As a Later Born Baby Boomer of a Certain Age I have to give us kudos.  We are changing the world.

A story of summer travels to an archeo-astonomically significant site for this Autumnal Equinox.  This is the largest city in Pre-Columbian North America north of Mexico.  So few people know about it, but it is so cool!   #autumnalequinox   #archeoastonomy  
The equinox provides a good reason to look at Cahokia Mounds near St. Louis where rings of wooden posts served as a astronomical tool to mark seasons.

Only a #late-boomer, or #BoomHer can really appreciate the wistful humor of this wonder snippet of memoir.
He wore a white linen suit and looked way hotter than the satirist I remembered from "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" and "Laugh-In"

My annual behind the scenes guide to the BlogHer Annual Conference ‪#‎BlogHer14‬ "where to" more than "how to" – If you are attending the conference there is stuff in here that you need to know.

I have not been able to get my MoJo to engage much recently, but the post I wrote yesterday http://reasoncreek.com/2014/07/10/now-conference-now14-day-2/ shows a shining example of online advocacy that I learned about at this conference.  See the sitting women?  The Montana Judge who gave the adult rapist of a young teen 31 days in jail has been suspended from the bench thanks largely to the coordinated efforts of these two women who live across the country from each other.  The young woman in the front is the founder of the first virtual NOW Chapter.

I am extremely concerned about the tendrils of the Hobby Lobby decision.  This New Yorker article is not as rooted in parody, spoof, or wild  conjecture as you might at first pass believe.  #wahhabilobby
If the Pakistani Taliban organized a closely held American corporation, might its employees be deprived of insurance coverage for vaccines?

I haven't written my BlogHer 14 summary post as yet.  I'm tired - I drove across the country and back during 3 weeks after the conference with husband and dog.  So today, I finally decide to review my pics of the event today.  They suck.  Reviewed other peoples comments... Friends' summaries tend to be more negative than mine overall. I noticed some trends that I haven't heard others mention, so I will write something about this, and something else about Boomer Angst at BlogHer, but in the meanwhile, the aspect of the conference that really was WONDERFUL were the 10 x 10 talks.  Here is the link to the article that links to all of them.  They were worth re-watching for me.  If you were not there, or missed these talks, view them now!  The best take aways are in them.  10 years of:  Women.  Writing.  Perspective.  
The 10x10 presentations made by long-standing community members rank as one of the highlights of BlogHer '14 in San Jose. These intelligent, witty, entrepreneurial, big-hearted, thick-skinned, been-there-lived-through-it-have-the-blog-to-show-for-it people took to the stage and shared the truth of their journey over the past ten years. We, the attendees, learned a lot and came away inspired by what our written word on the web can do. Make sure...

Capturing travel memories can be done in many ways.  The incidental photo is one way.  

Traveling.  On the road since before #BlogHer14 and today is the first day I have time for some quiet reflection.  But oh boy-oh-boy, do I ever have a long and interesting set of posts to create and I am on the road for a couple more weeks!  #25tAnniversaryTrip
Images that could have been overlooked depict the essence of love found in a home.

Why haven't I heard of this type of thing before now?  Am I out of it or do I just have cutting edge friends?  Both?  Never mind, don't answer.  But this looks like fun, and I've participated in Melissa Ford's NaBloPoMo several times on BlogHer.com, read her blog, but I've not read her books... until now! I have to figure out how this all works but I wanna do this!  And when I get a book published, or #publish one myself, I want to encourage this type of #marketing!
You are invited to participate in a Virtual Book Tour for Melissa Ford's Apart at the Seams. It's easy and it's fun! Get the details to sign up here today.

Why would a store like this move every few years? They were on Campbell, then at Foothills, now Speedway? They buy for pennies and sell for dollars. Owner is not a nice guy - heard him berate staff. Lots of staff turn over. Still I've purchased stuff there. Prices are usually better than new.

Breakfast here is wonderful! Yummy deserts. Friendly staff. Salads are big! Great gift shop. Expect lines on weekends.

I look for furniture here and often find JUST what I'm looking for. Prices on furniture range from great to okay. Rarely overpriced and good buys go quickly and most stuff turns over quickly. Also love their books. I find the staff to be helpful and courteous, sometimes the volunteers are a bit gruff, but at 80 I will be too. :-) It is well organized, central, and benefits a charity. I love browsing here and always find something I am looking for. My thrift store of choice.

Great creative co-working space right in the heart of Tucson, AZ in the Pioneer Building. Group presentations that I have attended at Gangplank Tucson have been seminal and/or cutting edge. Blogging, business start-up, science and tech, wiki info... just an amazing stream of info flows through here. Fast internet access, a place to park your but, and a willingness to critique, give input, and add an opinion make this an amazing asset for creative, bleeding edge connections! Synergy rules!
