Its been some time since I have had time to take a good look at the Forums
It is quite apparent now that we all are either getting to old to keep up with things or are starting to expire, it will be a shame when none of us are left.
The effort our parents put in to make a new start half way round the world will slowly disappear and that bit of history will be lost fore ever.
I know from my perspective they were all very brave to tackle the unknown. My brother and I came from the slums of the UK and both have built and run there own quite successful businesses, which I am certain we would never had such a chance in the UK. For mine I will be eternally grateful to both mum and dad and that both of my children live in what I believe to be the best country in the world.
we arrived June 61 father passed away 1975 aged 63 mum still going 92, has just entered a nursing home
