A favorite blogger writes: "What has happened to all the women who are done with child-rearing? Young voices permeate the blogosphere." What do sixty-something women do with their lives, especially if they do not have full-time jobs? We're here to find that out.

It's a beautiful day - feels more like September than November. Sunny and crisp. If this is global warming I'll enjoy it for what it's worth. I hate to go and waste the afternoon at the bridge table, but that's the plan. It will be dark soon after I get home.
Today is the grand opening of the new Whole Foods in West Orange, so of course I went to check it out. It's in an oddly downscale location, in an overgrown strip mall, squashed between a Wendy's and a K-Mart. Should be interesing to see what's there in five years. Beyond being just plain BIG, there are whole categories of things that the smaller Montclair store just doesn't have, such as the raw bar, burrito and pizza stands, artisanal chocolates, olive oil tasting, bulk spices, clothing (!) - and a huge assortment of help-yourself hot and cold foods, including a wide range of tempting-looking Indian specialties. Got some free swag, too: a tote bag, water bottle, Valrhona chocolate bar, Lara bar. All in all, a good place for an upscale bag lady like me to hang out.
