About Me


Shirley Sharan, developer, author this site

This site was developed by Shirley Sharan, who has been working with Web sites since the mid 90’s. Having pursued most of the I-net improvement classes offered on the web, Shirley has completed many html, CSS, and Java Scripts courses offered on-line and continued to learn from them, so at one time she had approximately 20  various sites for textual pages and varied digital imagining courses, many “homework” requirements

Shirley was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 1932 together with her twin sister, Maurita. She graduated from Carlisle High School in 1950 and moved to NYC where she entered Mt. Sinai Hospital School of Nursing and graduated  in September, 1953, and began as an operating room nurse at Mt Sinai Hospital. In 1955, Shirley began working as an operating room nurse at the Hospital for Special  Surgery, also in New York City.

In 1956 she married Sherwin Sharan and they lived in Queens county until they purchased a house in White Plains, NY, living there until they moved to Jacksonville, Florida in 1977.

Shirley entered NYU as an undergraduate in NYU’s nursing program. She received her BS degree in 1967, then entered the Health Education Program at NYU. She received her MA degree in 1972.

Shirley just celebrated her 85th birthday and has begun once again to develop an understanding of the changes since she laid off web surfing and developing in the year 2000.

Never being blessed with children, she accepted the invitation of her twin sister’s daughter, Michele, to relocate to Fort Wayne, Indiana. That is where she now resides.

Welcome to this  humble site:  Finally, in the 85th year of my life, I am starting anew to work within the great big Internet. You know, that site that is so “hard” and scary that people my age could never be able to work in, live around, or successfully complete the tasks needed.

Nonsense. in my next page I will re-load the story of my spiritual life which was last edited in 1995.

In addition, I not only coded the html, using CSS, but this was completed after multiple courses I pursued right here on the I-net from established learning centers or via web sites. I began learning and writing pages for the internet, firstly because I felt my dog needed a page of her own. Well, she got it — that first page and 10 others. Secondly, I was not yet 85, so I had plenty of time to stretch my brain with new learning and, so, here I am.

I have no idea how I could be so old, since no one in my family ever lived this long. Some might conjecture that I was too stubborn to give up; Perhaps that is true, but I prefer believing that because I kept learning new things kept my brain active; but, also, this learning energized my body by the flooding of brain waves. Whatever, I am here and I am still able to communicate.

I plan to keep these pages moving, being filled with family love, family pictures and the ramblings of an old woman. And I have no doubt that my precious

niece, Michele, will destroy these pages, cancelling my hosting services, but so be it. Perhaps, she will read these pages before she destroys them.

(Words in blue —  Below: For my Niece)

This is a suggestion to you, Michele, read these pages before you have them destroyed. Not because they are great, but because you may begin to understand me and what has kept me so busy these past few years. I had hoped that you could see all my pages, the school work, the photography, and the various learning “homework”.

But, unfortunately, all my work was sent to the shredder when I had failed to find the e-mail informing me that my domain was now up for renewal. Well, I saved some money, but I feel really sad that I can no longer read some of those pages and that I will never be able to share it with you. Not to worry, I have had fun and, in addition, your suggestion that I relocate to Fort Wayne, Indiana, was a wonderful suggestion, and I have never regretted it..

And, so here I am; we are with a quarter of the right column missing copy to make the columns of type even. Well, I am not a print copy adjuster, so we will leave it just so.

So, why not look at a picture. (Guess what it might be) 🙂
