Baby Boomers come in all shapes, sizes, and interests.  That’s why any Baby Boomer round-up of posts is going to include a wide variety of posts.  Here’s the latest from my favorite group of boomers.  On any given week, we’re writing about what interests us and in these posts, you can see that the one thing we have in common is how different we are.

I hope you enjoyed this short round-up and visit all my blogging boomer buddies for some inspiration.
