    Hello Everyone,

    Not sure if anyone remembers me, I used to post a bit on the old forum.

    Anyways I’m back now after an absence of some years.

    I live in Newcastle. Retired but busy with family and my hobbies.

    Building a house in Hamilton. Hope to have it finished next month. I e bought and sold, invested in different assets etc but am far from an expert in anything. Perhaps all I have to offer anyone is local knowledge in Newcastle. Things are changing up here so amazingly fast.

    I enjoy Scuba diving which I teach. Pretty keen sailor too, but from from expert. I get involved in races pretty regular. Have owned my own boat but currently helping other folks with theirs and doing some teaching.

    I used to network with a crowd on here in Newcastle. We’d travel to other cities to meet our online friends. I enjoyed that side of things. Still in touch with many of them on Facebook which is cool.

    Look forward to getting a bit more involved and doing some reading.

    Simon I can't remember you but welcome back just the same. I keep thinking of the other Simon for some reason.

    Sometimes I go through Newcastle on the way to that place just north...Anna Bay and surrounds. That new port is out of this world.

    Who is Nancy? You mean Rosie the Wonder Dog?

    She’s getting on a bit. 13 now and slow but still happy enough. Best dog in the world.

    Hi Simon, Lizzy says hello to her mum! What a wonderful day when we came to choose our Lizzy, surrounded by 10 puppies and Rosie keeping watch. Thank you to you both for letting Lizzy come live we us.
