Blogging Boomers Carnival #50

Wow. BBC 50. How can a year have come and gone so quickly? Well, it is my honor (honour for my Canadian, UK and Oz readers!) to be this week’s host site for the Blogging Boomers Carnival and bring you the last Carnival for 2007! When we started posting, in carnival format, last year, we didn’t know what would happen. Most of the original group are still here (and still in fine form) and we’ve added in a few other fantastic bloggers to our carnival over the year. If you’ve never enjoyed a carnival before, then you are in for a treat this week. Lots of delicious posts from some of the most interesting, informed, and invested boomer bloggers around. Click on the links and see what is being written about. If you like a particular blogger, why not subscribe to their feed and get to know them even better? Here goes — in no particular order:

Don’t Gel Yet takes a peek at Manhattan travel costs and idiosyncrasies around the holidays. More smart-aleck than anything else…so enjoy it!

Life Two tells us that at times it may drive you crazy, but according to researchers, marriage can make you smarter.

With the Holiday season upon us, The Wastrel Show reminds us that getting back to basics just may be the low- cost alternative to gift giving we need right now.

Your Drum has a humorous video that pokes fun at baby boomers set to “Born To be Wild.” You’ll have a chuckle and sadly, wonder how much of it is true.

Can you believe that Dustin Hoffman turned 70 this year? How about Loretta ‘Hot Lips Houlihan’ Swit? Or Bill Cosby? Head over to Contemporary Retirement to see who else turned 70 in 2007 and to see if you can tell who’s had a little ‘work’ done and who hasn’t…

If you’re planning on asking Santa for a little bling bling this Christmas then hop on over to Fabulous after 40, where The Glam Gals have all the news about the hottest trends in fine jewelry.

Despite boomers’ claims of wanting to help society, is it possible most would rather retire to a life of travel and golf? So Baby Boomer sets us straight!

If you just can’t get enough…did you know that there are a ton of websites dedicated solely to baby boomers? The Boomer Chronicles tells you all about them.

And finally, in Gen Plus news, two important items this past week — the first is the excitement in the air over the Kelly Services pilot program with Gen Plus, targeting the 50 plus jobseeker; and second, an exciting and important survey in collaboration with EONS.

On behalf of all the Blogging Boomers, happy belated Chanukah, a Merry Christmas, festive holidays to all and a happy, happy New Year!
