posts about freedom and love.

Tom Sightings has a challenge for you today that has nothing to do with age, class, ethnicity or gender . . . oops, wait a second, it does have something to do with gender. So, do you think you can identify the 12 Reasons Why Women Have It Easier Than Men?

Our consumer reporter, Rita Robison, is nursing a fractured kneecap, but took time to write about a special birthday - the 80th birthday of Social Security. Check out her post on the Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide.

I hope everyone has the opportunity to enjoy summer before the seasons change.

Take a few minutes to read our posts and comment. We love to hear from our readers. 


  1. Love the seasonal foods, especially at the beach. Gulf shrimp is reason enough to go to Florida for the winter. I like to extend the summer season as much as possible.

  2. One of the benefits of retirement is enjoying summer beyond Labor Day!
