Two Boomer Women lost some time lately with Agnes' move, so this episode was recorded Friday right before they poured drinks and recorded Pissed on Podcast (hence the references).

The move is done - no catastrophes but that doesn't stop them from discussing the subject.

Agnes' new client is blind - let's ponder that concept, which segues nicely into care facilities.

Covidiots and buses, hot dogs are monster meat.

Flashback:  Short episode today as Agnes was in move mode.  That said, it could have been longer but both women were in sigh-mode and most of that has landed on the cutting room floor.

MS is an HSP.

Deja vu - Agnes' move was imminent, and is imminent - this year however she is looking forward to her new home.

Tiny abodes.

Mar Sulaika is advocating for her mother which segues to in praise of 'simple'.

Finally, as if a move wa...

Agnes is moving.

Mar Sulaika has been without internet for 36 hours.

Does COVID make English school even more important?

Mar Sulaika makes a fashion statement when she finds herself without a mask!!!

"tired" reigns supreme today.

Discussions around POP - either Agnes does't explain things well, or Mar Sulaika had her Luddite cap on...  but on to a real POP subject: drinks of choice (there's something about meeting late a...

Agnes promises not to be moving again this time next year!  

MS appreciated the generation of doctors who actually touch their patients... gardening therapy... old people and catheter bags...

So many reminders of how we took so much for granted before COVID.

Opinions on cab companies; Agnes climbs onto her soapbox about some care aides and then they both ruminate on care facilities for their generation.

The Nature of Things: distortion...

Agnes revisits the theme of Two Boomer Women: The Lost Art of Conversation, prompted by the person who knows they'll get a chuckle when they read "Mar had problems with..." in the show notes.  :-)

A promotion for conversation and an anecdote about someone who has conversations about American politics.

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...

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/

Flashback: Amazing how much can happen in a year!

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.

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...

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
