About Me: Baby Boomer

About Me

My name is Judith.

I am a Boomer.  Boomer is short for Baby Boomer.  A baby Boomer is Defined as “ a person born in the years following World War ll, when there was a temporary marked increase in the birthrate.”  Typically, the range of years the early 1940s to 19 64.  Us Baby Boomers represent a relatively large demographic.  It is because of this that trend in the economic make-up of the globe, tend to follow us.


                                             About Me

I went through life doing everything I “should” and in the seemingly correct order.  I left home, went to University, Got a teaching job, got married, had 2 children, got divorced…. You know the story.

Things started to take an interesting turn when I got close to retirement age, which is where I am now.

I had more time on my hands that I could control, and I had reached a point where money and all the worries that accompany it, were not so much of an issue.

I decided to make changes about me and do some new things.

I approached Wine as a tool to get me to social events.  I drank a bit of wine in the past, but it was not a big focus.  I started going to Wine Tastings to socialize with new people who were close to my age and status.  The result was a burgeoning Love of Wine!

I started to learn about not only wine, but all the things that accompany it.  I was hooked!

Being a Canadian from the prairies, I was pleasantly surprised how these people have adapted what they grow indigenously to make into some lovely wines.

I also have ready access to the Okanagan Valley, which has so many wineries and wines to sample, I could never run out in my lifetime!

I decided to share this excitement with others, and this website was born.

I do not claim to be a wine expert, but I am a wine enthusiast.  I am an introvert by nature, so wine really helps!

I hope you will join me as I investigate everything wine, from a boomer perspective.

    Hello Judith, and how wonderful that your new hobby is going to help many people, myself included!
    I am also near the Okanagan, and the many wineries in our neighborhood, but I admit to not taking advantage of that, and so I do not know much about it. I look forward to reading more of your articles and learning what I need to know!

      Thank you for the comment. I love it when I get to travel to the Okanagan. I hope to live there in a few years.

      Thank you for the comment. If you know someone who knows their way around, defer to them to choose a winery. Otherwise, make use of a local wine tour, they know the best places, and they do the driving.

    Hello, Judith. I am excited to see that I will have a place to come to learn about wine. I don’t drink too much wine, but since moving back to Texas, there are many wineries in my surrounding area. Hence, I think I will be visiting your site soon 🙂

      Than you for the comment. People born in the late 1960’s to early 1980’s are called Generation X.

    Being a “boomer”myself, I appreciate the post and the “shout out” for us boomers. It is great that we can sometimes segregate ourselves and enjoy the fruits of our labor. Our generation should be allowed since I think we as a whole have experienced the greatest changes to our lifestyles.
    I like the website very much and look forward to future posts!!
    Keep up the good work.
