Blogging Boomers Carnival #58

It's my turn to host the Blogging Boomers Carnival this week -- a collection of interesting, insightful blogger musings from our intrepid group of Blogging Boomers!

So Baby Boomer focuses on the notable differences between Generation X and Baby Boomers values. As a generation in the workplace, they have spent their lives managing their own small sphere of influence. Are they now ready to take on a leadership role as boomers depart for retirement?

There is no arguing the importance of brain health. LifeTwo has collected every post they've ever done on the
subject here.

Remember secretarial schools? Are they a thing of the past? The Boomer Chronicles wants to know.

Don't Gel Yet has this to offer: Visiting Jerusalem, thinking about the relationship between men and women in the city — and in observant Judaism. Perplexing but interesting questions I think.

Worried about your weekly grocery bill? The Wastrel Show brings us info on what families around the world are paying to keep food on their tables. You don't want to miss this.

From I Remember JFK: The Beatles' Rooftop Concert: In 1969, the dream wasn't over, but the closing credits were playing. However, as is frequently the case in the movie theater, the music that was playing during the closing credits was pretty wonderful stuff.

How many miles do you need to cover during the course of a day in order to be able to call yourself 'active'? Head over to Contemporary Retirement to find out.

Want to see one of the best Boomer Makeovers the Glam Gals have ever seen? Then visit Fabulous after 40 for before and after photos, and get top beauty tips from Oprah’s Make-over Guy Christopher Hopkins.

And over at Gen Plus, I stirred up a bit of discussion with "Find Someone Doing Something Right...Please" on how to stay on the top of your game at 50 plus.
