Today I had an engaging and empowering discussion with a fellow motivational speaker, Donna Satchell about blogging. We motivated each other by discussing some cool tips and techniques and then she asked. “Rosie, do you want some great online training?” I had just decided this morning that I wanted to pump up some of my skills in Outlook and Excel so I shouted, YES.
So she shared with me a site that can be used when you have some evening down time, scheduled training time or even while recovering from work, illness or retirement. The site is called Learn Free and is produced by the wonderful folks at the Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC.
Now you probably have the same question I had “What’s the catch?”
So, I looked for the “catch” and here it is right on their website under the section on Support was a Frequently Asked Question about how they were able to offer these classes free. The answer is below:
Have you ever thought about what Goodwill does with the proceeds from their retail stores? When you donate your gently-used items to Goodwill, you are supporting programs that provide education, employment, and life enrichment opportunities for people in your community.
GCFLearnFree.org® is one such program of Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC, Inc.®, based in Eastern North Carolina. The funds raised through the Goodwill Stores make GCFLearnFree.org possible, not only for the residents of Eastern North Carolina, but for people all around the world!
So if you are a baby boomer that wants to Learn Baby Learn check out Learn Free. And, if you want, there is a well deserved opportunity to donate to the organization in appreciation.
I just read a post from one of the busiest baby boomers I know about cooking roasted broccoli. Now this baby boomer, Heidi Caswell, is not a professional chef and does not cook for a living. But in her living she cooks for family and friends. I hope that made sense. You see, I know Heidi as an entrepreneur, super blogger and blogging mechanic.
I say mechanic because if your blog is broke she helps you fix it. If you need blog training she will train you. And if you want to send a special card to a love one she will help you do that also.But in t he midst of her busyness she finds time to work her other passions.
So, take a few minutes to explore two of her blogs. The first one to grab her insights on roasting broccoli on her blog Boomer Empowerment. And if you want to see some great videos and glean gems on the art of blogging visit WordPress101.
And if you want to make that very special connection that goes beyond the text send that special recipe to a friend in a card. Visit Connect Simply.
Now, I must say that Heidi did not endorse this message and I only decided to post about it on impulse and impression after seeing her Facebook post about the vegetables in her garden. I was actually in between a marathon posting on Ebay and looking at the post about the recipe was a true boomer break.
I guess what I am learning more and more is that we must take time to explore our passions. And since I am a baby boomer I am not surprised.

Many of us may see our oral health as a part of our Diabetes health and management. For some of us the Dental visit is only for dentures, implants or when that tooth hurts. Yet, more and more research is showing that the health of our mouth can be an indicator of other health issues like Diabetes.
Many baby boomers may also ignore the need to make sure their current dentures fit properly. But poor fitting dentures can wreck havoc for the baby boomer diabetic. Here is a short video on dental care and diabetes.
As many of you already know Diabetes results when he body does no produce enough insulin. learn more abou Diabetes by clicking his link. As baby boomers our risk for developing the disease increases with age. One report on health and baby boomers projected that one in four baby boomers will be living with Diabetes.
I want to share two articles on oral health and Diabetes that you can review for your self or a loved one. One is from the Centers for Disease and Control and another from Colgate-Palmolive Company
I know I have a lot of links to articles in this one post. However, I encourage you to grab a cup of of your best low sugar beverage, relax and read all of them. As Baby Boomers we must do all we can to keep vital, healthy and purposeful. There is just too much for us to do. Don’t you agree?
