Some people are sensitive about their age but Christina Abt of Eden is broadcasting to the world that she's 64-years-old.

Abt is a published author and no stranger to telling stories in print. To celebrate her 64th year, she purchased a video camera and editing equipment and is hitting the road nationwide to tell stories of interesting people.

The project is called "64 and more" and her stories will be posted on her website at Chistinaabt.com. She has upcoming interviews set up in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.

Abt admits that mastering the video medium has been a challenge, "The first week I wanted to kill somebody," she joked. She's had some good teachers and already has her first four subjects posted on her website.

Traditionally as folks approach retirement age they have plans to take it easy, but it's obvious that Christina Abt has her own idea of retirement age and it has nothing to do with "taking it easy."
