Sorry if I offend some 60+ members but I find the new blog page unfriendly. I liked it when you could see all that weeks or even that months blogs.I believe if the message board and the blog page were the same as the old blog page it would be better but as a new guy what do I know .............

What do the regular members think?

Has anyone else been to see the film Quartet yet?  It's set in a retirement home for musicians and stars amongst others Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Pauline Colllins and Tom Courtney.  Would like to know what you though of it if you have.

It seems to be a new idea to make films aimed at older people and the one I really enjoyed was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which was both moving and funny as well as being orginal.  Quartet had the people round me laughing constantly but I was…

Where are you?

 It is great to see so many members signing on, or re-registering with the brand-new Sixtyplus surfers site. However I am still puzzled why so few people are around. Where are you all?

Food parcels in the UK ...Unbelievable !!!!

Lots of us will remember food shortages after the war,we were lucky enough to have some of our family living in the USA so every Christmas a large box of food would arrive on our door step to ensure we ate well over the Christmas period.

Move on 60 years or so and we find our supermarkets and some shops taking in food and donations to feed those who cannot afford to buy even the basics, not quite third world but getting closer to it with more and more people being drawn into the…

The Flood. Boscastle, Cornwall, England - 16th August 2004. A poem.

I have visited Boscastle, Cornwall, many times in my life. During our most recent stay last August, we stayed in a house on Valency Row, which had felt the full force and effect of the terrible flood of 2004. This inspired me to try and write something poetic, that would give a sense of the transition from  a peaceful lunch time stroll to being trapped by a raging flood. This was the result:…

Many years ago I joined a group of athletes who practiced Japanese martial arts. To begin with it was a Saturday training session. Novice practitioners were assigned to the morning, intermediates got the afternoons and the black belt practitioners had the evening slot.

One of my friends was a black belt 8th Dan. He was very proud of his grade and taught a Saturday morning class. As I progressed through the ranks of Rokkyu kyu…
