Am just dropping in again, this time to formally accept some 33 peoples' requests for friendship. Life is busy, as I've said before, even when one is retired and in one's 70s as I am. I am, therefore, not able to come to this site very often.-Ron Price, Australia

I have been married twice for a total of 47 years. My second wife is a Tasmanian, aged 68.  We’ve had one child: age 37. I have two step-daughters: ages: 48 and 43, and three step-grandchildren, ages 21, 18 and 4, and 1 grandchild age 3. All of the above applies in 2014. 

I am 70, am a Canadian who moved to Australia in 1971 and have written several books--all available on the internet. I retired from full-time teaching in 1999, part-time teaching in 2003 and volunteer teaching/work in 2005 after 32 years in classrooms as a teacher and another 18 as a student. In addition, I have been a member of the Baha’i Faith for 55 years.
