The Boomer File - Boomer Timeline

The Boomer File - Boomer Timeline
Video sent by boomerfile

I came across this video just today; a little into 2009; but I just had to share the Boomer Timeline. Great recap of what has influenced Boomers.

Happy 2009 Boomers! You know, the election of Barack Obama last year added a new milestone to the Baby Boomer Timeline. And that got me thinking of all the wonderful and terrifying things that have shaped the world in our lifetime. Here's a quick run down. And stay tuned to The Boomer File, because we've got a lot in store for 2009! And remember, you can watch all episodes of The Boomer File in HD at!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Feliz Navidad and a Blessed Chinese New Year to all of you. Oops, it has been long enough since my last visit and talk with you that I need also to say Happy New Year-hope yours is not only happy but also healthful and helpful. And also I need to wish you a Happy Groundhog Day--hope that for all of you in the SNOW, the groundhog does not see his shadow. Whew, but at least I got in before I had to deal with Valentine's Day.

I was planning on doing a post on making resolutions for the new year; but most of the ones that were made are already broken or at lease a little battered. Many people have taken to not making any resolutions at all so they don't have to feel guilty about breaking them later. I even created a Squidoo lens about the debate on whether to make resolutions or not. Go check it out and weigh in with your opinion.
Make New Years Resolutions or Not?

Then I discovered this blog
and the post he made on December 29th---couldn't have said it better myself.


It's tempting at this time of the year to get all wrapped up in what will be or what was. I thought about using that as my topic today but then I thought, Why? What is, is. What was, was. What will be, will be. LIVE IN THE PRESENT.

Life goes by fast enough when you pay attention to it. When you get wrapped up in worries about what if, it slides by without our even being aware of it. Life is short, enjoy it.

Tommorrow the sun will rise, greet it with joy in your heart. It is a new day, who knows what adventure it will bring?
