It’s that time again, time to catch up with some Boomers who love to blog. So exactly what are the blogging boomers up to this month?

Sometimes you just have to stand up and be counted… Carol Cassara thinks that’s part of our obligation as human beings and blogs about it often. She talks about one important way to stand up in this week’s post.

Labor Day sales are underway so compare prices to see if you can find a deal, advises Rita R. Robison, consumer, and personal finance journalist. Look for bargains on clothing for the whole family, grills, appliances, patio furniture, and more.

Isn’t it wonderful when you discover something that takes you out of this often-scary world? This happened when Laurie stumbled upon Pickleball, the new sports craze. Picture badminton, ping pong, and tennis all at once while you smack a fist-sized whiffle ball back and forth across a net with paddles. By doing this, she discovered three wonderful things.

Rebecca Olkowski, with BabyBoomster.com played hooky the other day and took off to visit the Broad Museum in downtown Los Angeles to see a special exhibit of the work of Takashi Murakami. His work really takes you into a whole other worldTake a peek at what she saw here.

A chance encounter nearly 35 years ago changed the life of one small boy—and us, his parents. Now, the legacy lives on. Fortunately, this legacy is not unique to our Tolley family circle but can be found throughout the world. Sometimes you just have to look for it!

Bucket lists have become a popular device to define what we want to do with the rest of our life. Meryl Baer of Beach Boomer Bulletin considered, in this week’s post, one item on her list, but realized it wasn’t meant to be. 

I hope you enjoy this round of Boomer posts.
