I’d like to join, using my name (obviously), but they have a 20-character limit, so I have to condense or crop, which I don’t want to do.

Stupid policy imho.

5-25 #1

Call me a nerd but I like learning about the languages used in the micro-societies within our larger one — the Postal Service, doctors, airline pilots, lawyers, gardeners, dog breeders  — you name it — and now this glimpse into White House lingo.  I love it.

I think I had a better day than he did.

The World’s Oldest Blogger

“On December 23rd 2006, my grandson gave me a present, this blog when I was 95 years old … and my life changed … now, I can communicate and interact with the world.”

— Maria Amelia Lopez, a 97-year old Spanish grandmother, thought to be “the world’s oldest blogger,” who died on Wednesday.

What a wonderful story.
