Two Invitations

     I received a comment from a reporter for a national publication with the following request. I thought about doing it myself; but it really didn't seem appropriate for me. My life, my financial life, is perhaps a little too complicated to fit into the profile she's looking for.

     Anyway, reporter Veronica Dagher writes for a major national newspaper. She is looking to "profile a senior citizen who is living on a fixed income and is having to cut back their expenses because of the low-interest rate environment." She'd ask about your finances, expenses and investments; and your picture may appear in the paper.

     If you're interested in participating, email Veronica directly at Veronica.dagher@wsj.com. And tell her you heard about her through me.

A fantasy of the Baby Boomer Blog Carnival
     A second invitation: As some of you may have noticed we have a small group of bloggers that hosts a weekly carnival consisting of the Best of Baby Boomer Blogs. (Hey, who's to say they aren't!)

     We link blog posts, usually once a week, although sometimes we skip a week, in order to share what we're doing, offer different voices and points of view, and not incidentally, try to build our reader base through the links.

     We are now looking to augment our group by a couple of bloggers. So if you're a baby boomer blogger, and think you may have something to add to our group, shoot me an email with a link to your blog at tomsightings@gmail.com., and I'll get back to you with more details.

     Thanks for your consideration, and I hope at least a few of you will take up one of these opportunities. Happy blogging!

Sorry Tom, but I have to decline both offers. Our financial situation would bore someone to death. And neither of us is a Baby Boomer. We are the tail end of the Greatest Generation, or at least I am. David was born the year the stock market crashed the first time (but not the worst time).

A WISE MAN NEVER ADVISES ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET TOM. I GUESS THAT WAS WHY YOU WERE "EASED OUT."
