Two Boomer Women & The Lost Art of Conversation
COVID and Other Crises - Fix Them!

COVID and Other Crises - Fix Them!

October 5, 2020

Joys of the internet today: Agnes sounds like she's calling in from her submarine.

COVID strikes Trudy's care home again. Should Covid rules be enfored?  and is Mar Sulaika sliding back into that discarded career of investigative reporting?  Revolution at an individual level?

Needing and finding work these days and fixing our crises...

"hold me, squeeze me, bite my head"?? - about the 14 minute mark...

Are you selling art online? Agnes might be going to school.  

Outlook as an email provider and, before I forget, memory banks.

Two Boomer Women, Catching Up

Two Boomer Women, Catching Up

September 7, 2020

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.

Is Facebook a spoiled brat?   

What's to be done about over-authoritarian authority?

Just another conversation with Two Boomer Women!

Nude bodies on the beach... vive la France!

The move goes sideways... of course it does!

Two Boomer Women have a random conversation today, plus a bit of PoP confusion.

Short and Sweet and Deja Vu

Short and Sweet and Deja Vu

August 24, 2020

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 wasn't enough... wait for it, Agnes got to add to her move glee. trauma?

Moving… and There’s Still Fire In Our Souls!!

Moving… and There’s Still Fire In Our Souls!!

August 20, 2020

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 afternoon)

Mar Sulaika questions Agnes' organization around the move.... hahahahaha!!!!!  

Finally, the "move to" of choice given we may be mid-60s but we still see possibilities - hope you can identify.

Flashback:  August 2019 Seems So Simple Now, In Retrospect

Flashback: August 2019 Seems So Simple Now, In Retrospect

August 17, 2020

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: distortions in memory...

A short lesson in cyber security (timely given the goings-on at the CRA).

Agnes Flies Solo - With a Tribute to “Mar Had Problems With…”

August 13, 2020

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.

Re: Podcasts... can anyone front Agnes to the tune of >$8 grand?  (It's such a great idea!)

Finally, an invite: create the conversation, be a guest on Two Boomer Women!

Flashback:  Agnes was moving this time last year, and here she is moving again - this has to stop!

Early reviews of Mar Sulaika's website are great!

Mar Sulaika going through a too-busy time; Agnes gives us some insight as to why Pissed On Podcast came so easily to her.

A beach barbeque with a music fest down the beach - how times have changed!

Mar Sulaika and her projects, and a few health issues.  Should doctors be tactile?

Two Boomer Women Guest: Gen-X Woman/Mom Michelle Geyer

Two Boomer Women Guest: Gen-X Woman/Mom Michelle Geyer

August 6, 2020

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 of leaving babies in the care of another woman - she decided to be a stay-at-home mom.

So many of us can identify with all the stages of personal reflection and evaluation that mothers go through... if the story of this woman isn't quite the same as our Boomer-story, Michelle might be your daughter... she's worth listening to for that reason alone!  (She's worth listening to for a bunch of reasons but you know what I mean!)
