Go ahead and blame former President Clinton for calling attention to colon cancer by declaring this month National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Back in 2000, he knew what he was doing: it's an opportunity to spread colon cancer awareness. I know … it's not the sexiest topic, but we all need to think about our colons, especially once we hit 50.

I attended my first blogger conference eight years ago. I was a newbie blogger and one of only a dozen or so bloggers in the audience who was nearly 50. I was welcomed among crowds of "mommy bloggers" with babies in tow. Despite our age difference, I was smitten with the blogosphere. There was an energy, a vibe, a camaraderie. The only thing that was missing was my boomer tribe.

I love eggs. Scrambled, fried, poached and hard-boiled or in an omelet, frittata, quiche or salad—they're all good to me. So, I was pleased recently to read the recommendations for revisions to the Dietary Guidelines for America that drop cholesterol as a "nutrient of concern for overconsumption." Bring on the eggs!

Here's a more-than-common scenario in my house: Dinner is over, the table is cleared. The dishwasher is silently humming, the kitchen is officially closed and it's time to finally sit back and relax. We head for the couch and settle back into our respective spots (creatures of habit are we) to enjoy a television program or read a book. We exhale. It feels good; that moment of complete surrender, when you can finally brush off the day's craziness.

"Richard Gere joins the cast of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," said the nice PR representative when she asked me if I wanted to preview and promote the new movie.*
