Now some of you folks are "old friends" in more than one way. But in respect of the age thing: Give me your numbers please. What is the age of the Adsenser? Who thinks he or she is the youngest or perhaps the oldest Adsenser?
And Ann, I know that these numbers don't matter so much for the lucky ones who feel 20 years young regardless of their age...

I retired from my web design business last January and am now concentrating on my own adsense sites. It's great not having to deal with clients. And I'm just about making the same income with my own sites as I did with my web design business.
Stating that he was completely and utterly stressed-out with his job I responded by saying that I got rid of my stress 10 years ago when, after an horrendously stressful week's travelling and business in mainland Europe, I boldly took the decision to convert all our businesses to on-line ventures.
I can tell you this, sometimes I thought it would never succeed and especially when some of our largest clients (multi million Dollar businesses) tried to resist all attempts to modernise their work practices.
However some saw the Net as the viable future and embraced it fully and now we have those laggards still busily playing catch-up after they saw just how much more efficient their competitors had become.
Would I have been able to persuade those companies the way forward was via the Net if I were not fully conversant and already significantly present? I doubt it, my trade widget experience plus my Internet skills convinced them of "my ideas for the future" were viable.
Never has working life been so unstressful and laid-back, talking of which, it must be time for a beer:-)
But I'm glad for Adsense. 90% of the earnings go into savings and investment... I wonder if I can buy a small plot of land on Googletopia to plant veggie and mebbe raise some chickens?
I could sell them to you's guys in exchange for clicks... (ahem...)
