Yep…it’s happened again! The OlderWiserWomen computers made a funny little clicking sound…and then stopped. Very frustrating.
Even more frustrating is that we have been backing up our data daily…just so we are protected. Except…our that while our software and external drive were happily churning away…they were doing so in vain. The last back up recorded was in January.
Consequently, we’ve lost several months worth of writing, emails, newsletters, etc. That includes your contact info and any recent emails. If you have contacted us, and have not yet heard from us…please contact us again.
Thanks for your patience.
Guess what? I am being interviewed on The EmpowerHour withÂ Susan Schanerman on March 28, 2006 at 4pm Pacific. The show will be broadcast live and you can hear it via the internet on www.artistfirst.com. We will be able to receive questions and commentsÂ during the show by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to tune in live, the show will be archived on The Empower Hour website approx. 5 - 7 days after the broadcast.
The CBS Early Show did a segment on women and midlife. I love the opening sentence of this…”Midlife doesn’t need to bring crisis. Sometimes, it just brings change, in the form of reinvention.”
I often hear the term “midllife” used right along with “crisis”. I for one have not felt like I’m in crisis. Yes, I’m changing and my world is changing. It’s exciting, sometimes a bit scarey (most of us don’t like the “unknown”), yet I would not have it any other way.
What changes are you experiencing? How do you see midlife? Feel free to post your comments below…I’d love to hear form you.
I don’t know about you…but I have been psyched for weeks over the coming spring. And she arrived this morning with a bright yellow sun and clear skies - not too common of an occurrence in this part of the country (this time of year). It makes the clouds, gray and rain (as forecasted for the rest of the week) tolerable.
Happy Spring Everyone!
If you are a member receiving our newsletter, you might recall that we love to honor the women who are having birthdays “Celebrations”, the official ezine for OlderWiserWomen.
Do we have your birthday on file? If not, send it in.
We look forward to wishing you a delightful celebration. And don’t we…we won’t sing!
…as did the generations coming before and after. Here is one persons thoughts…
Oldest baby boomers, turning 60, have seen - and made - history
July 20, 1969, on live television, Neil Armstrong became the first human being to walk on the moon. The baby boomers were there.
Nov. 4, 1963, on live television, in the basement of the Dallas police headquarters, Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald. The baby boomers were there.
In the rice paddies and jungles of Vietnam and on the steps of St. Matthews Cathedral in Washington as John-John Kennedy saluted the casket of his father, the baby boomers were there.
This is the year that the oldest baby boomers - born between 1946 and 1964 - turn the big 6-0. That means they’re only two years away from eligibility for Social Security, a milestone that could mean an economic crisis for the nation.
To give some background, the “baby boom” occurred when U.S. soldiers returned from World War II and produced babies in numbers that caused a population spike.
Famous boomers include President George Bush and first lady Laura Bush, former President Bill Clinton, pop singer Cher, actor Sylvester Stallone and iconic boomer singer Jimmy Buffett. All of them remember the astronaut triumphs, events surrounding the JFK assassination, and Vietnam War protests and battlefield bloodshed.
Television broadcasts are intertwined with those memories.

I ran across an interesting article today about women’s history.
So, tell me what you think:
- Did women really run their bras?
- Was there really a Pope Joan?
- Did Betsy Ross reall make the first American Flag?
Lots of interesting reading….
