Boomers Life

You are a Baby Boomer if you were born be- tween 1946 and 1964. Together we grew up sharing experiences, special people, and great music. We also share current challenges and an open future ahead of us. Boomers Life is about awakening the desire among Boomers to do things with the great life we have. Browse if you like, share experiences if you can, complain if you must. This is our world, and welcome to it.

For Baby Boomers the classics were

rewritten to "Veni, vidi, video."

I came, I saw, I watched

music videos on MTV.

Boomers in 1946

There were relatively few of us around, since this was the first year of the Baby Boom generation. World War II was over, Dads were coming home, and Moms were probably tired of waiting to start that family! I was born in this particular batch.

Boomers in 1955

Rock and roll was just emerging, and half of all Boomers had been born by this year. Elvis Presley was getting rolling, and Ray Charles was doing his thing. President Eisenhower had been a great general, but now his advisors were getting him, and us, entangled in a place called Vietnam.

Boomers in 1964

The last Boomers were born this year, just as the first were graduating from high school. John F. Kennedy was shot the year before, and President Johnson was deep in the Vietnam War. The Rolling Stones released their first album.

The Summer of Love happened in San Francisco and all across the country. A movie called The Graduate reflected our life and featured the Boomer sounds of Simon and Garfunkel.

Boomers in 1969

The musical and social phenomenon known as Woodstock took place in upstate New York. At about that same time Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon. A notable year, from mud to moondust.

Disco and alternative rock fought it out for control of the airwaves. The Bee Gees sang and John Travolta danced in Saturday Night Fever. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band toured with Born to Run. People waited in lines to see the first Star Wars movie.

Boomers in 1983-87

After all those years of being different, we started getting absorbed into the system. Even then, Boomers Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and others shook things up by launching Apple/personal computers into the big time. After work or the chores of the day we saw movies like Flashdance and Dirty Dancing with their offbeat tributes to our music.

Boomers in 2013

So a Boomer is now President of the United States. Another is the richest man in the world, Bill Gates, pondering all the social issues he can address with his loot. You and I may not be in their rarefied atmosphere, but we can still do a few things of our own. The game of life goes on!

"With a Little Help from My Friends"

by John Lennon

and Paul McCartney

What would you think if I sang out of tune,

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

And I'll try not to sing out of key,

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.

What do I do when my love is away,

Does it worry you to be alone?

How do I feel by the end of the day,

Are you sad because you're on your own?

No, I get by with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.

Do you need anybody?

I need somebody to love.

Could it be anybody?

I want somebody to love.

Would you believe in a love at first sight?

Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time.

What do you see when you turn out the light?

I can't tell you but I know it's mine.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.

Do you need anybody?

I does need someone to love.

Could it be anybody?

I want somebody to love.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,

Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends,

Oh, I get high with a little help from my friends.

Yes, I get by with a little help from my friends

With a little help from my friends.
