Jed Diamond’s Newest Book, “12 Rules for Good Men” Continues His Mission to Help Men Understand Themselves While Helping Women Understand What Good Men Really Need

November 19th, 2019

NOTE: I was lucky enough to be invited to read a pre-publication copy of this book. As a result of that early reading, and my subsequent positive impression, I am honored to tell you that you’ll find a brief quote from me – along with the thoughts of dozens of other authors, coaches and medical experts – at the front of the book and on the front and back covers. Now, given that disclaimer, here’s my totally honest opinion of this book in a single sentence: If there’s a man in your life that you care about, you owe it to yourself and to him to buy this book. Heck,... Read More

Thoughts On (and Warnings About) the Growing Proliferation of Senior Scams: It’s Time to Talk About Financial Scams

June 1st, 2019

By Anne L. Holmes, APR, NABBW’s “Boomer in Chief” Pamela J. Sams, CRPC, MBA, NABBW’s Retirement Planning Associate, sent an article recently, for me to share on our NABBW Facebook page. When I read it, a story written by and published at Marketplace.org, which I’ve published in its entirety below, I experienced one of those “gut punch” moments. I knew as soon as I read it, that I really had to do more than just pass along the link with a quick comment. Why? Because I recognized the unfortunately scammed people who were profiled in the article, even though... Read More

Widowhood – Will We Boomers Find a Way to Reshape It, As We Have Already Done With Funerals?

June 28th, 2016

I’ve recently read three excellent books – one a novel – by two NABBW members, both dealing with the topic of widowhood. Life as a widow is not a scenario I’ve ever given much thought to, despite being advised, many decades ago in a collegiate gerontology course, that since women tend to live about five years longer than men, if we don’t want to end up widowed  it’s best to marry a younger man.  (In my defense, I was already married by that time, so couldn’t act on this sage advice.) More recent statistics, provided by WISER, the Women’s Institute... Read More

September 21st, 2015

A NOTE FROM THE “BOOMER IN CHIEF:” Recently, one of my collegiate girlfriends posted photos on on Facebook, sharing that her newly retired husband had just beautifully completed an advanced yard project, and noting that if any friends thought it looked like something their yard would appreciate, she’d send him over, noting that he “has a lot of extra time between yoga and long road bike rides. Works cheap for good food and a glass or two of fine red wine.” One of her neighbors quickly responded, admiring the project, but noting that, “Sam (not his real name)... Read More
