Boomer blogs usually appear on my personal website, but today, they’re visiting us here at A Healing Spirit providing a little levity, a little rant and lots of good info. So come on along for the ride!

There’s nothing like a fresh, juicy strawberry to remind us of summer–and we are all powering through the summer, –how did we get to the second half of July already?!

My Boomer blogging pals are still writing, despite the heat wave, and today I’ve got curated bunch of posts to make you think, smile and, well…you decide.

Laurie Stone of Musings, Rants & Scribbles admits she has a problem with her terrier, Libby. Like watching a misbehaving child in school, Laurie sees where her “slight spoiling” might have created a sense of entitlement in this little Yorkie/Papillion. How bad a wild child is Libby? Let us count the ways in this post entitled, Okay, So I’m The Worst Dog Trainer… Ever.

If you write, you’ve been there.  Days or even weeks when we feel like there’s nothing new to say. How can I write anything original? It’s already been written before. Jennifer, of Unfold and Begin, shares her technique for How to Use Pinterest to Brainstorm Content.

Rebecca Olkowski with spent an afternoon at the Lotus Festival at Echo Park Lake in Los Angeles. Urban lakes make a great escape when you live in a big city. Plus, they have swan boats, and on this day, dragon boats. She shares a fun day of immersive Asian culture.

At times the business of everyday life can be frustrating. This week Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting encountered a straightforward and uncomplicated project that went awry. She vents her frustration in this week’s post Mad About Bait and Switch.

Tom from Sightings Over Sixty was at a dinner party last week with three normal, middle-class retired couples. There was no overt talk of politics, he reports, but everyone in the group seemed to take a dark and pessimistic view not only of our own country but the rest of the world as well. So Tom began to wonder Are Things Really That Bad?. If you think they are, then you might  be surprised to find out . . . well, check out his post to see if the world is really coming to an end.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer and personal finance journalist, writes about one of the latest scams: Callers claiming to be from Medicare are asking people for their Medicare numbers, Social Security numbers, and other personal information in exchange for DNA test kits. Don’t take the bait. Scammers can use your information, steal your identity, get credit in your name, and take your money.

I hope you enjoyed our Boomer blogs this weekend. See you next week with our regularly scheduled content!
