--Dateline Boomer, WV
The name "Boomer" and its sherbet-colored cottages hanging charmingly from the mountainside distinguish this village of 500. On April 18th, National Animal Cracker Day, starting at 10:00 AM, author James Thibeault hopes to add a third distinction to his neighbors' town by giving baby boomers of Boomer a copy of his new book, "Boomers: 400+ Tips and Hings from the Generation that Refuses to Grow Old".
Thibeault, a boomer wellness advocate, plans to bicycle to the state Capitol in Charleston along Route 60 / Midland Trail Scenic Highway, giving away 65 copies of his wisdom- and wellness-focused book to 65 baby boomers. Taking his own advice #203: "Riding a bicycle and living a life - both work best if you keep moving," the 66-year-old boomer hopes to inspire others of his generation to live with a BOOM!
#411: 65 - No speed limit on changes, no brakes for age.
