Hello everyone. I'm a retired high school teacher and very involved in our local U3A and also on the Board of the state Council for the Ageing and a member of Zonta, an international women's service club. Like to keep busy!

I was born in Yorkshire but have lived in Tasmania most of my life. My OH is a Geordie from South Shields and we travel OS as often as we can. We are both avid readers and movie and concert goers. I have three adult sons, seven grandchildren and almost five great grandchildren (one almost here) - I was an early starter!!

Hi, Jaywalker.
Are you related to Skywalker, by any chance?

The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Hi Jaywalker, Join the gang, welcome from the Sunshine State, and the Gold Coast.
If I had a chance I would love to live in Tassie, but hubbies health doesn't allow us to.

G'day jaywalker, glad to have you on board the good ship "Silverpeers". I see that you have met some of our motley crew already.
Don't take them too serious but please enjoy our company.
We debate anything, even recipes and there is a great games section including our famous "Limericks", which have been going for nearly nine years uninterrupted.

Welcome and enjoy.
