Best of Boomer Blogs, Monsoon Edition


“Some are weather-wise, most are otherwise…”   — Benjamin Franklin

A fun fact that few of you may know, July is monsoon season in Colorado. Last July we got almost seven inches of rain here in southern Colorado, an all-time record!

Yes, spring is moist here, but July can be even more rainy. I am so aware of this because I’ve been working as a volunteer for CoCoRahs for the past sixteen years, measuring precipitation everywhere I’ve lived since then. Come to think of it, that’s six different locations!

Oh well, on to the Best of Boomer Blogs for this week:

Are you ready for a little game of who is this person? Tom Sightings wants to know if you can place the white-haired woman from the 1980s, who for better or worse, brought a matter-of-fact style and cutting wit to the national scene. Go check out Remember Her? to see if you can identify her before Sightings gives you the answer.

Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting spent a relaxing weekend at home over the Fourth of July weekend, although her usually quiet island paradise was invaded by hordes of holiday revelers. A reunion of old friends highlighted her holiday weekend. Check out her post Two Decades and Counting.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the fact that millennials, born between 1982 and 2000, now outnumber baby boomers, 83.1 million to 75.4 million. Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964. The U.S. Census Bureau also said millennials are a more diverse group than boomers and Gen X, with 44.2 percent being part of a minority race or ethnic group.
