SECTION ONE - New Life and Moving BoomersInt.com

By: Jeri Maier
While the speed of computers has gotten us
all used to "instantaneous" results, 
Boomers International realizes that true
GROWTH and TRANSFORMATION
takes time and patience. We apologize for the delay.

Moving from the high stress and fast pace world of 
Silicon Valley to a rural area just north of
San Diego was a great life changing 
and healing experience for me. 

High technology is complex and 
although Southern California is also
known as Silicon Beach with many
high tech companies, most of them
are still located in the cities. 

Although I gained great riches of inspiration 
and peaceful solitude experiences  
from being close with nature, 
I encountered many set back by 
living in the country. The area is still 
lacking internet high speed infrastructure and
the sense of urgency that I was used 
to in Silicon Valley high tech industries . 

We will have our new servers up
to speed very shortly. 

SECTION TWO - Book Review
Visit our site to find the two baby Boomer 
books that we will review.

§ Balsamic Dreams
A Short but Self-important History 
of the Baby Boomer Generation
by Joe Queenan

§ 133 Ways to Avoid Going Cuckoo When the Kids Fly the Nest: 
A Parent's Guide for Surviving Empty Nest Syndrome, 
by Lauren Schaffer, Sandy Fleischl Wasserman. 
© July 17, 2001 



SECTION THREE - Issues of The day
§ Health Care Issues 
Long Term Health Care Insurance.
How important to know about Long Term Health Care.

What is LTC ? 
§ Stem Cell Research
By: Gary Sorkin. A wonderful woman I know has ALS, Amyothrophic Latereral Sclerosis, or better known as, Lou Gehrig's Disease. When I first met her, she was using a walker, now she's in a wheelchair. She told me that the prognosis for her life span was five years to seven years.
She's had it for four years and is optimistic. When she sits next to me in the car, I have to buckle her seat belt for her. We are pretty good friends. She is a Boomer. Recently, she told me that her daughter-in-law was pregnant. I said "congratulations." Then, she told me that her pregnant daughter-in-law was going to save her placenta for her. I didn't have to ask, "Why?" I understood. Perhaps, the placenta will contain the gene to cure this wonderful woman. Perhaps, the placenta will contain the mystery to cure many diseases. Perhaps?
§ In the mean time there are oppositions to Stem Cell Research according to ethical quesions and beliefs. By Jeri Maier Do No Harm: The Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics sent 140,000 petitions to the White House. For more information, visit The Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics. Understanding Stem Cell Research President Bush announced to allow federal funding of existing 60 lines of embryonic stem cell research. CNN Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta explores the issue. § Career and Job changes during These Economic Times Life is changing very rapidly. By: Gary Sorkin. As many Boomers know, "What used to be - is no longer." In the "good ol' days," there was that corporate ladder for us to put our foot on, and climb. People used to stay with one company for their entire lives. That ladder is no longer. Industries have down-sized, and many have just disappeared. Where do we Boomers go when, "What used to be - is no longer?" The obvious answer is - we have to change with the times. Easier said, than done. Many of us are hurting.

As more and more healthcare concerns start affecting us

Perhaps this is the time for life changing or career shifting.
Time for shifting gears, an opportunity to start a business.
Perhaps, planning for early retirement.
How about going back to school or volunteering your services. There is no higher calling than helping those in need.
Time to catch up on enjoying your hobbies:
At this time of our life with lifetime experiences,
starting over can mean a job that can entail
part time consulting, full time counseling or freelance contracting.

Why are boomers so job oriented?
The AARP says their generation needs
more money than their parents’
generation to live comfortably and
they are more self-indulgent.
It adds up to this: A retirement income
based on pension, social security
and personal investments will not
pay the bills for consumer-oriented
boomers.
