I have enjoyed writing letters to The Age newspaper over several years now with a moderate amount of success.

I am nearly 80 and have both experience and hindsight and like putting some of my thoughts and opinions down in writing. I will use this forum to do just that. I hope anyone stumbling across this blog will find some enjoyment in my literary ramblings.

Feel free to comment or add your own thoughts but please be sensible and thoughtful.  Rude comments will not be accepted.  I realise that many people won’t agree with my thoughts and I accept that.  The best ideas come from good debate over opposing views.
