Even though I was on vacation this week, it didn’t stop me from catching up with my favorite boomers.  They’re an eclectic bunch and their blog posts are always very interesting.  So please sit back and enjoy a pumpkin latte and read these posts from my fellow bloggers.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about what to do with feta cheese. Under a grocery store special shopper program, she was rewarded with up a free container. Read about what happened when she found it in the back of the refrigerator after her company left six weeks later.

Rebecca Olkowski with BabyBoomster.com got a chance to interview former NFL quarterback and sports announcer Terry Bradshaw. He is the spokesman for the “All About Your Boom ™” campaign to spread awareness about pneumococcal pneumonia. Dr. William Gruber, a VP of Vaccine Clinical Research at Pfizer weighs in with facts every Baby Boomer should know about this debilitating disease. Make sure to listen in to the audio portion because Terry Bradshaw is a funny guy.

Tom Sightings goes back to school this week for his volunteer jobs. In Fishing For Answers, he reveals some of what goes on behind the scenes and then offers a few ideas — some serious, some a little tongue-in-cheek — for how to improve our educational system.

Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting could not resist putting in her two cents on one of the controversial issues raging across the country this week. Hint: it is NOT about Trump, Congress or the Kavanaugh melodrama. Read about her thoughts on a totally different topic in The Loveable Bert and Ernie.

Texting is part of 21st-century life. It’s probably a generational thing, but to Carol Cassara over at Heart-Mind-Soul, it can feel a bit cold and distant. She’s airing some of her own advice about when to text and when not to in her post When To Text.

Lately, Sue Loncaric from Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond has been contemplating life and why we sometimes feel pressure to follow what others are doing, rather than appreciating the good things about ourselves.  She suggests that it’s time to value and celebrate our own story – because we all have one!  Each of us has a story to tell, although many of us might feel that our story is boring.  However, to others, it is fascinating because it is the story of YOU.  Your story is a tapestry of your life, who influenced you, the challenges you faced as well as the good times.   Read more about the #ToEachHerOwn Campaign – Why it’s important to share & celebrate your story.

And if you haven’t read it yet, then please enjoy A New Way To Express Her Creativity to read about what one woman did when injuries stopped her from sharing her creativity through dance.  She felt a need to find a new creative outlet.
