Hiya Sacha,

OK that's your name. So tell us more about yourself. You may keep your age a secret if you wish but give us a rough idea of your location, mention what you do and a little bit about your interests. 

This thread, started by Heather, is a good idea. There may be the occasional quiet time on the site. This thread helps to look at people's interests and may well help to start a new subject of conversation.

Hiya Heather, you are an office manager in an Architects. That sounds as though it might be a busy practice. Some architects are interested in the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society. Are you interested in the protection of old buildings.

Hiya Gary, blue collar worker with an interest in cars and motor cycles... are you a mechanic?

Hiya Karen, you must have done something before you became a mum of five kids.

Is there anyone else who would like to tell us a bit about themselves ???

Best Wishes, Christopher

Hiya Mageeka,

I am sorry to hear your wife has lymphoma. Would you care to post her Christian name? Lighting a candle for "Mageeka's wife" seems so impersonal. I am sure I will not be the only person who will either light a candle or
say a prayer for her  http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/enter.cfm?l=eng

Best wishes to you and your family,

Christopher

Right then, guess I am last not but least!
I am Valerie Poole (Nee Taggart)  I left Belfast about 30 years ago. Lived up just off the Cavehill Rd, and North Circular Road area of North Belfast.
Went to the Girls Model School for a few years or until my parents decided I need the rough edges taken off me and they packed me off to a boarding school in Bray. Co. Wicklow called the French School.
Left there and went to Miss. Gordon's secretarial School after which I ended up working in the Classified Advertising Department of the Belfast Telegraph until I married in 72.
Married a guy from Devon. England. Had 2 brilliant daughters Claire and Emma . Immigrated to Calgary. Alberta. Canada.  One daughter is now a Journalist - took after her Dad- and the other has her own P.R. and Media relations company.
Me., well I opened my own Seniors Newspaper. Don't laugh, it made a lot of money! Built it up from nothing and sold it.
I am now retired, along with my husband Bob, and hopefully are about to travel the world and smell the roses.
There you have it.
