Olive Riley

Thanks to Eric Shackle, I've heard about another inspiring woman who, at age 108, has a website called The Life of Riley. There's nothing I can say, really, to top Olive's own words and stories. I encourage you to check it out! Thanks for taking the time to let me know about this, Eric. Much appreciated! Hope you all will check out Eric's website, too!

Maria Amelia Lopez

I heard an inspiring piece on PRI's The World about Maria Amelia Lopez who, at 95 years of age, decided to learn how to use the internet. Her grandson started a blog for her as a birthday present. Because Maria can't type well, she dictates her entries to her grandson who types it all out for her. Right now, she's pressuring officials in her community to make provisions for broadband! Kudos, Maria!
