If I keep getting older, I'm going to have to kill myself.

I finally tweeted something that made someone laugh.

Eileen William's Fab Info for Job-Seekers Over 50

I've always wondered how to handle my college info and graduation dates when filling out job applications. (I went to school in the 70s.) Sure, I believe in I don't want to hide my age, but I don't want to sound like I'm absolutely ancient, either.

God knows I'm no expert on finding employment in a tough job market....I've gotten most of my jobs by knowing the CEO or owner of some company. However, I do know good info when I read it / see it / hear it, and I like what Mary Eileen Williams says about resumes and interviews in this Youtube video. So, click here to watch Critical Tips for Finding Work After 50 from a fellow Boomer babe. 

Here's the Song of the Day:  People Song.

Why Are There So Many Baby Boomers?

Once upon a time, a bunch of horny sailors came back from the war. They had unprotected sex with nice girls who weren’t Nazis in the backseats of cars while listening to Fats Domino.

Then, all those horny sailors married those girls and had sex in the backseats of cars for eighteen more years.

What Is Baby Boomers?

What is Baby Boomers? This phrase is so funny that someone on another Baby Boomer website stole my line. You see, I'm a Topic Editor and writer at and other sites. One day I received a comment asking, "What is Baby Boomers?"

I wanted to say that "it" was a new type of diaper, a play on the phrase Baby Bloomers, but instead I wrote a quick article explaining what Baby Boomers is: What is Baby Boomers? What are Baby Boomer's Characteristics

Yay, Now I Have More Followers

I now have more followers.  For a while, I only had one.  However, I've finally found the part of the dashboard that allows me to alter my layout, so it's a moot point.  Thank G-d!

Will Your Stocks Make a Comeback?

It's difficult to know what will happen while Helicopter Ben is keeping the floor under the market but you can find one long-term prediction by clicking on the video below.

I am in the midst of reading the book, Aftershock, and it is not clear whether or not all of it is correct. I believe almost everything I have read from the book, because I look at things from a Macro perspective. My husband, who I must admit, has been dead right about our personal finances for as long as I've known him, does not believe in buying gold, selling our house (because it's a cheap place for us to live), or bailing out of dollar-denominated assets. So, as you can imagine, our discussions can occasionally become quite heated.

So, I'm not going to say that everything in Aftershock will come to pass, and I will say that Baby Boomers are in a different situation than many other folks. If you own your home outright or your mortgage payments are low, you might want to hang onto your home. The problem with selling to recoup any gains is: Where the hell do you put your profits? And, here's the dilemma:

CDs are around 1% or less. You don't want to go long on Treasuries because you know there WILL be inflation. (That has already happened with QE 1 & 2. You just haven't seen it yet.) If you were to buy gold, where would you put it? And, how would you transport it if you moved? (Don't ask me, I don't have any.) Is it safe to invest in one of those places where the corporation has physical possession of your gold, and will that company be around when The Sh*t Hits The Fan (TSHTF)?

Anyway, I haven't had a chance to see this whole video because it can't be paused, but I will see it soon. So, take what they say with a grain of salt because no one can predict the future. And, hang on to your ass because, whatever the future holds, you are probably going to need a level head.
