I’m a baby boomer, a part of that pig-in-a-python demographic group that has brought so many changes to America – and will continue to do so until we cash our last Social Security check. I attended college, went to business school, funded an IRA, then in my mid-50s was unceremoniously laid off. Meanwhile, I had two kids, got divorced and now live with my significant other who has two children of her own. We live in the New York area, a convenient stopover for our four peripatetic 20-somethings. I blog at sightingsat60.blogspot.com/ where I cover health, finance, retirement and other concerns of people who realize that somehow they have grown up.
