G'day all,

I registered a couple of weeks ago but then promptly left on holiday (to Phuket if you must know) so it took this long to say hello - sorry!

I'm Australian of mixed immigrant heritage, I've lived in several countries and I am fluent in several languages.

I'm an army reservist, a forward observer in the Royal Australian Artillery.

I'm an occasionally grumpy but generally friendly 46 year old with a beautiful dance teacher wife and an amazing 16 year old daughter.

I decided last year never to work full time again which leaves plenty of time to form strong opinions about pretty much everything. I plan on sharing some of them here and will try not to start WWIII

Congratulations to all who wanted Trump impeached, commiserations to those who did not!

Welcome, Integritas! Always glad to have intelligent discussion. Lots of friendly folks here, though we don't always agree on everything. I'm a retired Software Engineer turned avocado grower myself. Married to a Veterinarian, also retired.

Howdy, Inty! From Australia, I see. Do ya know Bob?

I looked up your vacation destination on a travel site. Their tag line was, “Phuket, come anyway!”

Oh, my...
You can’t solve a problem without first understanding what the problem is.
