Boomer Living

A Boomer community with color coded categories that have their own pages under the redstring network of social communities umbrella. The Red String network has not been updated since 2014. The dates do not show on articles from Boomer Living, so it's difficult to see how active this community is in fact. There are some good articles, but many categories have only a few articles in it. In brief- a good site to look at, and worth looking towards, but we are unsure of how actively maintained it is.

Destination Boomers

Life is a sensory experience, and it comes at us, but once, so we damn well better pay attention. says Deb, the creator or @DesignationBoom. She says that Destination Boomers covers the prism of life after 45 - TOPICS, ranging from A-Z - with a Kaleidoscopic view - that YOU make shine.

Also from the website: Why not share it with all its pleasures, frustrations, sights, sounds and ideas? We all have insights and viewpoints. Whether we’re 45+ or not, let’s continue to make a difference! Learning as we go, isn’t that what life is?
At one time, I also owned and operated a store called – AMBER WAVES ANTIQUES – in Pinetop, AZ. It was one of the most satisfying endeavors ever. The creativity of finding that something special, in Tulsa OK or Omaha, NE, was FUN!
But, back to why it all comes down to – why not? As we get past 40 life, it’s priorities and focus changes drastically.
There’s an absolute peace as we get past fifty and an acceptance of who we are and what we want.
Here’s hoping you enjoy the content and conversation and retweet it to your friends and enjoy coming back!
Here’s to safe travels and unexpected moments of happiness,
