The Birth of the Baby Boom Generation!

All baby boomers began their lives as babies ... we all have pictures like these hidden in the closet, long forgotten ... mine just happens to be fifty-five years old! I know, some of you "young folks" will ask, "Mommy, did they really have cameras back then in the olden days"?

Well, darn skippy, they did!

I was born in 1953 and that puts me smack dab in the middle of what the public calls the Baby Boom Generation. Believe it or not, there are over 78 million of us in the United States alone and it is essential that someone speak our wants, concerns and needs.

The questions we have are many and the "techno" age has placed us in an environment that requires we learn new information. We need to know how to get this information, or we get left behind in the dust.

Retirement, finances, computers, cellphones, aging parents, boomerangs, social networking ... OH MY ..... ! The list is endless. It is enough to send a girl right over the edge into permanent a "mental pause".

This is a new adventure folks and we ARE the people our parents warned us about! Let's take this journey together and discover everything you need to know about this wild and sometimes crazy Baby Boomers generation.
