Here in California, we moved our clocks back as we move closer to winter – Fall Back – Spring Forward. Daylight savings always messes with your head. My dogs are completely confused. We’ve all been waking up realizing it’s still the middle of the night. And, of course, the times have been a-changin’ too. But somehow, it’s reminiscent of when we were young, angry, and idealistic. Our Baby Boomer bloggers have been writing about some of this in their blogs. Or, are finding ways to deal with it.

All you need is love
Have you heard about the book, “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman? To Laurie Stone of Musings, Rants & Scribbles, they at first sounded corny, but the more she read about them, the more she found them intriguing.

The sounds of silence
Enjoying a morning cup of coffee or chamomile tea as the evening winds down. Reading a book or writing in a journal before bed. Chanting OM at the end of a yoga class. All are rituals. Rituals are usually associated with spiritual or religious ceremonies, but they are also a part of everyday life. Jennifer, of Unfold And Begin, asks the question: What Rituals Do You Love?
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
On the Boomer Consumer, Rita R. Robison recommends readers take a look at an article on five ways to stretch your money this holiday season. By Mike Thomas, a guest financial journalist on her blog, among the suggestions are having one or two large holiday parties and pooling resources, using discount gift cards, shopping at the dollar store, and signing up with Groupon.
