#1 Best Seller: Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age

On November 16, I will be launching a campaign to take my book, Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age to the#1 spot on Amazon.com

Of course in order to do this, I'm going to need your help. Why YOUR help, you ask? Well, for one reason....The book is GOOD! Reason # 2: The book is FUNNY! Reason #3: The book is INFORMATIVE Reason #5: LET'S PROVE TO THE LITERARY WORLD THAT UNKNOWN, SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHORS CAN BE SUCCESSFUL.

My book talks about the "journey" and the "celebration" into another phase of a woman's life. It comes complete with hot flashes, weight gain, middle age dating, sex over 40 and so on and so forth.

So over the next 16 days, I will provide snippets from the book and answer ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS you may have about menopause, middle age dating, sex over 40, how to handle PMS in the house when you're having a hot flash and I promise I will keep it real :)

OK...Here's reason #1 why you should purchase a copy of Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age on November 16:

Excerpt from Chapter One

Have the seven dwarfs of menopause come knocking at your door yet? If you're not sure, please allow me to make the introductions. There's Sweaty, Bloated, Forgetful, Bitchy, Itchy, Sleepy and All Dried Up. They don't all show up at once, but you can rest assured they will come in, unannounced, and definitely uninvited, and yes, they will wear out their welcome!

These little menaces to society bring night sweats, headaches, fatigue, forgetfulness, muscle and joint pain, urinary incontinence, heart palpitations, anxiety, depression, yeast infections and vaginal dryness into our lives.

According to my gynecologist, over time we may even start to lose our desire for sex. I don't know how you feel about that, but I surely hope it doesn't happen to me because I'd hate to think I wasted the BEST years of my sex life on my ex!!!

Peace & Blessings,

You Can't Look Pretty and Exercise

While I was out this morning, I ran into a few women, around my age, who were rather well dressed.  One had on a beautiful necklace with matching earrings; another had The Tammy Faye Baker look (face caked with make-up) and another had on a nice pantsuit.  I spoke to each one as I passed them individually but then I thought to myself, "Where the hell do they think they are?!"  WE'RE EXERCISING, for God's sake!

Yes, while I was out doing my morning walk/run around the Duke Wall (1.6 miles in distance), I noticed these other "mature" women out doing, what I thought, was the same thing.  But based on the way they were dressed, perhaps they were just taking a morning stroll.  Now that would make total sense if we were in a park setting----but the Duke Wall is a gravel, rugged, sandy track and when the maintenance crew is in the area working you're sure to get some of that dirt blown on your face and body.

I do know there are older women who won't dare ste…

The Power of Prayer from a Child's Perspective

The other day my 11-year-old grandson and I were talking about a variety of things and the subject of prayer came up.  I asked him if he thought he would make the Shrine Bowl (a football game where the best players in his age group from NC are selected to compete against the best players from SC).

His response:  "Not really because I knew I was competing against kids all over the state.  I thought I was good but maybe not better than some other players."

I asked him if he prayed about it.  He said he did.  I then asked him if he prayed everyday until he found out if he made the team.  He said, "No, I just prayed once to ask God to let me make the shrine bowl team."

I asked him why he only prayed once.  His response:  "Because that's all it takes.  God heard me the first time."

Now I have to tell you I was totally floored by his response!  They say out of the mouths of babes......

And then what did he do until he got the official word?  He continued t…

A New Survey Says Millennials Blame Baby Boomers for Their Troubles and They Should

OK--I've got a new survey to report to you---this one courtesy of Axios and Survey Monkey.

Millennials say baby boomers are to blame for ruining their lives and guess what?  I happen to agree with them despite the fact that I am a member of the baby boomer generation.  

Fifty-one percent of millennials say boomers have made things worst for their generation.  Not only are they in debt from student loans but they also inherited two wars and they face an uncertain job future with speculation that artificial intelligence may replace some jobs they would vie for in their future.  

Baby boomers, on the other hand, don't appear to be trying to leave the job market anytime soon unless they're FORCED out so with retirement age being as late as age 70, boomers can still be collecting a nice paycheck right up until the end.  

No doubt about it, the boomer generation has been a greedy generation.  They have controlled Congress and and been the CEO's of the major corporations in Ameri…
