Laura Lee Carter, also known as the Midlife Crisis Queen, is this week’s host for the Blogging Boomer Carnival #277.

The carnival is a collection of like-minded blogs cooperating to share their best stories of interest to the Baby Boomer Generation.

For this week’s carnival as summer ends, boomer bloggers are writing about dessert travel, income equality, how the world is different today, meditation, the end of summer, Alzheimer’s disease, and falling in love at mid-life.

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 From 60, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures, So Baby Boomer, and Silver & Grace.
