Hi Ron,
On seeing the name I do recall your earlier posting and you certainly have had a mixed bag of a life in both career and locations.
As you may have noted, the forum has a heavy slant on immigration, not by choice but just the way it has developed and any efforts to make the other sections on travel, current events, life in Australia etc. are welcome.
So welcome and go for it.

Yes, Wanderer. I have been a wanderer. Thanks for the response; good to know there is someone at the other end of the line.-Ron in Australia...settling into old age now and no more wandering except in my head.
