If you're a Baby Boomer, you'll know if you are one, your life is full. Busy
is a word we use often. Your lives are busy with family, work, chores and
errands. Frantic, might be a better description. It's called life in the fast
Baby Boomers want to have it all, and get it all done now, if not sooner.
Have you taken notice of what you are doing? Why you are so busy? Are you
sitting in the doctor's waiting room? Are you stuck in traffic? Do you spend
time on your lunch hour doing busy work for your boss?
With a new iPod, you can fill those lost minutes and hours with guilt free
time spent on yourself. The New York Times can be read to you each day.
You can listen to the latest bestseller listed in Oprah's book club. Music
without commercials is available anytime. The latest podcasts are accessible

and get a load of laundry started, all while getting in another chapter of the
newest mystery. You can charge up your Mp3 player every night, at the same time
it is loading with the latest podcasts. This process only takes about an hour
and then it's ready to go.
Do you have someone that is visually impaired in your life? An iPod would be
a fantastic gift. The best would be one you loaded up with hours of books, music
and podcasts. This would be a gift that would last a long time. How about
loading it with more goodies every year? I paid a neighborhood teen to find tons
of things online and then download them to my father-in-law's player. I plan to
do the same for many years on his birthday. What a treat for for an active Baby
Don't let this technology pass you by. You can do it!
