My name is Graham. I am now retired and have been married to Pauline for 49 wonderful years with never a cross word. (If you believe that you'll believe anything :) We hope to make new friends with our hubs, have a few laughs and help a few people along the way. We intend to write on various topics and themes, and hope that you find our efforts interesting. We are both young at heart and treat every day as a new opportunity.

We were in the Ladies Hairdressing business for many years. I was also in the Civil Engineering and Construction business, working In Quality Assurance and Health & Safety. My work took me to Europe many times as well as visits to Southern Ireland. I have also had an interest in the Finance Industry for most of my adult life. We have retained contact with many friends from our past exploits and I am pleased to say that most of them are younger than we are.

We usually holiday in Spain or Majorca. Sometimes just the two of us, sometimes with our grown up family.

Although we are retired one thing is certain. We want to know what's going on out there! So PLEASE leave a comment, that's why we are here after all. Thank you for your visit and Good Luck and Happy Hubbing to everyone.
