About this site




Richard Szpin, old codger dedicated to helping older adults 55+.

Why older adults 55+
First, I am one. Second, I am a life long learner, many older adults are not, That bothers me. Learning enriches life. If this sounds preachy, leave, because my website will often preach, preach a message of instruction, preach a message of direction and preach a message of suggestion. Often it will say, “should” instead of “consider.” You may not like the style. Many don’t. Too bad. It is that way and it so remains. If you find that discomforting, then….thanks for reading this…and ‘ciao!’ 

   Learning has improved my life endlessly and as my life gets better, I would like to help others improve their lives in the same way. In this day and age, the Internet and technology open the portals to more learning. Use them and your life will be enriched.

Old people don’t explore
Old people do not explore for a variety of reasons: they see no need to explore; they are satisfied with where they are in their lives; they do not have the devices needed to explore and use technology; they are too embarrassed to admit what they don’t know something; but most importantly, in the words of Rhett Butler, “They frankly don’t give a damn.”

They have every right to stay where they are. God bless ’em.

The rest of you
The rest of you, welcome! Our site is dedicated to helping you as much as we can. We will try to assist with technology and related topics; we will try to help with information and direction to important information. We will point you in directions where you can find help if we can’t assist you. 

Old people can be a pain. In my books, old people who live with enthusiasm, motivation and drive are a joy. I hope I belong to the latter group. I hope you do too.
