Today I’m bringing you my edition of our weekly Baby Boomer roundup from my blog at A Healing Spirit. To my own readers here, this is a weekly compilation of blog posts by active Baby Boomers busy living life. I think you’ll find a nugget or two of useful info!


Summer Boomer style looks like any other season–with thoughts and activities both practical and deep.. So let’s start:

Here’s something: I have been here and just can’t pull the trigger:  Rebecca Olkowski with is struggling with whether she should bite the bullet and go for silver hair. It’s becoming a trend with young women but not all of us older women are ready for it. Her dyed hair is sprouting gray and she’s wondering if it’s worth the effort to maintain it. Here’s her story.

Tom Sightings had to go two thousand miles from home to get some advice about money. But his post Do You Argue About Money? offers an approach that extends well beyond money issues and could be helpful for any kind of communication with a friend or loved one.
Speaking of money, On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the hidden fees that most Americans pay regularly. They include bank overdraft fees, resort fees, add-on fees for online purchases, baggage fees, reservation fees, and many more. See Robison’s article “Do You Pay Hidden Fees?” for details.
Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting spent the past week in the great outdoors, on blue waters sailing along the coast of Maine and enjoying gourmet cuisine. Poor internet connection prevented an on-going tale of her adventure, but when once again on land she summarized her six-day adventure on the windjammer Angelique here.

What do you see when you look at a hole in the ground? Jennifer, at Unfold and Begin, feels that how you see a problem reflects your creativity. But there’s hope. In her current post, Jennifer shares how you can rebuild your creative muscles through different practices.

And today I remind myself and readers that friendships, like gardens, must be tended to, and I suggest some ways to do that in How to Cultivate Your Friendship Garden.

Have a beautiful week, everyone!
