8 things meme - Part 2

8 things about me

1 - I was born and raised in New Zealand - which makes me a Kiwi.

2 - I am currently living in Canada - which does not make me a Canuck.

3 - I lived for over 3 years (as a teenager) in the Solomon Islands - and hated every minute of it.

4 - I love genealogy. Both my parents were born in New Zealand (as were all the grandparents) and are both part Scottish and part West-Country English. West country is CELTIC country!! Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.

5 - I also love the French culture - which is why I am in Canada. My spouse is French Canadian - although he doesn't speak any French. I wish I learnt to speak French too, but I was always changing schools at the wrong times.

6 - My hair has been grey since I stopped dying it when I was pregnant - that was 6 years ago.

7 - I love watching Star Trek - especially The Next Generation. My favourite Aliens are the Vulcans and several years ago, I made a website all about Vulcans. Yep its still there. Shirkahr of Vulcan. Warning - the email address has been deactivated.

8 - As Helene Hanff once wrote - I have an Antiquarian taste in Books. I also love Bibliographic mysteries, and the one I am currently investigating is the matter of who REALLY wrote Shakespeare's Plays. So please check out my Blogs.
Biblio Historia and Biblio Shakespeare
