Older Citizens et al

A few years back my daughter asked me to write down my adventures going around the world. It was a ten-year trip and I started a blog. She also asked me about my childhood, more blogging. It made me realise that Older Citizens such as myself have a contribution to make repositing an era long gone by. We also have had our adventures that should not be lost.

I did some research and several things became apparent. It has been shown that digital literacy can slow down the onset of dementia and those with Alzheimer’s  are actively encouraged to revisit their memories.  What better way to increase digital literacy and improve memory than with a blog. We would be able to revisit values often missing in this 21st-century world. I fondly remember as a young boy in my grandmother’s kitchen, the milkman let himself in,  put the milk in the fridge and took payment from my grandmother’s purse. Trust and honesty somewhat lacking now.

Starting a blog with say WordPress.com is free forever and can be taught in an hour’s lesson. Once WordPress.com is mastered the person may wish to have their own dot com and this will cost €35 per year. Not a lot.

So sign up for your free lesson “Getting started with WordPress.”

(Oh in case you have forgotten all citizens can benefit from blogging, thereby increasing their digital literacy. Click on the image to see)

And I am still here tho Storm and the kitties are long gone. Sigh but that’s ok.  I have largely given up on second life I go in on Sundays for a couple of hours to host for Carmel but it’s very quiet.

I’m still madly registering domains and my latest is pjfb.org how cool is that? The animation at the top of the site is from pjfb.org.

C’est Moi!

I rejoined the Royal Society of Arts and am happy being a Fellow.

I have become an admin on the RSA Fellows’ Forum and through that, I am one of three authors of the Fellows Hub which you can find here.

It hasn’t been released to the public yet but here is a preview

Oh, and there is Tullamore Men’s Shed opened opposite me which is great fun. It’s opposite my front door and I look after the meeting room/computer room.  I designed the site so have a look. There is a communal area and a woodworking shop.  Here is a bench and a chair we built.

So doing well. I have to exercise more so on Monday going back to the gym and start swimming again.

Health is good.

At the start of the new millennium the Dalai Lama apparently issued eighteen rules for living. Since word travels slowly in the digital age these have only just reached me. Here they are.

  1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
  3. Follow the three Rs:
    1. Respect for self
    2. Respect for others
    3. Responsibility for all your actions.
  4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
  5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
  6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
  7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  8. Spend some time alone every day.
  9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
  10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
  12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
  13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
  14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
  15. Be gentle with the earth.
  16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
  17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
  18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
