The nuts and bolts of Time Goes By have needed care and repair for some time. There is still more to do, but I have spent a few hours under the hood tidying some sloppy markup that was causing problems and updating a couple of lists.
It’s embarrassing that some of the additions to the Geezer Flicks list have been waiting since February to be included. Here are the 12 new films suggested by readers which are marked with a NEW symbol on the list page. Titles there link to further information at the Internet Movie Database. Thank you to everyone who took the time to email these.
The Bucket List
The Evening Star
Goodnight, We Love You (documentary)
Man of Flowers
Surfing for Life (documentary)
Tea with Mussolini
A Woman’s Tale
Suggestions are welcome – guidelines are on the Geezer Flicks page which is always available from the right sidebar.
It has been too long since the Elderbloggers List (on the left sidebar) was last updated. I was surprised to find many blogs on the wait list that have not been updated for several months. Among the criteria for inclusion is that a blog publish new material at least once a week. Other requirements are listed in the FAQ which is linked at the upper left sidebar.
I’ve also eliminated the links to reviews of elderblogs we have done in the past. I still like the idea, but it’s so @#$%*^! tedious to update this list by hand that I decided to simplify the code so not to go blind each time I add blogs. For the same reason, I’ve omitted the symbol indicating a blog is new to the list - all of which makes the list less cluttered-looking and easier to use. The newly added blogs are in alphabetical order below.
Recommendations for new elderblogs are always welcome – your own, or others you’ve found that you like. Criteria are in the FAQ mentioned above.
So here are the 25 new elderblogs, bringing the total on the list to 339. Some were launched in the past few months; some have been around awhile and are new only to me. Do visit their blogs, give them a hearty welcome to the world of elderblogging.
Speaking of Saul Friedman, whose syndicated column runs in Newsday and elsewhere on Saturdays, I neglected to include his most recent column in the Sunday Election Issues post. You will find it here: Elders' Self-Interest is to Vote For Obama.
