Big News!
Bubby had her first radio interview today on 96.5 WOXL in Asheville, North Carolina. At 7:50am, folks across the airwaves heard Ken-O and Tammy of the morning show say,

"She's become a cyber-grandmother to the world. And you will meet her next..."
[Insert weather]
"So she's been helping her own family for years. And now, she is helping others. And she's been running a website with the help of her granddaughters. We are joined now by... Bubby! Good morning, Bubby!"

Bubby had a great time on the air, and even gave out some love advice to Tammy. (This is some of the best fun you can have with your grandmother.)

Dear Bubby,

I really need your help. I have been married to "Ken" for the past 16 years. We have a beautiful teenage daughter "Kelly". We have a combined yearly income of a quarter of a million dollars. We have a beautiful house, staff, and our daughter goes to a prestigious private school. We were just wondering what the hell we should do with all our money?

Yours truly,
wondering in Washington

Dear wondering in Washington,

How fortunate you and your husband are. With money to spare there are endless things you can do. First, I would suggest that you donate some money to some schools. Your child is enjoying a wonderful education and there are some who go to very bad schools and go hungry - you can help. You can contribute to reach centers such as Cancer, Heart. There are a vast number of terrible diseases that children succumb to. Have you set aside for your daughter's college and your future? Time goes by very fast. Did you think of setting up a foundation for any good causes?

I always felt that it warms the heart to know that you are helping humanity. It gives you a reason for living. What do you do for your house of worship? I could go on and on. Thank the Lord that you are comfortable.

Much happiness to you and your family.

Bubby is our 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93 94 year old grandmother.
A few years ago we introduced her to the internet and we've been getting daily e-mails from her ever since. When she was 87, we began this website. We now believe she is the oldest blogger on the Internet.

Whether Bubby is reminding us that boyfriends do not substitute for warm jackets in the winter, or that it's better to receive a compliment than a brick, she always has something to say to her granddaughters.

Now with this new website, Bubby can finally share her wisdom with the rest of the world. And she's excited about it! (Which confuses us, because she used to say we were all she needed.)

Hopefully this will be as much fun for new readers as it will surely be for her. And if not, well, as Bubby says, it will all come out in the wash.

So, are you looking for advice on food, work, a broken heart, or the perfect bat mitzvah present?

But no dirty words allowed or you'll only get one matzah ball.
