Top RV Campsites: Fruita Campground In Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

Capitol Reef National Park“Capitol Reef National Park is known for its cliffs and canyons of red rock, which makes Fruita Campground something of an anomaly. Fed by the Fremont River, which rolls along the campground’s edge, Fruita is literally an oasis in the desert, surrounded by the cool, green shade of historic orchards. During the peak season, most of the 64-tent/RV sites and seven walk-in sites, complete with flushing toilets, running water, and fire pits or grills, can be reserved; during off-season they switch to a first-come first-serve system.”

Cinematic Nostalgia: “When Harry Met Sally” Was The First Romantic Comedy For Boomers

From a Vanity Fair article by Sonia Saraiya

“Ephron and Reiner’s love language pushed the envelope in 1989 in a way that seems rather tame now: As I grew up and began to dabble in romantic partnerships myself, When Harry Met Sally… felt like the rare option I wanted to emulate and embody, and I studied it like a textbook. In many ways, it’s a manual for romantic partnership—a funny, entertaining film that’s closely attentive to the nuts and bolts of falling in love.”

When Harry Met Sally Movie 1989

My first memory of When Harry Met Sally… is that I wasn’t allowed to watch it. When I think about the film now, I see it as a romance—an inverted one, where love does not come until 12 years after first sight, but a love story nonetheless. But When Harry Met Sally…’s unwholesome raciness—the faked orgasm, the f-bombs, the woman who meows in the throes of passion—featured prominently in the film’s marketing campaign. So did the film’s central, provocative, deeply heteronormative question: Can men and women ever “just” be friends? And it needed an R rating to answer that question, too! The film glowed with forbidden allure.

Boomers Online Shopping: “Brandless.com” Offers “Fine Quality” Grocery Items At Low Prices

From a Wall Street Journal article by Jane Black:
Brandless Online Shopping Photo WSJ by F. Martin Ramin“Brandless makes grocery shopping…fun. Yes, you read that right. The site oers thousands of items—granola, dried mango, pearled farro, peanut butter—nearly all priced at $3…
…The food quality is fine; the dried mango, a favorite snack in our family, matched what we get at Trader Joe’s but was less flavorful than the Hawaiian version sold on Thrive.”

Boomers Retirement: “Umbrella” Is An Online Home Repair & Services Marketplace For Seniors

From a Pymnts.com posted article:

Umbrella Boomer Community App 65+ Home repairs“Umbrella is an app that’s meant to connect these people with each other, through a marketplace with a membership model. The app lets seniors sign up for “jobs” and provide their services, like mowing a lawn or painting a fence.

The jobs are charged around $20 an hour, and Umbrella keeps $4 of that. The neighbors can choose to make less money, and the difference goes toward cheaper work for lower-income seniors.

Umbrella costs $199 a year to join. The startup was co-founded by CEO Lindsay Ullman and President Sam Gerstenzang. Both worked at Sidewalk Labs previously, among other places.”
