Some of the best things on earth are on the Web... and nowhere else. On this page, we introduce you to some of those treasures:

Working Later is a blog aimed at the boomer generation... those of us who have yet to retire.

Our favorite New Age artist is Jeff Bjorck. Listen to portions of his terrific album here: http://www.purepiano.com. Visit his site and listen to selections from his 2 CD's. Better yet; buy them. If you like New Age music, you'll like his stuff.


Sue Kramer wrote BBHQ to tell us about her book, "Lynette": "While the novel is set at the Jersey shore, much of the book takes a look back at the '60s as Lynette Wyckoff tells about running away with her boyfriend to Greenwich Village in 1967 to follow Abbie Hoffman and the civil rights/protest movement as it explodes across the country. Some of the things the two 19-year-olds take part in are the Levitation of the Pentagon, the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and Woodstock as they explore the civil rights movement, the Vietnam protests, and the many refractory groups from the Diggers to the SDS and the Black Panthers."

The BBHQ Feature Album is "Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)," by Simon & Garfunkel. If you were fortunate enough to see them in concert in 2003, I do not have to sell you. The concert was terrific! This album collection includes 55 songs, plus their new recording, "Citizen of the Planet," and one of the songs sung by the Everly Brothers during the concert. The DVD was recorded during their concert in Madison Square Garden in 2003. For any S&G fan, this is a must have! But then, you knew that already, didn't you?  Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)

The BBHQ Feature Book is “Bobby Rydell – Teen Idol on the Rocks.” This is a “behind the scenes” story of one of the boomers’ first rock n’ roll stars. Told in the first person, Bobby chronicles his short ride to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his glide through the 70s and 80s, and how he nearly lost it all. Relax; it has a happy ending. Bobby was (and is) a “normal” Philly guy... with an absolute love of music and an amazing gift. For any fan of early rock n’ roll, it’s a wonderful story. And yes, Bobby Rydell is still on tour, playing to boomer fans all over the world. Click here for a closer look at the book.
