Time to rename my blog?


In one week, I will turn 68 years old. When I started this blog, I had just turned 60.  I called it “Two Thirds Done” because I felt that I had an excellent chance of living into my 90s.  Many of my direct ancestors have lived into their 90s. I still think that. My dad is about to turn 90 years old and is still very healthy.

For 68 to be 2/3 of my life expectancy, I will have to live to be 102.  Not sure that is in the cards as they say.  So is it time to rename my blog.  How about “Almost Done”, “Not Yet Done”, “Three Fourths Done”.

By the way, according to the USA government Actuarial Tables I only have 15 years left.  That is something to think about. That is about 5,500 days.

  1. Hi Avram – I read your post and was thinking about this whilst randomly surfing at the same time – then came across this and thought it was too topical and too much of a coincidence (?) not to pass on…

    “Try to imagine life without timekeeping”

    You probably can’t. You know the month, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.

    Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check his watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.

    Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fearthat no other creature endures. A fear of time running out…

  2. avram you know how tough rebranding is. I would still with it. Plus Ray Kurzweil says if you can live another 15 years you’ll live forever!
