Not rushing at the moment believe it or not!

Time to tell you a little more about myself. I warn you I talk a lot too, so maybe you'd better all grab a cup of coffee before you settle down to read this because it could turn into the first chapter of a novel. Only Mo talks more than I do and that's cos she has more time than I do, and doesn't rush as much!

I first got involved on the internet towards the end of last year when my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer and I was trying to find out more about it on the web. I also needed an escape at that stage, to take my mind off reality once in a while, and so I joined a discussion board where I met Mo. Eventually we both got bored with that one and she decided to start Pixiedust which was the first prototype of Anything Goes, and asked me to help her with it. I knew nothing about computers and so it was a little scary but because I enjoy a challenge and I'll do anything for my friends, I agreed. I'm still a bit of a duh when it comes to all the tech side of computers but I'm getting better, and have learned a tremendous amount since being on runboard. I love the boards and all the cyberfriends I've made over the last few months - this has literally been a lifesaver for me through all the desperate times, although up till now I haven't said anything about all the worries and stress.

Apart from Peter (Earmaus) I think I'm probably the oldest member of our boards but I don't feel, look, or act old at all. (Well I hope not!!) Our 41st wedding anniversary is just around the corner - I'm very lucky to be married to the most special caring man, and we have two sons. One is a confirmed bachelor and lives in London, and the other is married to a lovely lady and they gave us our first and only precious grand-daughter, who will be two at the end of September and is the light of my life!

It's hard to analyse oneself but I love people, animals, (am owned by two Yorkies and Erika knows what that feels like!) and I'm interested in anything and everything. I love to share views on different things and always respect the way others feel even if I don't necessarily agree with them. Travel is top of my list of things to do when I can ... both here in South Africa where the best is the bush and the wildlife, and abroad. I'm fortunate in that I have been to many different countries and have learned that people all round the world are much the same and care for and worry about the same things. Other interests include birding, reading, languages, the criminal mind, crafts of all kinds, sport (especially cricket and tennis), corresponding with friends all over the world, being with family and friends, music, art, and ... I could go on but I won't bore you any longer!

Finished your coffee yet?

Re: Hello from Petal


Thanks Serts - we're very positive! He has another check-up in October ... I mentioned it not just to explain how I got here, but more to encourage the guys out there to ensure that they have regular check-ups and psa tests. This can be a killer if not caught early, and believe me it's very scary ... he had no symptoms at all so it was a thunderbolt. A simple blood test can save your life guys, so please please take it seriously.

You're right about the net Serts, but more a breath of fresh air than anything else! It has opened up a whole new world to me and runboard has been my lifesaver - and my friends here are all more special to me than you will ever know.
