Jobs, cell phones, federal finances, and holiday happiness are topics for this week’s Blogging Boomer Carnival

Tom Sightings at Sightings from 60 is this week’s host for the Blogging Boomer Carnival #288.

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

For the first December carnival, baby boomer bloggers are writing about happier holidays, job losses in communities, the fiscal cliff, and a survey of cell phone companies.

Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, 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 Midlife Crisis Queen, Sightings From 60, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures, So Baby Boomer, and Vaboomer.
