Autumn Edition of the Blogging Boomers Blog Carnival!

by midlifecrisisqueen on September 16, 2012

There’s a chill in the air up here in northern Colorado, and the aspen are at their golden peak up in the Rockies!  After such a hot, dry summer, don’t we all deserve a break?

Here’s the latest from our group of top Boomer Blogs:

Arabian Tales Katie Foster shares her favorite adventure in the UAE – a road trip to the dramatic expanse of the Empty Quarter Desert and a first look at a local date festival:  Midnight at the Liwa Oasis

SoBabyBoomer thinks that the high point of autumn will be November 6th, when the 2012 Presidential Election will be all about saving the American Dream.  With the richest family in the U.S., the Wal-Mart heirs, with a family wealth of $89.5 billion, having as much wealth as the bottom 40% of Americans combined, (!) is it time to address our growing inequality, and question the core national faith that even Americans of humble backgrounds have a good chance of getting ahead?

Tom Sightings read Stephen King’s book 11/22/63 while he was away last weekend, and it made him wonder:  How is our world different today from what it was like in 1958, the year when King’s main character, Jake Epping, stepped out of his time-bending rabbit hole?  Take the time to travel over to Sightingsat60 to see some of the differences — and perhaps suggest a few of your own.

Daily meditation can be extremely beneficial, not just mentally but physically as well. However, many women find it a frustrating process. If you are one of these people, it could be that your expectations are not being met.   Eliza over at Silver and Grace has a solution:  Meditation Frustration? Change Your Expectations.

For lots of people fall is their favorite season, but not everyone.  The Accidental Locavore shares her top 9 reasons for not liking the ninth month of the year.

Over at The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about a survey conducted for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. It found that many caregivers mistakenly interpret certain behaviors as a normal part of aging rather than as symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, thus delaying the diagnosis of a loved one’s Alzheimer’s.

Vaboomer is excited about the surprising spider experiment on the SpaceLab this week. 

The Midlife Crisis Queen, Laura Lee wishes to take a moment to crow about a recent psychology award, and her other accomplishments as a midlife therapist and writer.

She celebrated her 7th wedding anniversary this week, and now she’s sharing her thoughts on how finding love at 49 is different.

It really doesn’t all that much work, because we all take turns presenting carnivals. Want to start one specifically for midlife women? – LLC
