Greetings from Sydney, Australia.

Australia's Olive Riley,aged 108, who lives in an aged care hostel at Woy Woy,50 miles north of Sydney, Australia, is probably the oldest of the world’s 112.8 million bloggers and its oldest YouTuber.

She celebrated her 108th birthday on October 20, 2007.She was born in Broken Hill in 1899, when Sydney was the capital of the British colony of New South Wales, ruled from London by Queen Victoria.

Physically frail but mentally alert, Olive raised her three children on her own, survived two world wars , the Great Depression of the 1930s, and worked as a barmaid, an egg sorter, and a station (ranch) cook.

Olive’s blog, The Life of Riley, has a huge Internet following. Prepared by her helper, international film maker Mike Rubbo, and based on his interviews with Olive, it attracts hundreds of enthusiastic comments from many countries, and from bloggers of all ages.

The London (UK) newspaper The Sun recently published a story about Olive:

Best wishes, Eric.
