Hello / Ahoy from Chicago

Hello everyone, I'm Diesel. I sailed as a kid and am looking to get to it again full time upon retirement in a few years. I'm an electrical contractor and engineer (with a small e) who occasionally waxes philosophical - but please excuse me when I do. I'm here to meet other like minds and learn, possibly also share when I can be of help......

Re: Hello / Ahoy from Chicago

Actually, Dies' Oceania is a big place. Sydney Orrstraylia. You probably think of here as "Downunder" .
So Dies', do you remember a little kid, Mikey Douglas. Streets of San Francisco?
How 'bout "The Roy Acuff Band" ?
Freddie Mercury?
Annette Funicello?
Karl Malden?
Efrem Zimbalist jnr?
Huh?
Lara.

Oceania (imho): A beautiful continent and surrounding islands that I have read about in books but have never seen in the flesh.... A deficiency that I someday hope to remedy.

The world is a huge place and If I live long enough I'd like to see many parts of it, And the Great Down-under is definitely on that list....

------------------------------------------------------------

The States are a big place too, but I've been here a bit too long for the magic to have remained.
