Preserve your Memories with Drugs, Baby Boomers

I was driving home after dropping my daughter off at school and heard an ad on the radio for something called "MemoProve." During the commercial the announcer guaranteed that folks who fear they're losing their memory could benefit greatly from taking these pills. They're also apparently giving away FREE samples and an 800 number was repeated three times. This baby boomer certainly wasn't going to rely on her brain cells to remember it. So where is a pen when I need it?

When I got home I went online to see if I could find additional details about this "MemoProve." According to a statement on their website, “MemoProve is the first and only once-a-day tablet clinically shown to boost Memory, Alertness and Concentration with a patented blend of Neuropeptides. You'll see and feel the difference in 30 days or your money back.”

We baby boomers did come of age during the Drugs, Sex & Rock-n-Roll Era so why not pop a few more pills for old time sake?

My question is: Are we baby boomers that desperate to preserve our memories? I don't know about you but I have several memories--like an ex husband, terrible bosses and a weekend at Disney World---that I'd much rather forget!

I have this image of you driving down the road, desperately searching for a pen and forgetting where you're going, lol.
I have memories I'd like to forget too, but those aren't the ones I do forget! Now why is it the bad stuff leaves such an impression??? LOL.

Millennials Want Their Own Day

In case you haven't heard the news, there's a online petition encouraging the man they call the President of the U.S. to establish a National Millennials Day.

Self-proclaimed millennial leaders James Goodnow and Ryan Avery want to establish June 19 as a day for Generation Y to dispel the FAKE NEWS being spread about them.  They say they simply want to show those of us who have labeled them as "entitled" selfish" lazy" "narcissistic" (and other choice adjectives) that they can be important contributors to society.  Their "vision is to make National Millennials Day a day of service--a day when they reach out and help others in their communities.

 According to their website,, organizers say "With National Millennials Day, we want to turn the stereotypes inside--out.  To show that we're more GENERATION WE than Generation ME. To transform ideals into actions.  To inspire hope for the future.  To celebrate the most open…

The Tragedy and Illusion of Facebook

"Things aren't always the way they appear."  No truer words could be spoken following the tragic death of Karen Smith in San Bernardino, CA this week.  She was murdered on her job---in a classroom where she was teaching young students.

What intrigued me about this story was the fact that she and her husband killer, Cedric Anderson were black baby boomers around the same age as my husband and myself.  I was particularly interested in the posts he made on Facebook.  By all accounts, he posted regularly on Facebook about the so-called love and admiration he had for his wife.  He created an image that was clearly contrary to the murderous behavior he demonstrated when he walked into her classroom and killed her.

In a February 27th post, he posted a selfie video and said:  "I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson!"

March 11 post, he said: "My wife Karen Smith-Anderson is an Angel!!!"

March 12: He posted a youtube song by Sade titled By Your Side and said:…

Thank You Lebron James for Fulfilling My Bucket Wish List

You can't grow up in Northeastern Ohio and not be a sports fan.  As a cheerleader in middle and high schools, I came to appreciate and UNDERSTAND the game of football and basketball.  

I remember Marion Motley from the OLD Cleveland (Bulldogs) Browns coming over our house to socialize with my parents.  (He and my mother went to high school together).  I remember  Brian Sipe and the "Kardiac Kids" who always had me on the edge of my seat when they were playing.  I remember how proud I was when my high school classmate Phil Hubbard made his presence known on the Cleveland Cavaliers, along with Brad Daugherty, Ron Harper and Mark Price (the Cavalier's three-point king).

But in all of those years, we never won a championship or even came close.  My saddest memory is the 1987 AFC Championship Game between the Browns and Broncos on January 17, 1988 at Mile High Stadium. With 1:12 left in the game, Browns running back Earnest Byner fumbled on the Broncos 1 yard line while try…
