The Summer Reading Issue I don’t know about you, but no matter what the weather, I love to spend my free time reading and writing. When I was a kid, my mother would spend a good part of the summer trying to pry me away from my books, urging me to “go outside and play.” And play we did: My friends and I played tennis, softball, and swam. We rode our bicycles, and just “hung out.” And of course, I went to camp – my favorite camp years were the two where I went to “horse camp,” where we got to spend a good part of each day learning how to care for... (Read More ...)

As April Ends It’s Time to Use Our “Outside Voices” – We Must Speak Up to Protect Our Rights April is flying by – fast. We’ve already had Passover, Easter, Tax Day and Earth Day. The “next big thing” is the “We Are Women March,” set for this weekend: Saturday, April 28th. If you haven’t yet heard about this event, it will be big: Women everywhere are relocating their voices and marching in every state capital, including DC, displaying their non-partisan unity in an effort to tell our legislators “Enough is enough!” If... (Read More ...)

2012’s In High Gear, Are You? We’re well into 2012. It’s already February. Which means that a few resolutions have been broken, the Super Bowl is a memory, and the star-studded new song and dance show Smash, NBC’s answer to the Fox Network’s megahit Glee, has finally aired its first episode, after having been promoted for months…. I’m not a resolution maker, but I do try to set goals at the beginning of each year. Some of them are small, like clear the paper piles off my desk so that I have a nice clean space to work in. For that one, I was inspired by the quote... (Read More ...)

Love * Peace * Joy * Happiness * Gratitude My wish for you now and throughout the New Year is that these are woven into the fabric of your days. I believe that if we experience even one of them, we are rich, and richly blessed. I took great care with selecting the quotes for this issue. All of them inspire me, and I hope they will you, as well. I’m not sure which might be my favorite, but as a constellation, I plan to use them to guide me in leading the NABBW in the coming year. So please be sure not to overlook them! Please enjoy this issue. It’s been my pleasure to helm the... (Read More ...)

Hot News Topics for October 2011: Steve Jobs, Herman Cain, the Cardinals 11th World Series Win, And… Wow! October is just about gone. When you think about its highlights, most certainly Steve Jobs’ death, Herman Cain’s campaign antics and the St Louis Cardinal’s amazing perseverance to win their 11th World Series title would have to be top of mind. Of course, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, as was heavily promoted by more corporations than we can count. Given all that, you might think that all that’s left for the month is the Halloween parties and trick or... (Read More ...)

Hot, Hot Hot! It’s Late Summer! Welcome to another information-packed issue of Boomer Women’s World. It’s suddenly August and the weather continues to be hot and stormy here in the Midwest. Earlier this week, our little corner of the world experienced an intense rain. Water, water everywhere.We had somewhere between twelve and fifteen inches of rain fall in twelve hours. Much of it coming down in the first three hours. Thankfully my basement is only a little damp, and no harm came to us physically. Not everyone was so lucky. Many roads and homes were destroyed by this storm, and... (Read More ...)
