I'm a baby boomer. Yup, there, I've said it. 

Now you know approximately how old I am. Big deal. According to the Internet, and we all know that everything on there is absolutely true, there are approximately 76 million to 79 million boomers in the U.S., approximately 28% of the population. That's a lot of people!

So, what is a baby boomer?

A pure definition is someone who was born between 1946 - 1964, but it's an elastic group. Other sources say it refers to children of men who served in WWII. Throw in Vietnam, Woodstock and those who like to rebel (and yes, my dog's name is "Rebel") or people who like to boom or make noise, and it becomes a mindset. The one thing I've seen agreement on is that it refers to the upsize in births following WWII.
