    How about them apples, Meanderer? Maybe people who have difficulty hear on as cell could hear better with this rig.

    July 5th, 2017 was George Jedenoff's 100th Birthday, so, he celibrated in style by skiing at Snowbird. With just enough snow to link together a few turns, George proved his saying that "Age is just a number." George, from every skier on Earth, we want to say that you're our hero.

    Yep they've been standing around with their hands in their pockets for much to long. But I'm encouraged. Many old guys are learning household chores they never knew all those years. Future outlook might be positive!

    "The ghost town of Gothic, Colorado is one of the coldest places in the U.S. Itís been abandoned since the 1920s, but one man ó Billy Barr ó has lived there in a cabin for over 40 years".


    "He has books, a radio and some Bollywood movies to entertain him. But with only weather and the animals as his companions, he began recording data about the snowpack to help pass the time".


    "What was just a hobby became an important treasure trove of data for scientists".

    The Delany Sisters

    This is very old, but Aunt Bea's comment in the diary thread caused me to follow up on the Delany Sisters. There are at least 2 videos. I thought one deserved to be included in this thread. The other video at the bottom is better, but you have to turn the volume way up, and closed caption is way off.

    'The Delany Sisters gained widespread fame after the publication in 1993 of a memoir they called Having Our Say; The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years. They wrote it with Amy Hill Hearth as an oral history from their early days in the Jim Crow South to their arrival in New York City during the Harlem Renaissance to their life in a white suburb.'



    Bessie died in 1999 at age 109. Sadie died in 1995 at age 104.

    The other video
