Two Boomer Women & The Lost Art of Conversation
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!)

Flashback: The Ferry Service: Bah! Municipal Planning: Oxymoron

Flashback: The Ferry Service: Bah! Municipal Planning: Oxymoron

August 3, 2020

This time last year, Mar Sulaika had been riding our local ferry system and had another trip in her future.  To explain: she lives on the mainland, Agnes and other of Mar Sulaika's friends live on the island.

 

The frustrations of ferry travel bump into the vagaries of municipal politics.

 

A discussion of online bookings and its complexities is kind of a hoot this year as, with COVID, doing almost anything/everything online has become the norm.

 

Strange that moving was used as an analogy last year... as Agnes is looking to move this year (again).

Flashback:  Last Year Online Grocery Shopping Wasn’t The Norm

Flashback: Last Year Online Grocery Shopping Wasn’t The Norm

July 27, 2020

Who is Steve? It's a small world!!

 

Some discussion around the convoluted world of branding.

 

Online grocery shopping was not the norm this time last year. A Dutch company had implemented a "Chat Checkout".  So much can change in one short year:  https://projectforgive.org/progressive-supermarket-creates-chat-checkout-to-connect-with-elderly-who-feel-lonely/

 

As editor, I (Agnes) love listening to Mar Sulaika's naivete about this online business space -she's come a long way, baby!  (You can too!)

Flashback: Amazing how much can happen in a year!

As though the apartment fire wasn't enough, Agnes' daughter had their car broken into while in "secure" parking.

Discussion around the problems of rampant population growth without any apparent planning from any level of government... with a mythological tie-in...

Agnes' knee was still being a pain in the knee - she has a love/hate relationship with the BFR, and have you heard about a KneeKG?

Finally, of course, some thoughts on dementia!

 

Two Boomer Women Guest: Robin DeFoe

Two Boomer Women Guest: Robin DeFoe

July 15, 2020

Agnes has her good friend, Robin DeFoe on this week: Robin is one of those special Boomers who still has a mom with her, and she has decided to be caregiver for her mom as dementia claims another lovely person.

Robin has a unique gift and that is building a network marketing business, although most of her work has had to be sidelined as her mom's needs grow.

Robin was introduced to CBD oil to helpher mom - the link to the research she found is below; and Robin is also living proof of the effectiveness of her immune system booster, that link is also below.

 

Full disclosure: Robin will make no money from the CBD link, she will earn a small stipend if you decide to try out her immune system product.

Flashback: In This Time of COVID These Flashbacks Are An Interesting Thumbnail

Flashback: In This Time of COVID These Flashbacks Are An Interesting Thumbnail

July 13, 2020

Agnes is moving again... (I seem to have moved too many times since moving to Victoria, and now that I'm looking to move again, to rehash prior moves in these flashbacks, is a little surreal)

Mar Sulaika's in the money? If this is a flashback, will we get resolution abut the mystery money?

Mar Sulaika was about to come visit Agnes and attend the wedding of a friend....

Apparently Agnes was supposed to be in the Dominican right now...Thanks for nothing, COVID!!

Kashi has passed - the hindsight is interesting here as Mar Sulaika comments that her mom has 'slipped' since the cat died - this year we know this feisty old gal has survived Covid!!

The Caine Mutiny and A Few Good Men... are there any original story lines out there?

Mar Sulaika quotes Willa Catheter - do you know her?

BoowWithABang.com gets kudos from Mar Sulaika.  https://boomwithabang.com/

This time last year we were planning for this podcast. Sorting, Sorting, Sorting...

Expanding Mar Sulaika's website... and her brain.  Interesting hindsight as these things really do take on a life of their own and unfold the way they should.

Agnes is the Analogy Queen this episode - hope you can follow.  When it comes to the discussion of possibilities: if you can dream it, the ability to make it so is probably out there somewhere!

A quick update on Kashi - which leads to the secret lives of cats.
