  • Where the 65+ Population Lives

    This list really surprised me.  More than 50 % of the 65 + population live in 9 states.  They live in California, Florida, New York, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and New Jersey.  

    Most seniors stay in their own homes in their 70s and 80s.  Wonder where I will be when I am 70? What about you?  As we age we will have a spectrum of housing choices.  We will take a took at those tomorrow.

    Have a great fall evening.

  • Ideal retirement location

    When asked to describe the ideal retirement location what would you say?  I think of warm weather and a location close to my family.  Studies show retirees want a low cost of living and they want to be near family.  Also important to them is access to quality health care and many want to live near the lake, river or ocean.  Appears Peachtree City is an excellent place to retire, not to mention the cool golf cart paths.

    Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

    Tomorrow we look at where the 65+ population lives,

    Okay bloggers, sorry I missed yesterday.  I went to the Gator homecoming football game and well it did not turn out so well.  It was fun being in Gainesville and remembering all the good times I had there but he game was a disappointment.  It was also great to see my Baby Boomer mom.  

    Today's Generational topic is Baby Boomers.  They were born in the years from 1946 -1964.  Their formative experiences include Woodstock and the hippie culture.  They also experienced the assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King, and Bobby Kenndey.   They are know to be ambitious, optimistic and hardworking!  

    A few famous people include:  Clinton, Madonna, Oprah and Bill Gates.

    The market is made up of many generations.  Today I will cover the G.I. Generation.  This group was born from the years 1901 - 1926 and would be aged 109 - 84 years as of 2010.  Most are patriotic and loyal and they coined the phrase "senior citizen."

    Movies, Music, TV:  Big Band, Jazz, Casablanca and The Honeymooners.
