I have and still work in war torn places involved with water and housing projects Eg; such places as NK and East Timor. I am happily marriaged with three mature sons. I have a dog who sticks her head out the window of our car because she can. I just been given an iPad to the smiles of my friend a graduate of Yale who has shares in Apple and is kicking himself that he didn't buy more as he laughs on the way to the bank or to his laptop. I am slow at typing because my fingers are too large and my eyesight is not as it once was! Hey I feel tempted to buy a 3D Large screen TV but am resisting it...and I think that there will be more upheaval in the financial world if more disasters are to strike in key places in the next few years..failing insurance companies will be the litmus paper for these events and not what the Government states. I am half Irish on my mother's side and I love to sing ballads...OK that's enough...one more thing I am Australian.
