Summer is here, and fiercely in many parts of the country. Many of us (including me) stay indoors during the hottest part of the day. But a large contingent head for cool waters. Relaxing near water means dressing appropriately. Personally bathing suits – and especially bikinis – are NOT favorite attire. But this week one of our boomers, Rebecca, met two stars comfortable in this particular attire.
Rebecca Olkowski, with BabyBoomster.com, interviewed two funny ladies who call themselves the Classic Bikini Divas. They are 66 and 78, and compete in bikini contests. You can watch their new show on TubiTV called “Never Too Old Never Too Late.” Both have been stand-up comediennes, so you know the interview will be funny. Please read about and watch the interview here or watch it on YouTube here.

If you put your dreams on hold, it’s time to shake them off and set your goals. Whether those are career goals, retirement goals, or other goals, it’s time to make a plan and follow them.
