My Life in Front of the TV

March 12, 2015

45

  For many years, Life in the Boomer Lane smugly told people that she didn’t watch network TV. She limited her TV viewing to shows on the Discovery and History channels (if religion consisted solely of archaeological hunts for the “real” Jesus and other mysteries of the Bible, LBL would be on board) , with […]

A recent and ongoing phenomenon around the world is the reaction people have had to “The Dress.”  Most of you who are reading this will now sigh and say, “Ah, The Dress.” Those readers who have been living in their bedrooms because they have run out of clean underwear, may not be aware of what […]

Vox Magazine had an interesting article about a new feminist comic book titled “Bitch Planet.” This comic has deep and meaningful ramifications for society’s often misguided and misogynistic culture.

Let’s also be clear about something else: Life in the Boomer Lane is non-aggressive to […]

How Boomers Saved Everything

December 28, 2013

33

While few would argue that boomers discovered fire and invented the wheel and the baby cage, AARP Magazine has a whole new crop of boomer achievements to present in its current issue. In fact, AARP will be devoting an entire year to slobbering over what we boomers have achieved. The first piece is by PJ […]
