 When I'm Sixty-Four...
"Will you still need me?" and "Will you still feed me?" seemed like humorous questions when Paul McCartney first asked them. Upon actually reaching the age of sixty-four, however, they take on a new relevance.  LIFESTYLE
 Wii fit. U fit?
Something amazing has happened in the past few weeks: I got back into a regular daily exercise routine -- and I love it! We had planned on getting the new Wii Fit balance board and software when it first came out, but had never quite gotten around to it. And then a recent hospital stay convinced me that regular exercise might help prepare me for the likely health challenges of the next few decades. After all, aging is not for the faint of heart -- a concept which is literally true for me and many others.

    BOOMERNET CHRONICLE
 Sample Year
1964

According to popular definition, the last of the Baby Boomers is born in 1964. At the same time, many of the oldest Boomers are heading off to college. The Beatles lead the British invasion of America, while the new Johnson administration explores expanding our military role in Vietnam. Important legislation includes the Civil Rights Act and the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, both turning points in American history.

The cost of gas increases to $0.30 per gallon, but Americans are more interested in going to the movies to see "My Fair Lady" and "Mary Poppins" or staying home to watch "Bonanza" or the "Dick Van Dyke Show".

    BOOMERNET TOP 40
 Hits of 1960 - 1964
Top 40

In the early '60's, the AM airwaves became dominated by the driving rhythyms of Detroit's Motown sound, by the polished stylings from the Brill Building scene in Manhattan, and by Phil Spector's L.A.-based derivative, the Wall of Sound.

Song-writing teams like Holland - Dozier - Holland in Detroit and Goffin & King or Barry & Greenwich in New York churned out hit after hit. Their success later paled, however, beside that of Liverpool's Lennon & McCartney. When the Beatles began the British Invasion of America at the end of 1963, popular music would never be the same.
