I am a baby boomer who returned to college via distance learning, and received a bachelors degree in 2008.  Making a living from home has been my main goal since then, and although I may not always be a beginner, I am always beginning.  Writing has always been my passion, besides mothering.  Two lovely grown daughters and a granddaughter keep me young! I have a blog: Boomer Galaxy - it is for baby boomers and everyone else interested in cyberspace and all things related.  Remember, those born from 1946 -1964 constitute a whole range of ages.  So, visit my blog and keep on writing and reading.
