“GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE. THIS IS OLIVE HERE.”
107 YEAR-OLD MS. OLIVE RILEY AND HER “BLOB”
At the ripe old age of 107, the spritely Ms. Olive Riley of Broken Hill, Australia, has become an overnight blogging or (as she calls it) “blobbing” sensation. With the help of her good friend Mike (who types for Olive while she tells her stories), she rolled out “Life of Riley” on February 16th of this year and has already attracted thousands of visitors representing all age groups from around the world. Filled with delightful photos and interesting stories and conversations, in her debut Olive described a trip she took to Brisbane to visit her grandchildren, where she went swimming and drank Shandys (beer mixed with lemonade).

TOAST! OLIVE HAS A NIP OF SHANDYS
In her second posting, she became quite the social activist and a crusader for the rights of common people. That article talked about her indignant reaction to an investigation being conducted about a local farmer who’s being banned from growing “lettuces” on his own land, and it turns out that Olive may well have saved the day for the farmer’s livelihood. In her latest post, made about five days ago, Olive continues her talk about the “lettuces” problem (and the progress that’s being made in trying to save the farmer’s right to grow his “lettuces”), the virtues of false teeth and reminescent memories about war.
By the time of the third posting, her “blob” had attracted an audience of over 190,000 readers (and it continues to grow rapidly). You should really make sure to check out Miss Olive’s articles, as well as the comments that people have made in response to her posts. You’ll see the international spotlight that she’s grabbed!
