Happy 4th of July

Hi Folks, A reader from Malaysia sent me the following: A young woman brings home her fiancee to meet her parents for the first time. After dinner, her mother asks her father to find out about this young man. The father invites him to his study for a drink. "So what are your plans?" the father asked the young man. "I am a Torah scholar" he replied. "Admirable" the father said. "But how will you provide for my daughter in the manner to which she is accustomed?" "I will study, and God will provide for us" the young man replied. "And what about children? How will you provide for them?" "Don't worry, sir, God will provide for us." Later the mother asked the father "How did it go honey?" The father answered "He has no job and no money and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God." Have a great weekend. Cheers, Richard Roe AKA The Senior Bachelor

Weekly Post- June 28, 2005 **New Blogging Method**

Hi Everyone,

Just sent the Senior Bachelor Newsletter. Hope you are all well. I mentioned in the newsletter that for sake of time management, I need to manage the blogging process. Hopefully, it will make it easier for all of us. This is my first blog and my first website. Before launching the Senior Bachelor Search and Journey I only used my computer for e-mail. I'm learning a lot as it grows and grows. It's good to hear many of you are learning along with me. Adventures come in all shapes and sizes!

I am going to post only one blog or post per week (unless something arises which calls for another blog). Let's use that post to write all comments for the week. I'll archive the old blog and start a new one every week from here on. This way all of us will have to look in only one blog for any new comments. I'm hoping this will free more time for me to add more comments as we go along. If this doesn't work, we'll try something else. Thanks for bearing with me on this.

Summer is slowly showing its warm and sanguine bloom in Manhattan Beach. I found a place online that shows the beach in Manhattan Beach on a live webcam. Try this link . This is a great jumping off place for my world travels because it always so nice to come home to. Also, it is so close to my sons and their wonderful families. Have a great week!

Hello From the Senior Bachelor

Hi, It's a gorgeous Sunday afternoon here in southern California and I just spent the morning with my three children and seven grandchildren, and that makes for a great day! I like the comments on the blog page-for the most part. From time to time I feel there are inappropriate comments, however the vast majority of these comments are quite interesting and encouraging. I say the word encouraging, because quite frankly, Senior Bachelor has grown into a very, very large endeavor, and from time to time, I do need some encouragement!! Oprah is seen in over 111 countries and now with the People article, well, things are busy!! A commenter on the blog page wrote that I will respond to personal e-mails. This is inaccurate and in fact diverts my attention from things I need to be working on. Some people send repeated e-mails, and unfortunately I have to delete them without reading them. If you send these comments via the blog, I will read them and try to respond when appropriate. I am working on this week's Newsletter and will address two topics that repeatedly arise; 1) The panel of women who will assist me in my choices 2) Meeting at a resort. Also, the blog page is becoming too cluttered with too many of my blogs, so soon, in a Newsletter and on the blog page, I will list a new method for all of us to follow, which will streamline things. So keep those comments coming. Bye for now, Richard Roe
