Skip to main content & Team Up for Valentine's Day

I'm convinced that some men really need help when it comes to knowing how to please their mates on Valentine's Day. And I've decided to help them, along with some help from and a few hundred women.

This year I'm teaming up with to sponsor the First Annual Baby Boomer Valentine's Day Contest in which baby boomer women will be submitting their thoughts and ideas on what a man needs to do in order to sweep the love of his life off of her feet and give her the most romantic day imaginable.

The judges are five baby boomer men I selected at random. The only person I know in the group is a deacon at my church and I have to tell you, I chose him because of the relationship I have witnessed between him and his wife. The other judges were selected because we are all writers and are connected in one group or another on-line.

It should be interesting because you know we women tend to be very opinionated.

Is Valentine's Day only set aside for young lovers or do baby boomer babes like me get the honor and privilege of being showered with flowers, gifts, love, kisses and a fulfillment of a sexual fantasy? Has age caused us to put the romantic holiday aside because it's "just another day?" Or have we become too wrapped up in other personal or professional matters that we can't appreciate the love that we share?

I remember Valentine's Day when I was younger. The most beautiful gift I ever received was a heart shaped necklace that came from my first high school boyfriend. You know the kind that is split in two with both of your names on each half? It had such sentimental value because he was not the romantic type at all. The fact that took the time and went out to find a necklace like that for me meant more than words can express here. I kept it for many years.

These days I treasure the love I share with my second husband. He is all that I could ever want and more. He is my soul mate. Everyday is Valentine's Day with him and I thank God for the hook-up!

If I were entering the contest I would give this advice: Show your mate the same consistent, passionate love each and every day so she will tell her girlfriends, as I often do, that EVERYDAY is Valentine's Day in our home.

You can get all the details for the contest by going to my website and clicking on Valentine Contest and then submitting your entry to:

I might also add that there will be ten (10) winners selected with the GRAND PRIZE WINNER receiving a mini vacation package, courtesy of Sonshine Travel. Other sponsors include: Business Resources Podcast Directory, Women's E Commerce International, A Little Taste of Italy, Healthier, Tally Green & Gano Excel Healthy Coffee, Tasha Beckman & SendOutCards, The Secrets of Prosperity, etc.

I don't know about you but I'm glad to have lived long enough to appreciate what it means to truly love and to have that Special "I love you" Valentine feeling throughout the year.

This Survey Stinks for Baby Boomers

The majority of baby boomers do not wash their underwear enough!  That's what an online survey by Mulberry Cleaners revealed recently.  The results were published in Reader's Digest.

I have to admit I was very surprised to read the results, which indicated 16 percent of middle-aged folks reported NEVER washing their underwear.  Now, 16 percent may not sound like a large number but that's still 16 percent too many, in comparison to 85 percent of millennials who said they toss their undergarments in the laundry after one or two wears.  Only 10.3 percent of millennial women said they never washed theirs, which might make sense if these young women had parents who were enablers and never taught them to do much of anything, especially how to wash clothes.

When it comes to washing bed sheets, 43 percent of women said they wash them every week, compared to seven percent of men who said they had washed their sheets only once in six months.  But even worse than that is the fact th…

18 Years

During a recent trip to my doctor's office for my annual health check-up, I got news I'm not sure I thought I would ever hear.  "You can stop taking your carvedilol."  I'd been taking this medication for congestive heart failure.

My story of having congestive heart failure began 18 years ago around 2:30 in the morning.  I was lying in bed trying to sleep but I was having trouble breathing.  I was gasping for air.  I leaned over to my husband (ex) and told him how I was feeling and asked him to take me to the hospital.  He didn't move so I drove myself to the ER and ended up being admitted, where I stayed for 10 days.  Not only did I have to worry about getting better but I also had to be concerned about my 10-year-old daughter's welfare since she was now in the sole custody of her father, who was absent from the family more times than he was present.

Little did I know at the time just how sick I was.  I was already being treated for hyperthyroidism but th…

Survey says Christmas is about the Experience not the Gifts

If there's a survey out somewhere, you can believe I'll find it and share it----like this one on what Americans say they want for Christmas.

E-X-P-E-R-I-E-N-C-E!  Yes, according to a report released by IfOnly, an overwhelming 81 percent of respondents said they preferred an "experience" over any other type of gift.  

Okay, so the next question is, what kind of experience?  

39 percent said go on a helicopter tour
32 percent said go on a private tour of a museum
27 percent said pet a panda at the zoo

But get this:  36 percent of those who took the survey said they would rather spend the holiday with a wild animal than with their in-laws.

75 percent of Millennials said they would do anything in exchange for an incredible experience while nearly half of those surveyed said they would give up an hour of sleep for the entire holiday season to have an incredible experience instead of receiving a gift certificate.

And for those of you who have been complaining about lack of intimac…
