There was a woman who did not appreciate her mate, relationship and family. She just did not want to grow older and did all she could to escape. Now, yes this is fiction but this old movie still has some biting relevance to the complexity of relationships. The interesting thing is how much her baby boomer husband knew about forgiveness.
I simply love old movies and was able to view and enjoy this one tonight while preparing for a blog training. So, I share it with you. Tell me what you think. The movie is called Dodsworth.
Ok, this baby boomer now has a serious goal, live long life and keep going strong. Of course this is rather unusual so yes, I am glad to live what ever life God grants me and live it to the fullest.
I just read this story about a woman who is 107 years old in Newark, NJ. She is from Georgia, just like my mom. So, of course before I posted this I spoke to my 82 year old mom and shared the highlights. We all need encouraging.
I also hope that her senior housing complex has a full time social worker. They have been missing on a full time basis in Newark Housing complexes for a while now. Caregiving families need the advice and support when trying to keep their loved one OUT OF a nursing home for as long as they can.
This woman does have good support with her grandchildren. And it is a good reminder to us all to talk with our families to share in the support needed in caregiving. Of course I read it wishing I had had children to help me in providing support for my mom. But God has been good and when I have strength and a great homemaker life can rock.
My friend and fellow baby boomer, The WordPress Wizard, Cathy Perkins is starting yet another workshop series. She is really, I mean really knows her stuff. I have learned a lot from her and still learning.
So listen now to her description of the workshop in her own words. It’s short and you can start it by clicking on the play button at the beginning of the blue bar. If you get interrupted by a phone call just click on pause.

Chapter 1. Gathering
The blank screen
You have an advertising assignment of some sort. If you’re sitting with a blank computer screen and struggling about what to do, stop. There’s a better way.
To start with, forget that daunting assignment for a while. Instead, gather facts that will interest and inform your audience. And hey, take it easy. This gathering process won’t stress you at all. Rather than grappling for the right words, you can turn the radio on, muse about good things, and — oh, yeah — collect information.
Yes, according to Aol’s special report there are still jobs out there. Read this article I just saw featuring CVS. As you read further you will see a list of other companies and the job titlad es available.
Of course there are probably more so if you have access and information please share. As baby boomers many of us just cannot retire right now. Hence, we are still looking for jobs when we get downsized, fired or just need to improve our benefits.
There are lots of ways to find out the weather report. You can put an RSS feed on your desktop, on your toolbar and you can click on the weather channel on your TV. But another quick way is to just put in the phase “weather for (name of your city)” directly into Google.
For example, we plan to walk early Sat. morning and I just do not do rain very well. So I just keyed in the statement above. It gave me the entire weather report for the week.
Now, someone is saying, “Why bother to post this tidbit?” And my answer is “Because I am a baby boomer who never thinks any empowering information is minor or that everyone knows it.”
So let me get ready for my walk just in case the weather report is wrong. This boomer is going to get fit this year. Besides, how will I ever get Tina Turner legs unless I work at it. Ha!
