Read about walking tours, boomer financial woes, gay pride, and great local produce on Blogging Boomer Carnival #264

By Rita R. Robison

This week’s Blogging Boomer Carnival is hosted by Sightings From 60.

IMG_7272Take a look at the weekly roundup of boomer articles on a variety of topics including new Dubai walking tours, the top four boomer financial worries, a Gay Pride parade in Olympia, Wash., and wonderful local carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, pink and white beets, garlic, red romaine, bibb lettuce, and broccoli.

Baby boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are America’s largest age group so far, and a dynamic group they are.

Boomers are leading corporations, serving as governmental officials, heading up non-profits, worrying about retirement, and experiencing layoffs at a higher rate than younger workers. They’re also reinventing themselves in trying economic times, with some looking for their dream jobs to keep them happy in retirement.

At each stage in their lives, boomers have changed things. They’re continuing to make America different as they begin entering into their retirement years.

In addition to The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, members of the Blogging Boomer Carnival are: The Accidental Locavore, The Midlife Crisis Queen, Sightings at 60, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures, So Baby Boomer, Vaboomer, Empty House Full Mind, and Witty Woman Writing.
