Spicing up our lives has always been one of goals of humans and probably more so for Baby Boomers!

Back in the late 1940’s when life was simpler, families sat in their home and spent time playing family card games and watching the new-fangled invention called television. They had a choice of three channels, maybe four if their area included Public Television. So with little else to do, couples started having children. Millions of them in fact. From 1945 – 1965 yearly birth increases averaged between 10 – 22% giving the US 78 million “baby boomers” creating a generation that thrived financially, physically and emotionally in the post war era.
