Laura Lee, aka The Midlife Crisis Queen, had a terrible wildfire burning within 7 miles of her home this past week. So she's pitched in to help keep everyone updated on the High Park Fire (and she also provides a link to more fire photos.) But, she reports, she also did find time to go see the film "The Artist" and provide us with a review.
(I saw the movie earlier this year -- I thought it was so good, it left me, uh . . . . speechless -- but Laura Lee's analysis brought me a few new insights about the film and what it means for us today.)

(And if you follow Katie's link, you can walk along with her to the Dubai Mall, the ice rink -- yes, there's an ice rink in Dubai, despite an average high temperature in June of 97 degrees -- and to the world's tallest building, the Dubai aquarium, and a few other choice locations.)
This week on The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, newcomer Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, summons up some fascinating facts and figures about Father's Day, writes about her frustration over the new packaging for her checkbooks, and shares her pride in marching in the Gay Pride parade in Olympia, Wash.
|Ah, summer vegetables!|
But on a slightly more positive note, the Accidental Locavore, a Boomer who writes about real food for real people, is happy to have found a new source for her weekly farm basket. See what was fresh this week -- and what she did with it.
