Hey Mr Glen

John Agno at SoBabyBoomer tells us that exercise stimulates body tone, sending minerals to your muscles, skin, organs, blood vessels and other body parts.

After six years of blogging, Laura Lee Carter aka the Midlife Crisis Queen happened onto one of her original posts from 2007.  It reminded her why she started blogging in the first place: Telling the Truth about Midlife.

Not a day goes by that we don’t hear a report about the many benefits of eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, and obtaining enough sleep. However, a new study posted at Modern Senior has revealed just how important sleep is to preventing degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer’s. Find out how the brain changes during rest and why humans need sleep in the first place.  It might just be enough to get you to  bed early tonight.

On The Surviveand Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison writes about Social Security benefits. The majority of retired Baby Boomers – 65 percent – currently rely on Social Security benefits, and nearly one-third say they wouldn’t be able to live comfortably in retirement without them, according to a survey. However, determining when to signup for Social Security can be complicated. 

Karen at The Generation Above Me reviews a contemporary novel The Night Guest that features a 75-year-old protagonist. Does the author, Fiona McFarlane, err when she elaborates on the nightmares we all have about aging? Or does she create a meaningful cautionary tale for older adults? 



  1. What a great group you have assembled @Karen! Recongnize many of these authors

  2. Shelley: This is a group Laura Lee Carter put together. I'm just a happy little minion. It's fun to read everyone's blogs every week. And I confess: I like looking for pictures the week it's my turn to host.

  3. Nice job on the Best of Boomer Blogs.


  4. Some good stuff, but the link to the Modern Senior website brought me up short. Is there a trick? Thx!

  5. Tom: It worked when I first published the piece on Monday and tested all the links--as I always do before notifying people via Twitter / FB about a new post. I'll just now "googled" her blog's title and got the same error message when trying to click through. I also tried to click through on her url listed with her Twitter account; same error. I'll email Amy for insight.
