This week’s Blogging Boomer Carnival features information on love, bargains, banking, and healthy eating


By Rita R. Robison

Ann Maxfield of the Accidental Locavore is the host of this week’s Blogging Boomer Carnival #268.

The carnival features information on finding love at 50-plus, enjoying bargains at dollar stores, examining the history of polka dots, banking fraud, cutting down on meat in the diet, and cooking corn on the cob.

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, and Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures.
