In most other countries, young and old freely mix together, with several generations often living under one roof. But in the United States, that mostly happens in the workplace. Even so, millennials and baby boomers tend to stick with their same-aged cohort, rarely associating out of the office.
New Women’s Groups Focus on Generational Mix unless you mean the generation in their late 30s to early 50s.
Gen Z Can’t Take Over Soon Enough
U.S. housing shortage due in part to reluctant boomer sellers, survey says
Looking at the surveys, Realtor.com saw generational trends play out in an interesting way between baby boomers and millennials.
The Discount Divide: Bringing Value to Millennials and Baby Boomers
While a majority, 76 percent, of baby boomers surveyed said they wouldn’t pay full price for products across every category, millennials are much less affected by discounts
Now We Have to Contend With Gen Z Too?

Hot Takes on Hot Flashes (Not on My Watch)
So, I may expand my coverage from drinking-related bits to broader themes–at least from time to time. I’m definitely not going to stop drinking. I implemented “Drygust” last month in a misguided attempted to de-chunk a little before a vacation and ended up gaining two pounds (so middle-aged, amirite?). (Argh, and now two months have passed since I originally wrote this and I’ve gained another 8 pounds–SSRIs are not my friend.)
I’ve decided to revive this as a standalone blog and go hard on the subject. I’ve had four years (Jesus) to acclimate to the notion of middle-age, and I’m starting to come around and make peace with it. It’s not a bad place to be.
But if I’m being honest, half the impetus is being driven by an unwinnable internal inter-generational feud and the need to claim what’s mine. Each passing year means millennials get that much closer to owning bone loss and comfortable shoes. The oldest in that cohort will be hitting 40 in five years, and we’re never going to hear the end of of it. Hot takes on hot flashes, making atrophied vaginas cool (yes, I’m obsessed with shriveled vaginas).
I will not let that stand (even if it requires a cane)!
The Food Industry (And All Of Retail) May Be Paying Too Much Attention To Millennials
The focus on Millennials seem to take up most of the marketing, advertising and retailing news these days. From this generation’s demanding increased transparency to more cooking at home, their desires are changing the food, nutrition and retail landscape. But what about our beloved Boomers? You know those 76 million Americans who changed the world forever and now are heading into retirement!
