Boomers And Seniors Blog Carnival – March 17, 2009

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It’s a perfect day for us to head for a carnival. What’s that? Is it raining or snowing where you live? No worries. Our carnival is right here on the internet.

At the carnival you’ll find all sorts of information specific to Baby Boomers and Senior Citizens. You’ll find things to help you, to help your elderly relatives, and more. Let’s take a peek:

Michelle Seitzer of Seniors for Living has written a very interesting and timely article on the new stimulus package and how it will affect our elderly parents. There are good things to be found in the package, including a rebate that does NOT need any paperwork to be filed. Sadly, there are negative things in the package as well including some unpleasant changes to Medicare.

My Wealth Builder has an interesting article on going back to school when you are older. I never quit school until two years ago. That’s when I FINALLY finished my A.A. in Real Estate in my 50s! It was a great feeling. Right now, I’m busy learning a ton on the internet as I work on building this and other websites. Eventually, in my 60s or 70s, I may decide to go back for my B.A. if they’ll give me a senior discount.

If you love to travel, check out Donna Hull’s travel site, MyItchyFeet. She has excellent advice for the carnival on visiting your local travel clinic before going overseas. After you finish that article do a bit more exploring. You’ll find interesting travel stories and great pictures. My favorite is the cottage with the grass growing from the roof!

Dale Carter posted an article that I would recommend bookmarking for an excellent resource. It explains more about Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia symptoms, and how to help an aging parent who is suffering from dementia.

These are just a few of the many articles you can find at Seniors For Living . Other topics include Senior Care and Caregiving, Senior and Boomer Trends, Financial Issues, Health, and Wellness. So let’s all head on over and do some visiting and even leave some comments. As a matter of fact, I’d love it if you’d say a cheery green "Top O’ The Evening" in the comments below. 🙂

  1. Hi, thanks for visiting! I agree! It’s very encouraging for me as well. I’ve seen great progress since my grandparents. Hopefully my kids will say the same in 30 years 🙂 I know for me, the busier I stay, the healhier and happier I am 🙂

    I really enjoyed watching the psychedelic frogfish video at your site. I’m going to have to show it to my grandkids! 🙂


  2. Hi Veronica Lee, Thanks for popping by. I really enjoyed visiting at MomBloggers. They have such wonderful resources!

    I loved your Wordless Wednesday pix. I’m going to “visit” there with my grandkids! They’ll love it. Especially the last pix – 🙂 🙂 🙂


  3. I’m always glad to see how active older people can be!
