In my garden ,I grow herbs to make mainly south asian and Italian food..eg lemongrass,kafir lime ,basil,oregano,coriander,vietnamese mint. My favourite tucker is beef rendang. I drink mainly Barrossa Shiraz and Marlborough Savvy.Music is a vital part of my life.Favourites...say..Louis Armstrong,Neil Young,Jeff beck. I have been singing in bands all my life and have an extensive music library. My idea of a party, is getting together with fellow musicians and jamming(while having a few bevvys). I usually have a dog but my old girl(bluey) passed away a cuppla years ago . In the next few months (from Aug 2011) I will be getting a new pup...a Belgian barge dog and I can't wait.I have three wonderful and successful children,I used to have my own buisness but am now in slow mode ,working occasionally. I own my own home and am watching my new garden grow . It's difficult making social connections with the opposite sex at this stage of life and in the wonderful but quiet community I live in. So,I think that these dating sites are a great new idea!! I am a physically strong man with a very soft heart. I love to kiss and whilst strongly appreciating an intellectual friendship , I need a partner who needs a man!
