Welcome to the new BoomerGirl!

   As you have undoubtedly noticed, BoomerGirl has a new look and a new home.  The site is no longer under the ownership of The World Company.  Instead, it has become my personal blog site, owned by me and hosted by Blogspot.
   The content here will be much the same as on the old site but some of the old features, like staff blogs, blogs by BoomerGirl readers and games, are gone.  There are, however, links to most of your favorite staff blogs under "Links I Like" and  I'm trying to figure out a way to continue the ever-popular monthly contest.  I'll keep you updated on my progress.
   In the meantime, congratulations to November's contest winner, Marjorie Jensen, who will be receiving a selection of Trapp holiday candles soon.
  A heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported BoomerGirl(1.0) over the last (almost) 3 years.  I look forward to hearing from you via comments or email in the future.  And I hope you'll check back here frequently for product recommendations, recipes, beauty and fashion tips, rousing podcasts, humor, pop culture, health news and more BoomerGirl 2.0 stuff.
   All best,

I will miss the old BoomerGirl - but am looking forward to navigating the new one. What will we as readers be able to do with this new site? The interactions and comments from all readers was a great part of BoomerGirl - will we still be able to do that?

Good luck with the new site!

Thanks, everybody. Still learning. Yes, Laurie. Interaction and comments are more than welcome. In fact, I think it'll be easier to comment here than on the old site. Fewer hoops to jump through.

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission " create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…
