Accidental Locavore Flag Small

This Fourth of July, the Accidental Locavore is happy to present the 214th Blogging Boomer’s Carnival. On the Accidental Locavore’s mind, a no-bake flag cake, you can easily assemble for a patriotic dessert. If that’s not enough,see what the locavore has been doing with her farm box and check out the new series of recipes for the farmers’ market.

Tom Sightings offers a new entry in his series “Remember Him?” at  sightingsat60.blogspot.com. When Baby Boomers were growing up, this man was a mover and shaker in Washington, New York, and points beyond. See if you can guess who he is …before you click on the link!

A national holiday may seem like a strange time to be talking about the increasing suicide rate among Baby Boomers. But spending too many holidays alone can be tough!  Learn more about those among us who struggle with depression and loneliness, and what can be done to help.

Calorie restriction is never fun, but especially around holidays!  Laura Lee offers some thoughts about the many reasons we stuff our faces!

Would you ever call a man a flake? Three Random Thoughts from The Boomer Chronicles.

Over at Contemporary Retirement, Ann asks: Are you dreading the thought of retirement?

As you can see this is an abbreviated version of the Blogging Boomer’s Carnival. It’s the first time we’ve celebrated the 4th of July with a carnival and some of our bloggers have gone on to other projects.

What blogs, written by Baby Boomers, do you read and like? We’d love to have some recommendations for future Carnivals! The requirements: They must be written by Boomers and on topics of interest to Boomers, have a good following,, be in existence for at least six months and must be (at least) a weekly post.

Send any and all recommendations to Laura Lee Carter, our current ringleader.

Thank you and Happy Independence Day!
