You anywhere near Rockhampton, Maryborough Biloela?
I was born in Maryborough, Ciderman - but left when I was 10yo.
It is about 3 hours drive north of me now - 'just down the road' in Aussie terms.

Nice to hear from you at last. I see you come from Oz. 
My sister has lived there for about forty years, you have probably met her the populations is not very big is it ?    
Only about 24 million, (mate).  Spread over an area more than 30 times the size of the UK !  :hug:
So it's fairly unlikely that we crossed paths.
Nevertheless, strange things happen - any idea in what part of Aus she was lucky enough to reside ?

Pumicestone...  Good to meet you at last! 

We share this welcome thread.  Very Happy

I'll look forward to seeing you around once you've settled in. 


No doubt, Irene.
Just how fortunate can this lot be - getting the two of us at pretty-much the same time ?!

I wonder if there is any 'Edit' facility here. I often wish I could immediately change stuff.

Nahhhh - not a chance, "Andsome". About 2000 kilometres away 
and I've only been to Melbourne three or four times - on business. 
The 'gorilla's armpit' of Australia, mate.

No idea how to post a pic (avatar ?).
Many well-meaning folk have tried to explain such things - without any joy.
The above is a bit of a pity because if I were able to accomplish that,
 I think you would find  a quite remarkable facial resemblance between myself and Malcolm !

Hello again!  Here are a couple of screen clips which might help:

First access you Profile...




Then your avatar link...




Then your options - to lift an image from your PC, it is highlighted in red - Don't forget to touch the save button at the bottom (also highlighted).  There various other alternatives available, but that is how I did mine.  smile
