I believe strongly that learnng is a life long experience. 
My areas of interest are many and varied; family and community would rank the highest then followed by local and applied history, technology, careing and gardening.  I have gained many tertiary qualifications and been humbled by a swag of community awards. 
I have published many books (the latest one just this month) and have spoken at conferences/events in Australia and overseas. 
InfoBarrel is a new experience for me and I am bound to creep along as I work out what I could and should be doing.
