@ timethief - thanks :D it was a tongue in cheek title, and as you read all the forums and threads you'll know where it comes from. Thanks for the link to your personal blog, v different to your tips one. Will make time to have a proper browse.
@maidie - interesting suggested perspective. In my case I have no grandchildren (impossible as have no children), no arthritis - yet - touchwood, retirement is unlikely as the pension age keeps ever-increasing - work till you drop, and I try and avoid nasty music as I prefer peace and tranquility.
Interesting idea though - how do people view today's 50-year olds? Or even 60-year-olds?
@ hnsaifi - that was a lovely comment, but I personally am not remotely loving (even if the others on this thread are). Just to prove I am not, I should like to point out I am not a guy, I doubt anyone else on here is. Wait! Holds hand up before you tell me it is an acceptable gender neutral term for men and women. It isn't. OK, lecture over.
Next, interestingly, I do read a couple of 'teenage' blogs. That's because they write well, take interesting photos, and have a variety of topics to write about. To me that is the criteria of a decent blog, regardless of age.
Have to say what I don't want is an endless diet of make-up, fashion, pop music, films, and text speak. But nor is that limited to teens.
Interesting not many 50+ year olds wanting to play on here ..... All too busy with their grandkids I guess (I never thought of myself as grandparent age :D)
