Spirituality, travel, and insurance are the topics for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs

I’m the host for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs #319.

Garden at Rita's 2013The 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 approach the last leg of summer, which includes my bountiful garden, baby boomer bloggers are writing about spiritual growth, places to visit, and consumer studies.

Is there any scientific evidence to substantiate the stereotype that people grow more spiritual as they age? Karen Austin at The Generation Above Me summarizes the results of a 40-year study that not only found age differences but gender differences in spirituality. 

Laura Lee of the Midlife Crisis Queen just saw a PBS special called "The Buddha," which inspired her to write: “What I Have Learned From the Buddha." 

John Agno at So Baby Boomer tells us that to highlight the 250th anniversary of the building of historic Johnson Hall and the development of its surrounding estate, the state of New York historic site north of Albany will present special interpretive walking tours during the 2013 season.

Tom Sightings of Sightings Over Sixty went to the beach last week for a midsummer respite from the heat. He's been home now for a few days, which has led him to reflect on “How You Know Your Vacation Is Over.”

On my blog, I wrote about a Consumer Federation of America analysis, which showed that half of the largest auto insurers are charging high school graduates and blue-collar workers higher rates.

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