Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be moving to a foreign country to live, let alone a country in the Middle East. Over the 2009 Christmas and New Year’s holidays, my husband Roger and I discussed what we wanted the next part of our life to be like. He thought that before retiring, he would like to do one more airport project but only if he could find something very interesting. I half-jokingly agreed that would be fine but could he try for an exotic location? As usual, Roger came through and soon we were headed to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. This blog is a recap of our "leap-of- faith" wanderings around the Middle East and beyond. We joyfully share these expat experiences.

BLOGGING BOOMERS CARNIVAL #232 . . . Disappearances, Shootings,True Confessions and Prune Juice???

Today, the Accidental Lacavorehas her guest appearance on Emeril's Table as well as the pleasure of hosting the 232nd Blogging Boomers Carnival. If you’re not familiar with the Carnival (or BBC as we affectionately call it), it’s a diverse group of Baby Boomer bloggers, having fun writing about all kinds of things. So come, join the fun! 

Have you notice when you turned 45 or 50, that you rarely saw women like you reflected on TV, in commercials, on the news, in magazines, or movies?
Did you ever wonder why? Laura Lee has research on the disappearance of women over 50(and check out the great quote about women and the CIA)!
When we’re not disappearing, we’re worried about well-being. SoBabyBoomer asks, “What defines well-being for boomer women?”
Speaking of well-being…which is more painful, car maintenance or a dental exam? Lucie at Midlife Musings says “Car Repairs, Just Shoot Me!” She says there are two things that are guaranteed to bring me to my knees; computer and car repairs.

Tom Sightings took a little trip to find lights and electricity, and a little warm weather, and along the way, at Who Knows How to Drive? he made some observations about what kind of people drive certain kinds of cars — who you can trust on the road, and who you should watch out for as they speed by in the third lane. You might be a little surprised (but he doesn’t expect you’ll take his observations too seriously).
Our Dubai based blogger Katie Foster has found the most expensive garage in the world! Aren’t you curious?
And then there’s this true confession: I actually like prune juice, says The Boomer Chronicles
To end this carnival, a really interesting question: If you had your life to live over, what would you do differently?       Anne at Contemporary Retirement would love to know. .  . and so would we!
