Regina Brett is Not Really 90 Years Old

Yeah, I know. I don't usually post to my blog on Saturday. But I thought you might like this. There's a great blog post (May 28, 2009) making the rounds via e-mail. It's called 45 Life Lessons and 5 to Grow On. Somewhere along the line, someone made a mistake and listed the author's age as 90. That attracted a lot of attention.

I don't know what made me decide to verify that Regina Brett was a real person, a columnist at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio, but I did a Google search and found her right away. She's very real, very interesting, but definitely not 90 years old. A follow-up post on June 6, 2009 is entitled: Life's lessons speed up on Internet; 90 years of living in 50: Regina Brett. Check out Regina's bio as well.

Your time will not be wasted if you follow these links. After that, think about this one tiny blog post written from the heart that is now traveling around and around the world making people nod and smile.

Interesting, Patricia! Great life lessons (from a 53 year old OR a 90 year old!) :)
