As Agnes chats with Michelle, it becomes apparent that no matter what we name the generations, the story for many women doesn't really change.  Some of the circumstances may look different but the commonalities are there.

Michelle is a Gen-X-er who had a great career but, after the birth of twins, realized the income that remained at the end of the month if she went back to work was paltry... and add that fact to the heartache o...

This time last year, Mar Sulaika had been riding our local ferry system and had another trip in her future.  To explain: she lives on the mainland, Agnes and other of Mar Sulaika's friends live on the island.

 

The frustrations of ferry travel bump into the vagaries of municipal politics.

 

A discussion of online bookings and its complexities is kind of a hoot this year as, with COVID, doing almost anything/everything online has be...

Who is Steve? It's a small world!!

 

Some discussion around the convoluted world of branding.

 

Online grocery shopping was not the norm this time last year. A Dutch company had implemented a "Chat Checkout".  So much can change in one short year:  https://projectforgive.org/progressive-supermarket-creates-chat-checkout-to-connect-with-elderly-who-feel-lonely/

 

As editor, I (Agnes) love listening to Mar Sulaika's naivete...

Flashback: Amazing how much can happen in a year!

As though the apartment fire wasn't enough, Agnes' daughter had their car broken into while in "secure" parking.

Discussion around the problems of rampant population growth without any apparent planning from any level of government... with a mythological tie-in...

Agnes' knee was still being a pain in the knee - she has a love/hate relationship with the BFR, and hav...

Agnes has her good friend, Robin DeFoe on this week: Robin is one of those special Boomers who still has a mom with her, and she has decided to be caregiver for her mom as dementia claims another lovely person.

Robin has a unique gift and that is building a network marketing business, although most of her work has had to be sidelined as her mom's needs grow.

Robin was introduced to CBD oil to helpher mom - the link to the researc...

Agnes is moving again... (I seem to have moved too many times since moving to Victoria, and now that I'm looking to move again, to rehash prior moves in these flashbacks, is a little surreal)

Mar Sulaika's in the money? If this is a flashback, will we get resolution abut the mystery money?

Mar Sulaika was about to come visit Agnes and attend the wedding of a friend....

Apparently Agnes was supposed to be in the Dominican right...

Agnes is pleased to introduce you to Judith Pratt-Jefferies, author of Permission Granted: How To Find and Follow a Path to a Life True to Your Self.

A number of years ago, Judith decided to put paid to her "successful" life and create her "fulfilled" life.  and has never looked back.

She wrote a book with stories about her adventure/endeavour as encouragement for those of us who dream of doing something similar.

She s...

BoowWithABang.com gets kudos from Mar Sulaika.  https://boomwithabang.com/

This time last year we were planning for this podcast. Sorting, Sorting, Sorting...

Expanding Mar Sulaika's website... and her brain.  Interesting hindsight as these things really do take on a life of their own and unfold the way they should.

Agnes is the Analogy Queen this episode - hope you can follow.  When it comes to the discussion of possibilities: if...

Agnes is flying solo today - some time ago she collated a variety of income opportunities for Boomers... she reviews them today, and if you don't need an income opportunity then perhaps something here will be a diversion as we find our Normal in this current global Normal.

Flashback to 2019 - Agnes was helping Mar Sulaika realize her vision of a website to represent her online.  It's such a personal piece of property, your online home.  A slightly shorter episode today as Two Boomer Women really got into the minutiae of design and we didn't want to bore with you too much of that!

As an aside, your take-away from this episode is that you should be firm with your wishes when it comes to your web...

Bonbons... what was that show called?  Oh, right, Married With Children.

School's done - that's a huge relief for Agnes.  She's still house hunting - so there's speculation on what's going to happen to house values.

Mar Sulaika watched Boys Don't Cry... which leads to many insights into the "human condition".  Two Boomer Women dig into history and personal viewpoints as they wade through that complex s...

A little progress in the matter of Agnes' family housing issue post-apartment fire... they are settling into their "current normal" - interesting as it is a key phrase this year when Agnes talks about COVID.

Mar Sulaika experiences the joys of apartment living as she has water issues just as she's planning a trip away.

Mar Sulaika shares some of the 'oddities' of her mom's dementia.

Agnes is meeting Mar Sul...

Of course, a discussion around eggs morphs to where to find us online!

The power of conversation as we each (all of us) create our go-forward reality.  Mar Sulaika got to see her mom this week, after 3 months of isolation - to 2 or not to 2 (metres, that is...) and the varying realities of relationships.

Dementia... and when it speaks inappropriately in public spaces.

Mondays will be Flashbacks to the same time 2019 for a while as Mar Sulaika takes advantage of the creative energy that has possessed her of late.  Thursday will be current as, of course! will be Pissed On Podcast!

So... last June Mar Sulaika was pursuing neighbourhood stats for a business proposal... with very little luck - technology is great but it's ineffective if it's not kept up-to-date.

Mar Sulaika was selling a piece ...

It's very difficult to be upbeat with the world going through its current growing pains - and Two Boomer Women weren't going to fake it.

Mercury in retrograde was an easy place to start...

Then on to COVID and Black Lives Matter and police and revolution and Brokeback Mountain and Me Too and COVID.  How's that for tackling the world as we know it?

We did end on a somewhat lighter note: sending photos by email, playing in t...

June is off to a bit of crazy start for Two Boomer Women so thank goodness they have episodes in the vault!  Here is another one from June 2019.

To bring you up to speed, one year ago Agnes's daughter and her family were "collateral damage" from an apartment fire in the suite above them in their downtown high rise.  They quickly learned the generosity of people... although Agnes had called her daughter just last week to ...

Two Boomer Women reach back into the vault again today to June 2019.

This episode has a lazy start although Molly Shannon is full of energy! (When these episodes were recorded last year, we had no way of knowing how loud, and uneditable, fidgeting is.  So, our apologies, but rest assured fidgeting is the sign of an active creative!) 

Mar Sulaika has been considering selling some of the artwork of her late husband, Peter Paul Ochs (st...

Donald Trump, Mar Sulaika's book and Amazon... and that was just the first 5 minutes!

It's a short episode today as life is winging just a bit out of control and Agnes is agitated because of an aggressive deer stalking while she was out with her grandsons and dog this morning.

Updates!  Skype, computers, they can be a thorn in one's side.

Fear in children; and ending with James Thurber's The Last Flower.
