At the Very Beginning....

OK, here it is: Day One of my new blog.  Although, actually it is night time!  No matter, I've created a blog, and all by myself.  Which, considering what a techno-nerd I am, is incredible.

I hope I can customize this blog later, with sidebars, photos and all sorts of "cool stuff", but not tonight, as I barely know what I am doing!

The purpose of this blog is to talk about ageing, mainly ways to say to it, "not now, thanks.  Come back later.  MUCH later."

All of us "baby boomers" want to stay healthy and dynamic until the very last day, thanks very much. We hope to be hot air ballooning, sky-diving, and having a gay ol' time til the very last breath.  Are we being realistic, or just kiddin' ourselves? 

Well, I hope to examine that concept in future posts.  Things about health, attitude, what science has discovered/uncovered, or decided is too weird to be bothered with.

The thing about being realistic is, I've found, is that there is NO SUCH THING.  What is "realistic" for one person is just a pipe dream for someone else.  It's like the terms, "expensive" or "large", it all depends on how you look at it, and what you are comparing it to.

Having said that, I'm going to close off and publish before I mess this whole thing up and it all disappears!

Til next time.


  1. ha ha, I recognise all of this. I am 58, to be 59 in April. Blogger since November 2012 after having uploaded to the Style Forum of the site 40plusstyly.com since March 2012.
    We ladies will get there I am sure.
    I am not into health or such things as I know what is good for me: sporting for 2 x 1 hour every week, tummy exercises 3 times a week for 15 minutes, eat healthy food, not too much etc etc. I do all that but I enjoy really nice things as well. My motor is adorning myself, so clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery everything. Hope to visit you more often. See how you go.
