It’s that time of year. Spring is in the air. Temperatures are slowly (ever so slowly) starting to warm up, and I want to share a bouquet of blogging boomers.

As much as Laurie Stone from Musings, Rants & Scribble’s heart still grieves over CNN’s late travel and food host, Anthony Bourdain, she’s slowly starting to heal. She may even have fallen for a new man. Like Anthony, this guy walks and talks and rolls his eyes in ecstasy at the many culinary delights he encounters. Yes, Stanley Tucci’s “Searching for Italy” is just what she needed.

Rebecca Olkowski, with BabyBoomster.com has been thinking about food. She attended a summit on Osteoporosis a while back where she and over 50 influencers took a cooking class. They made a recipe for Salmon Cakes with Cucumber Cooler Dip. It’s not only delicious but is bone-healthy as well. Try it, you’ll like it.

Have you had an old image or video from the past cross your screen that hit you just where you needed it? Carol Cassara shares just such an experience, one that reminded her to be fully alive and in the moment in her post, Choose Life, in All Its Messy Glory.

Adhering to a regular exercise routine has been challenging for Meryl Baer of Beach Boomer Bulletin. She always finds exercising a challenge, but more so during COVID-19. She found a Zoom class that works, sort of, and had to purchase modestly priced exercise equipment for the workout. She describes her new items in Exercise – the good, the bad, and the heavy.

Most people who join legitimate multilevel marketing programs make little or no money, an article on Rita R. Robison Consumer and Personal Finance Journalist warns. Some of them lose money. It may be difficult for consumers to tell the difference between an MLM and an illegal pyramid scheme. People who get caught up in pyramid schemes usually lose everything they invest. Some also end up deeply in debt.

It seems that all we’ve heard in the last few years is bad news and more bad news — about climate change, race relations, the economy, the pandemic. But this week Tom at Sightings Over Sixty takes a look at some overarching facts about the current state of affairs and offers a better perspective on our world today. So If you want to know what’s really going on take a look at It’s Not as Bad as You Think.

I hope you enjoyed this bouquet I picked for you.
