Introduction to BOOMER GOO—HOW TO SURVIVE THE SANDWICH GENERATION
by Linda M. Sittler.
Seventy six million baby boomers stuck between grumpy old codgers and pathetic grown progeny—Boomer Goo—that’s what we are; the ooey, gooey, gluey stuff that binds decrepit old parents to obnoxious grown kids in a most unsavory sandwich.
Surviving World War II and the Great Depression, our elderly folks have one foot in the grave and a stranglehold on us, making outrageous demands to drain us of all our energy and leave us obsessing with escape.
And at the same age that we may already have been married, our grown Generation Xers are still stuck at the opposite hip, making an audacious commotion of our lives that can often render us speechless.
How does the Boomer Goo survive life at “ground zero,” in the hot-seat center of the sandwich? To endure the uncomfortable pressure cooker, our “flubbery,” spineless nature may bend to the whims of the bread that is squeezing us.
Boomer Goo—How to Survive the Sandwich Generation is a tongue-in-cheek case study of the Upper Crust—tough elderly parents who have survived all of life’s worst punches—and the Bottom Slice—Generation Xers, who have had much easier lives, being spawned by baby boomers spoiled in a post-World War II world of jubilance.
She writes articles about baby boomers:
Linda has taken some time away this summer since both of her two daughters were
getting married. Congratulations to Linda & her husband and new families.

The Giving Gift!
A Holiday Short Story, by Brian Joseph
After he had unwrapped his gifts on Christmas morning the the 5 year old boy’s mother asked him which one of his presents he wanted to donate to a poor child who had less than him. “None”, the boy replied. His mom sat him on her lap and explained to him thatsharing with those who were less forunate was part of the holiday spirit and how a child who had less would probably be very happy to receive a gift. This took some convincing from mom but the boy eventually agreed to part with one of his gifts. Mom told him that he could have until the following morning to decide.

A Critical Look at Anti-Aging Skincare Products
Most people think they can recognize the song and dance of the swindler:
someone who promises the goods and never delivers. But in today’s world,
it’s harder to spot this purveyor of snake oil.
Nowadays, the fabled “time-honored remedy to aging” is promised to the public through
a sea of cosmetic products.
And unfortunately, the majority of these treatments classified as “anti-aging” have a minimal concentration of beneficial, active substances,
and have not been successfully tested or shown clear results.
