Phyllis Stoller Suspects We Boomers Are Actually Safer From Covid If We’re Traveling Outside the US Than We Are at Home

January 13th, 2022

I just returned from 3 trips: one to Paris, one to Tuscany and London and an October one to Dubai/Abu Dhabi and Oman. Here is what I witnessed and what made me relax about Covid. And I am ready to take more groups to Europe beginning in May and to Mexico in a few weeks. Overseas masking is mandatory. In airports, on flights and in most places you as a tourist will visit.  Masking on a flight also means you no longer catch the cold of the guy in row whatever. Nor do you get snored... Read More

By Lorraine Miano, NABBW’s Holistic Menopause Health Associate During the post-menopause years, many women find that they have difficulty maintaining a healthy weight.

How Are You Feeling These Days? Worn Down From Trying to Protect Yourself Against Coronavirus? Join the Club!

January 10th, 2022

By Anne L. Holmes, NABBW’s Boomer in Chief How are you feeling? We need to talk about the current coronavirus situation, as the numbers of infected people have been climbing since this past December. I haven’t discussed it much here earlier, because mask-wearing has been such a politically charged situation. But since the numbers here in the US just keep going up, I’m going to say I hope everyone in your family has been vaccinated, had their boosters — and is wearing masks when you’re out of the house. (Personally, I have also recently switched to wearing the... Read More

December 27th, 2021

By Carolee Duckworth, NABBW’s Independent Travel Associate Oh baby, it’s cold outside! Clearly winter is upon us. The world has turned drab and neutral, a dull pallet of brown and gray.

Linda Ballou Shares Why Winter Is A Perfect Time to Enjoy a “Wild Time” on the Central Coast of California

December 16th, 2021

By Linda Ballou, NABBW’s Adventure Travel Associate Winter on the Central Coasts means fewer tourists and plentiful wildlife. Birds and marine mammals gather there in chaotic profusion from December to February. Every year, hundreds of birders flock to the sleepy fishing town of Morro Bay on California’s Central Coast to take part in the Audubon Birding Fest. The Pacific’s saltwater mixed with the freshwater of streams flowing in the largest estuary on the west coast resulting in a nutrient-rich brew for thousands of birds. The charm of the rust-colored, reed-choked estuary is... Read More
