Should I stay or should I go? Is a 'Stay-Tirement' for you? In my quest to figure out the next phase of my life, the "where" piece continues to be the big question mark. Part of me wants to have a big adventure before I'm too old to physically have one. (Although, what's too old?)
Considering many companies have barely budged to accommodate the two biggest demographic changes of the 20th century -- women in the workforce and increased longevity -- that presents a significant challenge for current management and business growth.
Joaquin Phoenix, looking eerily like Kevin Kline, falls in love with his computer operating system. This is totally understandable (the falling in love part, not the Kevin Kline part), since his operating system is played by Scarlett Johansson.
Kim posted her online profile and within the first 15 minutes, received an unanticipated 500 responses. The highlights are:
After several years of living there, the decision was made to separate. My initial question about what happened was answered in due time. Morty remarried shortly after the divorce.
Perhaps it's because I have earned my stripes, know my stuff, have learned and recovered from my failures and I no longer feel the need to take any guff from anyone. That's a tough combination to beat.
Shop at a Target or Walgreens and notice a 70-something gal or guy behind the counter? Most likely they didn't take this low-wage job because they were bored in retirement, but because they were running out of money.
Doesn't it take longer than four years to realize you are married to someone whose face has now been consumed by their neck and whose nose is either much larger than was originally presented or has now started to sprout acres of nose hair?
If you are getting excited about the prospect of making your list of New Year's resolutions,and your list has been basically the same since 1967, you may want to take a gander at the following.
Take pride in your skills, your unique personal strengths and qualities and your value as a potential employee.
The holidays are a popular time for reuniting with siblings and parents. Like me, many sons and daughters no longer live in the same city as their parents, so this may be the first time in months when adult children are seeing their parents. Once together, it's common that health changes in mom or dad are more evident and the topic of aging, and its related issues, becomes a topic of family conversation.
I have been a standup comedian since the fall of 1980. Back then, it was a novelty to be one. Hell, no one really understood what a standup comic was. And the only women hugely successful at that time were Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers. My how times have changed.
I know, with the certainty of an actuary, that my chances of surviving the drive from New York City to Philadelphia are nil to none.
If they're like us and they make New Year's resolutions at all, they make the usual fall-back types...the kinds of resolutions that, if you don't accomplish them, won't seriously damage your self-esteem.
Jews throughout history have devised clever ways to horn in on the Christmas holiday. They have, like Life in the Boomer Lane, married Christians. They have created their own traditions which usually involve going to the movies and/or eating Chinese food.
Boomers aren't any smarter, any more talented, any more caring, any more creative, any more superior in any way than any generation that came before or that will come after. The worst you can accuse us of is being full of ourselves, but where music is concerned, we might have to agree. But to single us out and to truly believe that with us gone, the country will turn into a kind of utopia is simply not true.
