What can i say.
Arrived in Australia in 1972 from the UK.
Am proudly now an Australian Citizen.
Married with 2 Children although they have grown up left home and produced 4 grand children between them
Worked most of my life in Electronics one way or another from servicing TV's and videos to computers and answering systems for PYE industries, Tandy Electronics and in recent years running my own computer business.
Gave that up 2 years ago though got very disillusioned with Windows.
Changed to Macs at home and started to question why any one uses Widows at all.
I now work as a Bus driver on a 7 day week roster and enjoy the job but could do with better bosses.
My Passions are Rugby League and Music.
Also like gardening and generally seeing this great land called Australia.
My passion for music stems from being a musician and playing in bands for many years in Sydney.
Live in Townsville Now and love the life style here. still play a bit of music but just for me at home.
Wouldn't get rid of my Fender Strat for Quids.
As regards my weight i have been skinny all my life less than 85 kilos the had a heart attack when i was 50 gave up smoking changed eating and drinking habits and put on the weight.
Now have type 2 diabetes and figure the best way of controlling that is to get my weight down hence i am here
