Dear Friends,

It's time for a little update. First, I'd like to inform you that the
link from our monthly teleseminar is now on the Member
Benefits page at www.nabbw.com.
Please login to your account to listen! Barbara Friesner did an
excellent job sharing how we can better care for our aging parents. I
hope you will take the time to listen.

I had the tremendous pleasure of meeting Marianne Gray, the editor
for me* Magazine while I was in Winter Park, Florida. I was
truly blown away by her tour of the Menopause the Musical,
me*Magazine, and MTM Uncorked (Women Who Wine) headquarters. Jeanie
Linders has created an empire for midlife women and it's all fabulous.
I experienced creativity like never before as Marianne showed me
through their facility and introduced me to all the remarkable women
(and two men) who do what it takes to keep a show, magazine, and wine
club going. More to come in Boomer Women's World next month.
