Man, I love the future. I can't wait for 2012. Do you know what happens in the year 2012? Cell phones work everywhere. Dude, I'm serious. You get terrific reception in the air, land, sea, airplanes, the middle of effing NOWHERE. One more thing about the year 2012 - it's the year the planet BLOWS UP.
Perfect for Memorial Day, this cool, creamy dessert from my mom Patsy's collection will complement your patriotic table. As a bonus, it can be prepared in less than 10 minutes leaving you plenty of time to relax by the pool!
You. Have. Been. Warned.
It's the time of year when Boomer parents everywhere sit for hours at graduation ceremonies. We all share the same bond: counting the seconds until OUR KID walks across the stage. It's Dante's Inferno in an air conditioned coliseum.
Graduates don't have it any easier.
I spent my entire junior high and high school life sandwiched between the same two people thanks to a cruel 26-letter alphabet. Today, 36 years after graduating, I can't tell you what happened to them. My favorite reply when anyone asks about my classmates is that as far as I know they're either dead or in jail. Turns out I'm right about half the time.
I just wanna say one word to you. Just one word. Are you listening? Plastics.
Zoe Fitzgerald Carter's Imperfect Endings isn't the feel-good novel of the year, but it's a novel full of feelings experienced by every Boomer with aging parents.
If James Bond had ever been into bass fishing, his rig might have looked a little like this.
If you're a Netflix subscriber you really need to check out the Phone Flicks app for your iPhone.
This great new app isn't "officially" associated with Netflix, but it's a very easy way to manage your Netflix queue and Instant queue while adding movies to both.
I have a confession. After spending 108 minutes with this movie I STILL don't know what it's about.
This Bacon Mug is every guy's fantasy come true. It has every heart-stopping thing imaginable: biscuits (for molding the cup), cheese (both cream and Swiss) and lots of bacon. The Holy Grail of gluttony totals 2400 calories and 158 grams of fat. Under the new healthcare guidelines this dish must be served with 100mg of Zocor and three complimentary stents.
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I'd never had the pleasure of seeing the 64-year-old Boomer and spokesbabe for L'Oreal cosmetics up close and personal.
Since Charlotte and I are patrons of SMU's Tate Lecture Series, we got our chance to see the dynamic Diane a few nights ago.
See is a relative term -- seeing as how our season tickets allow us entry only into McFarlin Auditorium's THIRD BALCONY. This, as anyone who's anyone can tell you, is the BOTTOM of the Tate Lecture Series food chain Dahling.
The food chain didn't keep us from seeing Ms. Keaton. And Diane didn't disappoint.
I don't know what I was expecting (an aging actress telling stories about the "good 'ol days"?). What we got was an engaging talk about perseverance and the power of not letting age slow you down.
In retirement, my mom found murder, madness and some serious romance.
Spice up Cinco de Mayo with this tasty chile-and-cheese pie. I've found that real men love quiche when it's filled with bacon!
The Worldmate travel itinerary app is a great little iPhone app for Boomers who fly the friendly skies.
