We've all seen them, those cute stories entitled "Forty under Forty" or even "Thirty under Thirty" about young people accomplishing big things.

Well, it's time for us oldsters to have our day, us late blooming boomers. I want to write a story called "Fifty over Fifty" about fifty remarkable men and women who have come into prominence later in life.

Maybe they were homemakers, schoolteacher or insurance salespeople who launched a new career. Maybe they struggled their whole life at writing or painting or philosophizing and are finally getting the recognition they deserve.

Maybe they just came up with some brilliant idea or program that has made a difference in their community.

Whatever, as the kids say, if you know someone who could fit this description, send in their story to and I'll post the fifty winners here on the Blog. (Heck, I'll post them all, and YOU vote on the winners!)

Go ahead and nominate yourself.

Tell your friends and colleagues. This could be fun.
