This week’s Best of Boomer Blogs offers information on travel, resilience, investments, positive living, and corporate settlements

I’m the host for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs #296.

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

As we experience the last throws of winter, boomer bloggers have a lot on their minds.

Tom Sightings of Sightings Over Sixty just got home from his Snowbird trip to Florida. In his article, “It Drives Me Crazy,” he relates some of his experiences on the road. Hint: Stay away from Washington, D.C.

Laura Lee Carter, of the Midlife Crisis Queen, writes that perhaps you didn't know, but you have the option to become more optimistic at any age, and there are many benefits. Let Laura Lee teach you what she's learned about the Science of Optimism and Resilience.

MosqueThis week the United Arab Emirates newspapers reported that users of TripAdvisor ranked the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque No. 16 on the list of the top most talked about attractions in the world. It joins the ranks of such iconic global sites as Sydney Harbor, the Coliseum in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and Central Park in New York City. Arabian Tales Katie Foster explains what makes this mosque so special.

John Agno at So Baby Boomer warns market perversity is on display, as both boomer bulls and bears are suffering their own special water torture.

Sara Cornell of Blue Blinds Media talks about the importance of staying focused on the present in the article “The Present Tense.”

On my blog, I let consumers know about two big corporate settlements:

Transocean Deepwater Inc. pleaded guilty to a violation of the Clean Water Act for its illegal conduct leading to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster and was sentenced to pay $400 million in criminal fines and penalties.

After nearly five years of litigation, a settlement was announced on behalf of investors totaling $688 million in class actions against Merck & Co. Inc., Schering-Plough Corp., and Merck/Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals.

Be sure to stop by again next week to see what our baby boomer bloggers are writing about.
