  It has recently come to Life in the Boomer Lane’s attention that, while she and her friends (roughly aged late 50’s to early 70′s) spend a lot of time bemoaning their physical and mental deterioration, a huge number of people are mindlessly cavorting through their 90′s, oblivious to the aging concerns that LBL and […]
