A few days ago, I was heartened by an article on women online, and now I discover that the ultimate silver blogger is also a woman. María Amelia López was born in Muxía, in Spain, in 1911. As she writes on her blog, A mis 95 años / 95 years old blogger:
My name is Amelia and I was born in Muxía (A Coruña - Spain) on December the 23rd of 1911. Today it's my birthday and my grandson, who is very stingy, gave me a blog.
She now has a readership that could be the envy of any A-lister, and she has recently gone on holidays to Brazil. Her pet hate? Retirement homes, where she says people are drugged to keep them quiet, and they are never offered the opportunity to use the Internet. The Guardian quotes some of her blog posts, including this piece of advice, valid I think for old and young alike:
"There is nothing better than exercising the brain."
