In the world of the Internet, there is no such thing as old age. The people I talk to everyday on the net don’t see me in terms of years I have spent on the earth. I can pretend to be anyone I want to be behind the keys of my computer.

There were many people who were critical of Steve Jobs that he didn’t go to the mini size immediately. Sometimes you just have to start bigger to get it right. This is perfect. So, if you are thinking of buying an iPad get the mini. The larger sizes might go away forever.
This old lady needs to take another look in the mirror before we go out to celebrate the big 65. Boy do I have guts!
