The Best of Boomer Blogs

     Laura Lee Carter over at Midlife Crisis Queen has updated the old Blogging Boomers Carnival, after a mid-winter break, and relaunched with a new name, The Best of Boomer Blogs.

Where is Katie Foster?
     Check out this week's roundup, where you'll find some timely and interesting posts from our fellow Baby Boomers.

     They include items on the perils of the stock market, the anti-obesity campaign sponsored by Coca Cola (Coke ... really?), the virtues of getting organized ... as well as a post by Katie Foster, our intrepid Baby Boomer who currently lives in Dubai, one of the seven emirates that comprise the United Arab Emirates, where the average high temperature in January is 75 degrees F. (Can you find Dubai on the map?)

     I hope you enjoy this sampling of issues that currently concern Baby Boomers. You might also want to note that Laura Lee has a book coming out soon, called Find Your Reason to Be Here. The book might be worth checking out as well.

     Speaking of 75 degrees in January, what I'm focused on now is the weather in Florida, where I will soon join the flock of snowbirds to spend three weeks basking in the sun. (So far, the weather report looks good!)

     Several bloggers have already departed for warmer climes ... am I the last to go? I don't know how much blogging I'll be doing over the next couple of weeks. I suppose it depends on the weather. The better the weather, the less blogging. The more rain, the more blogging. See you around!

Coca-Cola's anti-obesity campaign reminds me of the tobacco company which tried to get out of harm's way by putting out anti-smoking ads. It's a way to say "Hey, I'm on your side"... and it seldom works as planned. On the other hand, I am one of those who (a) does not drink carbonated drinks and (b) suspects that the increases in diabetes and weight gain are the result of artificial sweeteners.

Here in Virginia, we are marginally warmer than you, but I import oranges and grapefruit from Florida to bring the sunny south to me in winter. Try it. Dianne

Since I always enjoy reading your posts I hope it rains where you are. Yes---I can be a selfish bastard.

Our average high in Phoenix for this time of year is 70, so if Florida treats you poorly, come out west. Spring training games start in 4 weeks.
