Sunday, August 26, 2012 – 3 days before my 65th birthday – Giving birth to the dream 

I had said goodbye to Benji and sent him home to Judy. It was after mid-night but I could hear that there were people talking downstairs. I went down and said that line to dear Angela. She is always on her cell so I knew I would not have to spend a lot of time explaining what the heck I was talking about. Angela became a hero at the moment she clicked the “subscribe” button. I was so excited. I had a subscriber!
I went back upstairs happy in the knowledge that I had taken a risk in my life. I was not worried about that the fact that Angela might be the only subscriber on this channel. There was such a great feeling of accomplishment. I was smiling, lots! Rubbing my hands with glee, like a kid. Omg – look what we have done!
Ding. “What was that?” Email. Having nothing else to do, and still very wired from the excitement, I click on my in box and found… another subscriber! Can you imagine it?! The unbelievable joy of it. I can’t tell you who it was because I nuked the email and for that I am now profoundly sorry. 
2:00 am = 98 subscribers + 24 views
“Wow, look at that”. Sleep was not going well. Every time I was just about to doze into zzzz-land… ding! I didn’t want to miss a moment of it. For just an instant, I thought I knew what Mark Zuckerberg must have felt like when he started Facebook. My little version of it. I had seen the movie and remembered the scene when they watched the 1 million mark get hit. Hey, Mark, I am nearly at 100. 
I had to get some sleep because I was going to a BBQ for the RYLA people and I had to give a quick speech. There was a lot of dinging during the night. By the time I left for the BBQ I was looking at 415 subscribers. No doubt that Benji and Judy were up to something! They must have posted the link. 
I can’t remember who was the first person to send a question and for that I am also sorry because they created their own piece of history. Wait, maybe I can find that out on the channel – brb. Sure I can do it but I may need to do it later. I have nuked a lot of things because it they were filling up my inbox. Will let you know when I find out, if I do.
By the time I got back from the BBQ the channel had taken on a life of its own. By the end of Sunday we were up to 503 subscribers and nearly 1,000 visits. I learned about the Analysis feature on the channel and found out there were not, as I had believed, from Canada and the United States. People from around the world were visiting and hitting the subscribe button. Questions were arriving about everything from how to make friends at school to what to do about cheating husbands.
Before I went to sleep, I told Angela that she had started a trend and that I would be forever grateful.
