Welcome from a few thousand kilometres west of you smile
Similar age group, but not yet retired. Hope you have as much fun here as I do.

Welcome waggaqt from a retiree in the United States. I thought when I retired I'd have more time for reading, but this very insidious trivia site seems to have taken over my life.

Hi Waggqrt Welcome to Fun Trivia. I am from Western Australia so just a few squllion kilometres away. Really hope you enjoy yourself.
And a really big thank you to all who welcomed me as well (dunno if I will find my way back onto the stage again - think it was a fluke I got here in the first place) anyway ENJOY!!!!!

Greetings from Canada. I am certain I speak for my fellow Canucks when I say I hope you enjoy it here. There's not as many of us as I thought there'd be but we're a good bunch.
Since you're "Down Under", I guess that would make Canada "Up 'n Over"?

Welcome to FT.
