About this site



Richard Szpin: senior, website developer/manager, blogger, writer too!

As I am a senior, I thought I should dedicate my site to older adults. I’ve discovered, some older adults are really don the role, acting old when they are still capable of doing much more. Pushing up the grass ain’t for me yet. I may ache, pain, whine and complain but I will do it from the green side of the lawn. 

Topside and underside gardening
I am a life-long learner and continue to learn more and more every day. Many older adults are already working on their lily roots. I aint ready to garden from the underside or at least I continue to be granted time to be a topside gardener. So I cheer the many others who refuse to start that the underside garden work just yet. Bravo folks…imwitchya. Strange thing though, women, who garden a lot more than men in real life, eschew becoming alter-gardeners also. Bravo ladies! Imwitchya, for sure.  

Learn, learn, learn
Learning enriches life. Learning improves living. Learning enriches my life improving it in countless ways. In this day and age, the Internet and technology open the portals to more learning. Use them, your life will become richer. Use whatever ways, paths you have to learn more and improve your life.

Explore more
Old, young, middle-aged, who cares…just explore more. Try new things, try things that interest you but which you never thought to try. Even try things that don’t interest you…just to see what happens. Go for it!

Garden the underside later
You’re alive…recognize it from all the aches and pains, things you can’t do anymore. But also recognize that you can still do a lot, maybe not as much as last year or the year before. Who cares….you’re still going. Maybe not as strong…but you’re goin’.

Our site is dedicated to helping you those who ain’t ready to do the push ’em up gardening yet.  Bravo….keep going, keep doing it, keep at it. It may be a struggle, becoming increasingly challenging too often too quickly, but better to be challenged than to push up “dem roots!”

Use my site to push yourself
You’re not ready to do that push ‘dem roots’ gardening yet….so explore my site, lots or use it to inspire you and motivate you to do more. Get up and do it!

Ageing is a challenge but it is one not given to everyone. You were given this wonderful opportunity, to age. Make the most of it.

Welcome to my website.
