Read a blog post for…the year 2030?
After the upheavals we are all experiencing this year, politically and personally, no one knows what will happen in the future. But we can daydream, and that is what Meryl Baer of Beach Boomer Bulletin did this week. She wrote her predictions about our country a decade down the road in her post A Forecast: My Column on January 1, 2030.
Freedom to read at risk!
Jennifer of Unfold and Begin shared that it was Banned Books Week. It’s sponsored by the American Library Association to bring awareness to the threat against our freedom to read. She shares links to challenged books lists and a reminder that if you don’t like a book, then don’t read it. But please don’t try to tell someone else that they cannot read it.
Positivity in action
Rebecca Olkowski with BabyBoomster.com is thinking positively. She is planning a group trip to the Countryside of Ireland in October 2021 and would love ou to join her. She is hosting an informational Zoom meeting on Oct 27 at 11 AM PST with a representative with Collette Travel, if you want to know more. You can register here.
She also moved again, the 2nd time during the pandemic! Finally, she wanted to share a recipe for Delicata Squash with Gouda Cheese perfect for October.
Toxic ingredients now banned
Twenty-four toxic ingredients, including mercury and formaldehyde, are now banned from cosmetics and personal care products in California, Rita R. Robison, consumer and personal finance journalist, writes. If a manufacturer is required to satisfy California standards, it will likely adhere to the same high standard with the products it sends to the rest of the country.
