There’s something about an old car that brings back a more innocent time….

….something I’ve been longing for, lately. Life wasn’t easy for many back in the day, but the kind of violent unrest we’re seeing now is disturbing and unprecedented in our lifetime. Even the 60s, which had its share of violent unrest, wasn’t this widespread. Although those protests were terrible and violent, too.

Maybe you can relate to Meryl’s belief that the events of the past week can not be ignored. Usually Meryl Baer of Beach Boomer Bulletin’s posts are non-political, but this week she could not overlook what our country is experiencing. Her thoughts are expressed in this week’s post Is this…who we are?

A different angle on the same subject from Rebecca: Have you ever been addicted to soap operas? Dallas and Falcon Crest were Rebecca Olkowski’s favorites. On  Baby Boomster, she writes about the cancellation of another big soap. The one we’ve all been watching for the last four years. Let’s hope it all ends well and that we can get back to being more productive.

But this is unrest I can enjoy: There’s a rumble happening. It’s mean and nasty and you can cut the air with a knife. It doesn’t help that Laurie Stone from Musings, Rants & Scribble’s Yorkie terrier is the instigator, getting everyone riled up and on edge. According to Libby there are too many birds on her back deck and even worse, they’re joined by the biggest freeloaders of all..

Boy, could we use a new vision! Jennifer, of Unfold and Begin, is a Vision Board Coach. And, since it’s that time of year when people start setting goals and creating vision boards for the year, she’s seen an increase in searches on her website. She created this Vision Board Question and Answer in order to address some of the most frequent questions/searches that are showing up.

Tom from Sightings Over Sixty realizes that at the beginning of the year we tend to assess our lives, wonder about the future — and it’s especially true this year when we’ve all been sitting around at home with too much time to think. So he offers some Questions to Ask Yourself to get started in 2021.

Quit while you ahead is good advice when you’re cutting your own hair, says Rita R. Robison, consumer and personal finance journalist. Since the pandemic began, Robison has cut her own hair twice. The first result was good; the second time, not so much.

As for me….as long as many of us are home and perhaps a little stressed out….I figure that the calming fragrances of my beautiful candles are in order now so I opened the order window just in time for Valentine’s Day. You can order them with Valentine embellishments or just the regular gorgeous stones and flowers, in a yummy scent or none at all. Gift yourself or someone else. See them here. Order window closes Jan 25 and I may not open orders again until spring, so consider stocking up.
