Ninety-Five Year Old Amelia Lopez Gets Her Blog on

When Amelia Lopez from Sanxenxo Pontevedra, Spain turned 95, she got more than a cake for her birthday, she got her very own blog. Amelia jokes that her stingy grandson decided to set up a personal blog for her once he noticed how intrigued she was with the Internet. As one of the oldest bloggers, Amelia has about 60,000 readers from all around the world.
Her personal blog is written in Spanish and contains a good mix of memory and chat, with Amelia telling stories about her childhood and her experiences during the Civil War. "No one pays any attention to old women any more. Not many people love us. But I was surprised by the Internet, because young people who were 18 years of age, or 14 or 15, tell me about their lives and what they think and ask my advice," says Lopez. This story puts a huge smile on my face, just like the video of the seniors playing the Wii...Now if only I could understand Spanish!
