Anne Carpenter and Paul Cunningham live in Sydney, Australia. Daisy May, who was Anne's best friend for 19 years, finally succumbed to a collection of ailments in April 2015. Now we have Coco, a 14-yr-old Tonkinese rescue cat, who is loving life in her new home, as long as she gets attention when she wants it!.
Anne has lived in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney all her life. Paul originates from Northern Ireland, lived for 5 years in Harrogate, Yorkshire, and then emigrated to New Zealand. He moved to Sydney in 2007.
Most of our excitement over the past few years has been based around Anne's renewed interest in sketching, while Paul has replaced his singing with photography. These activities are combined under the heading of CREATIVE.
Partly in association with Anne's sketching, we have had quite an upsurge in overseas travel, including several trips to Europe. Our TRAVEL reports are sub-divided into Australia/New Zealand and International. There is an underlying definition of travel as involving at least one night's stay away from home. Day trips are found under Creative.
The third main section is entitled SERIOUS. It contains our numerous Letters to the Editor; a section about what the State Government is doing to destroy our suburb, starting with the Northern Beaches Hospital; and thirdly some delicious quotes under the heading of Words of Wisdom.
