The Life of Riley

This is Olive, who at 107 is probably the worlds oldest blogger.

G'day all, I'm feeling all Australian at the moment having just
come across a wonderful new blog site (Olive calls it her blob)
which she writes in conjunction with her carer Mike.

This blob has fascinating insights into life in Australia in the early
1920 and beyond, it will do your hearts good to go and visit


And for the best April 1st prank in years check this link.

Hi Peter

How's the eye? Isn't Olive a wonder? Mike asked me to contact the Courier-Mail about her, so I did. To our excitement Olive and Mike were interviewed...but, they're not printing the interview as, according to the C-M, it doesn't have enough Queensland content.

What a lot of absolute bs! I thought the human interest part of a 107-year-old lady with all the history of her life and her own blog would be the angle. Apparently not. Makes you want to puke, doesn't it?

Talk to you later.

I do not have chickens, Peter. I wish I did, but city life is not for chickens... at least, not where I live. LOL

I think it's wonderful that 107 year old woman is blogging.

BTW, thanks for stopping by. :)

What an amazing woman. How wonderful that she is doing this. I think she is great.

Someone should get her onto one of the current affair programmes, if the "Courier Mail" has its head up its nether regions about publishing a story about her.

What a wonderful woman, fancy being "into" blogging at 107 ... that's pretty cool !!

Hope the eye is doing well.

Take care, Meow

Gidday Peter,
Just had a read of Olive's blob.
What an amazing woman she is and at 107. The internet has a lot to answer for and then there's blogging (some good and some awful), but then you come across a blog (blob) like Olive's and this shows what good can come of blogging and the net.

Hey Peter, I wish you had said something about this not working with septic tanks. Man, now I'm embarrassed.

Wow 107 and blogging. Her life would be one I would like to read about.

BTW I am happy they dont have trucks like that on the road here either.
The dbl trailers are scary enough now.
