Knees and Camels: the Accidental Locavore Hosts a Carnival

Barely into 2012 and the Accidental Locavore gets to host the Blogging Boomer’s Carnival this week (no cooking required). From knees to necks with a few camels thrown in for good measure: what’s on tap?

SoBabyBoomer writes about keeping Boomers on the job.  As America’s Baby Boomers grow older and creakier, some companies are trying to keep those with hard-to-replace skills fit enough to remain employed.

The Midlife Crisis Queen regularly receives midlife-related products from companies.  These are a few that changed her life for the better!

What’s the most popular post on Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures in 2011 ? Midnight at the Liwa Oasis – Our first UAE In-country Adventure. Memorizing dunes, camels and local heritage demonstrations made this one awesome trip.

Lucie from Midlife Musings talks about New Year’s Resolutions and how sometimes revamping the way you think may be the best resolution to make.

Dan the Early Retired Man is a formal U.S. Post Office employee who predicts the demise of weekend delivery. See the Boomer Chronicles for more. Will you miss him on Saturdays?

Speaking of cost-cutting measures, Tom Sightings is spending the new year trying to figure out The Problem with Our Economy, and to help clarify the issues he turns to the brilliantly acerbic financial writer Michael Lewis.

Over at Contemporary Retirement, Ann asks: Would you rather eat, drink and be merry and die at a younger age?  Or practice restraint and hope to live longer?

And if you’d like to eat, drink and be merry, the Accidental Locavore has a great recipe for Greek shrimp with feta. Added bonus, it fits into my (one) resolution!

What’s your favorite post this week and why? We love your comments!

  1. Thanks! I took a look at your site and sent your information on to Laura Lee, our “ringleader”. FYI #6 on your bucket list is harder than it seems! Check out my blog on Fridays and see how long I can stick to it.

  2. Hi,
    I love reading this compendium of blogging boomers. It’s great to have a one-stop-shop, so to speak, where I can read about and along with my peers. I was wondering how one becomes a part of this Carnival? Can I request an invitation?
