Great news for cold-weather lovers: Fall is here! For the rest of us, time to change our desktop screen savers to pictures of Hawaiian beaches and pile on the sweaters. Whatever the weather, Creating Results will do its best to start your day on a warm note with the "hottest" mature marketing links of the week.

There's a wonderful Yiddish proverb my father has quoted to me frequently: "Man plans, and God laughs." This week's round-up of top baby boomers marketing links touches on plans made and un-made.

1. MOST SHARED: Ever wonder what purchases upscale Baby Boomers and GenXers have planned? Or course you have. These are folks with a net worth of at least $1 million or living in a household with income of at least $250,000, and more than half are planning a luxury purchase this year.
