Best of Boomer Blogs #480

It’s time to hear from a few of my favorite bloggers of a certain age… What have they been doing or thinking about this week?

Carol Cassara has a very funny one for you today. Here she shares the many misheard song lyrics that Boomers (and others) have been massacring for years, if not decades. And also some pretty things to make your day cheerier. Enjoy the beauty.

Anyone who has even a passing acquaintance with the Sightings Over 60 blog knows that Tom Sightings is thinking a lot about downsizing, primarily because he’s in the middle of the process himself. But rather than offer his own advice about this complex and emotionally trying operation, he turns to a professional in his latest post The Costs and Benefits of Downsizing.

Two giant corporations pled guilty to criminal charges related to fraudulent schemes, with some of their executives being charged, too. In addition, they’ll pay huge fines, Volkswagen $2.8 billion for cheating on emission tests and Takata $1 billion for falsified test data related to the safety of its air bags.

2017-color-of-the-yearA new year offers many new opportunities. Did you know each year one company designates a color corporate soothsayers believe not only expresses the nation’s mood, but also becomes a major color for retail merchandise like clothing, accessories, home appliances, decor, and even furniture?

Find out what the latest ‘in’ color is over at Meryl Baer‘s post about the 2017 Color of the Year.

very-cute-puppyAnd now for my favorite photo from all of these marvelous boomer blogs! He’s awfully cute! Who doesn’t love a puppy? But perhaps he isn’t quite as cute as my Rasta the day we got him. He was only 3 pounds and unbelievably CUTE!

Unfortunately, I have been hit with a number of bits of bad news about my health lately. This is especially hard to take since I have generally been healthy most of my life. I am having quite a reality check at 61!

cbd-oil-what-is-itWhen you hear there might be something wrong with your brain and your lungs on the same day, it does make you wonder what’s up. Perhaps that explains my post this week about Cannabinoid (CBD) Oil. It’s a none-THC oil derived from hemp plants. Go learn more here.

  1. Those are two breath-takingly cute puppies! Adorable! Sorry to hear about the bad news you’ve received about your health. My sister succumbed to lung cancer in 2015 ( actually she got pneumonia which was the cause of death as she grew so weak from chemo treatments). She was only 41 years old …so any lung related health issues really tear at my heart in a special way. My prayers are with you.

    • Hi Patty! Nice to hear from you! I’m feeling discouraged about my health. I have COPD and perhaps a “nodule” in one lung, my hearing is going and they are wondering if it is a tumor of some kind in my brain. I also have lots of pain in one shoulder and the other elbow. Besides that I’m GREAT!
