Internet News   Internet News : Happy Birthday Olive
   posted by tomazkid on 19-Oct-2007 2:19:47 (2291 reads)
Olive Riley in Australia will celebrate her 108th birthday tomorrow, October 20.

It is an age worthy of respect, as not everyone lives to celebrate birthdays with 3 digits.
What is a bit unusual though, is that she has her own blog on the Internet.

@Magic

Heh, I just thought an 108-year old lady with a blog of her own was worth a news-item rather than just a forum-thread.

You mean she doesn't use an Amiga? Then I'm with Magic on this one. Thinking there was an old lady in my country who used an Amiga, hmpf!

@Hypex

Well, it is in the "Internet news" category.

If you can have blogs when you are 108-years old, I guess we all can keep the Amiga forums alive for at least 70-90 years more, while we wait for the hardware

A blog....
written by a person who has just turned 108...
and who ALSO happens to be a woman...

I think this is outstanding Internet News!

AND, Joyful News, for once!

Happy Birthday! Well done Olive! You keep it up now, you hear?

Happy birthday

Impressive that she writes her own blog... my grandfather is 95 and still drives his bike in his town, goes driving it to the market to buy food, goes to the pub to read newspapers and see playing with cards and still has good sense of humour and you can talk with him about news, sports and whatever happens in the world. He's just getting a little deaf and you have to raise the voice to talk with him, but other than that he's quite well.

So remember... keep using your bike as it will keep your blood flowing to your brain and you will meet interesing people ;-P

This will be the the typical age of the Amiga user in coming years, so definitely related news

Happy Birthday Olive!

When this woman was born there were no computers, blogs or message boards.

is't it great that she has experienced all of this - and MORE - in all those 108 years!

good for her!

staying young means keeping your mind active.

take note, kids!
