Crazy Old Man Starts New Blog

Last Update: July 05, 2017

Last Saturday I got a wild hair and purchased a domain focused on teenagers.

Now why would am 85 old man who is dying of heart disease do such a thing? It 's ridiculous!

Yes, the site is up and running after with some theme troubles, trying different themes.

My family just laughs at my silly behavior:

"Grandpa, there is always tomorrow."

"Dad. It will keep you going!"

"Grandpa, you still get out of bed in the morning."

Maybe it is because I have unbridled optimism. Maybe it's because I'm just plain stupid. Maybe it's because my sites can go to my granddaughter if she wants them.

Whatever it is, it shows that I'm old and senile.

Well, I've got to get back to that site. I like to be finished with my day's work by 10:30 AM.

Move Over, Dom, Jay, Steve, Veronica!

I'm a coming!

John

I just love the attitude; by the way, you will not keep the monopoly on 'crazy old man' ideas, if I have my way. I am not quite 70, so have a way to go, but I am certainly getting there.

It's been hot here so I can't go outside for a walk. Maybe that's why I decided to do this. lol There must be some excuse, Peter.

I think it's great. It's a wonderful feeling to know you have purpose for each day...to have a reason for getting up each day and communicating with the world...to attempt to help others. And the wonderful feeling that comes when someone is helped.

Hello TJ:
I have to admit I really like your attitude and although I'm only 70, you make me more enthusiastic to keep plugging away at IM work because you're a great example of how long the mind keeps working and the spirit needs nourishment. I'l like to look at your website about teenagers as I have two grand children who will be heading into that age. Looking forward to it. Cordially, David

Hi, Jay! I still fret over you being so sick years back. I'm glad you are back in groove with your great tutorials. I guess that young fellow is getting big. Maybe you have added others. My new site is http/www.TeenOClub.com It has been slow on view and preview after publishing, but I adjusted the W3 Total Cache plugin settings and that may have helped. Great if you look at the site. I sure would like to get on that train in Portland, grab my grandkids in Seattle and continue on to Vancouver. Out last time there was way too short because we had to get down to Seattle for the weekend. That was the last time Pat was able to travel but we saw one heck of a lot of western Canada. John

Go, John! Never too old - and you can show those teenagers a thing or two! They are probably pretty proud of you; Hope to take a leaf out of your book (I'm not getting any younger!)
