Hobbies of the Rich and Famous

I am not rich and famous.

Well, not yet.

But do you want to know what I do with my spare time?

Maybe not, but I am going to tell you anyway.


Because it is highly recommended by web experts worldwide that bloggers like me need to connect at a more personal level with my readers.

I need to build a more intimate relationship with you.

I need to develop your trust and confidence so that everything I say you accept as gospel truth.

Once we begin to relate at a much deeper intellectual and emotional level, you will begin to fall under the spell of my blog and you will not be satisfied with your life until Survive55 grows to complete world domination.

Anyway, my top 5 hobbies are:

1. Collecting vinyl record albums

2. Collecting arena football sports memorabilia

3. Learning Spanish

4. Thrift store shopping

5. Becoming a Baby Boomer authority

There, doesn't that feel better?

Don't you feel closer to me already?

Look deep into my eyes...

OK, maybe I'm just not that interesting.

But, have you ever wondered what rich and famous people, most of whom are baby boomers, do with their spare time?

Well, as part of my quest to become a Baby Boomer authority (#5) I spend a good amount of time on interesting and thought provoking websites like "Mental Floss."

Check out this wonderful video posted by John Green on Mental Floss as he explores the hobbies of some rather successful baby boomers including Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Ryan Gosling.

If you found my blog funny, interesting or even helpful, I bet your friends would to.

It's easy to tell them about it.

You could forward it to them by clicking on these links to:

"Facebook", "Twitter", "LinkedIn", "StumbleUpon", "Pinterest", "Google+"

or just email them my blog link at

It would be great if you told everyone you knew about

We would be one step closer to world domination.

Look deep into my eyes..

The more Baby Boomers we can help, the better place we make this world!

Thanks for joining me.
