Read her final entry. Sounds like she was a very nice lady. And if she was a blogger at 108, she was very open about life too. Good for her.

Always inspiring to hear about an active centenarian. And it is so unfortunate that we all can't live longer. These bodies are time bombs. I guess it's just physics. Those little telomeres unravel and then you are toast, to join the bugs and all the life that has passed before you. Such lively spirits, such temporary souls. A complex universe begets complex beings. But we are ultimately hostage to the habits we are programmed with as much as any bird or animal is. Such freedom of will. Such slavery to the inevitable doom.

Did you forget to take your meds? Would you care to explain why she would be "Blogging Straight from Hell"? Please elaborate, provide some details.

What a great lady!

I have a hard time getting the the source. What I want to know is, was she on topix? If so, what was her topix posting name?

Otherwise to live to 108, her lifestyle had something to do with it. I can't imagine living in Australia. So little fertile, liveable land. The other 90 percent of it looks like the moon.

The following is from the temporary blog that was created when she fell ill:

POSTSCRIPT. Mike has just told me that many people are having trouble accessing Olive's blog. Let's hope it's only a temporary glitch. He sends his thanks to all the bloggers who have sent message of condolence through this temporary blog.

Mike says he will approve and post all messages so far sent to him, as soon as possible. Keep trying to access the site, but the problem may take a day or two to fix. So please be patient!

Her real blog will (hopefully again) be at:

Did you see the YouTube link? I'll repost it here:

What a terribly sinful thing to say. That will be 100 Our Fathers, 100 Hail Marys and a public beating of 100 lashes.

It's just some bad politico trying to stir things up again ... don't take everything at face value that you see on message boards.
