The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide is now one year old!
It’s been an amazing year. It’s fun to do research and writing about baby boomers.
I’ve learned so much. And I’ve “met” so many interesting and wonderful people who’ve read my blog and given me tips and feedback.
After 288 posts and 271 comments about boomers, we’ve been able to create the conversation place that I’d hoped for. Thank you so much for your interest and support.
To celebrate the first anniversary of this blog, I’d like to share with you some of the comments I’ve received from readers. That’s what blogging is all about; learning and interacting in this new world-wide communication era.
Here are readers’ comments:

- You do a great job of breaking down this decision [on purchasing windows] into its integral parts. Many times the wrong window is selected because people don't know what to exactly look for; but if the steps you outlined are followed, the proper window can be selected with ease. Utah Windows
- Totally! I've been using acupuncture for years. The first time I ever had a treatment, I had suffered with chronic pain for years. One treatment and it was gone forever! I love acupuncture and recommend it to everyone. Rhea
- This is a helpful post [on finding a qualified provider for testing and fitting before you buy a hearing aid] as was the earlier one on hearing loss. This gave me some insight as to why my mom had such a difficult time with the hearing aids she was given. She never took the time to retrain the brain. Mary
- Great tips [on flattening your belly instantly]. I've (almost) given up diet soda, although I fall off the wagon two to three times a month, but I used to be a two-diet coke a day consumer. And I find peppermint tea soothing. Beth
- Being amongst the oldest Boomers myself I was delighted to discover your blog. Although I live in England, we post War babies are facing the same challenges wherever we live. Thanks for relating your daughter's home exchange experiences and also for drawing attention to the tips from the Independent Traveler. I have been running Home Base Holidays from London since 1985... Cheers, Lois Sealey
Thanks again for your support. I'm looking forward to more exciting boomer consumer research, writing, and conversation.
