Hello New World!

Here we come, two old geezers who have something to say!!!!

01 transparancyWe have been around for better than half a century, a time that was good to seniors. We are grateful for a good life and the past American prosperity. As we move up into the twenty-first century we find we are up to speed. We know computers and we even use a smart phone!  When our fat fingers hit the right keys we can even TEXT!

Most grandparents work and we run three businesses Picture Lady,
Small Business Prosperity and The Aging Shoppe.

Neither of us were born in America, but we have taken time to study the heritage of our adopted country.  We have fallen in love with the American Constitution.

Where we differ from other seniors is that it is long, long ago that we went to work on a 9-5 schedule and we have almost forgotten what this feels like. Our kids remind us, as do our loyal customers and we feel their stress. We have been around long enough to remember a corporate world that was one big happy family and where those running the show were kind to their workers

As we introduce ourselves in this blog, I want you to know that we lean towards optimism and we do believe it is going to get better. You will find biting sarcasm and satire here, but don’t think for a minute that we think we are poised on the brink of the unthinkable. No doom and gloom here!

We shy away from both the Alt LEFT and the Alt RIGHT; holding an Independent View. We think that what is of more importance, and what is causing more upset than either is the Digital Revolution.


We are Grandma Thunder and the Griping Grandpa and we write with tongue in cheek.  We have been around long enough to have the self confidence to speak up about what needs to get changed.

Welcome to our blog. Come and see us often.

Hello New World!.

Quote for the Week

I want to be part of things that are tangible, beautiful, and soulful, rather than just give in to the digital age. But when I talk to people about this they say, “Yeah, I know what you mean,”
and then stare a their mobiles
