How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I moved to Parkes in 1989.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I’m retired so I just swan around.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I have several favourites. I read, of course! Watch old western and musical movies, research war and Jewish history and do cryptic crosswords.
What makes you proud? Hearing from ex-students about the way they are nurturing their children, especially in brain development, from birth.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? A bear, so I could hibernate in winter.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? Movies: Sound of Music and Friendly Persuasion. Song: How Great Thou Art (especially when Barb Newton sings it!) Books: The Source, Winnie-The-Pooh, The Bible, All Quiet On The Western Front. These are my choices because they all reflect my passions.
Tell us about your best holiday. On a group tour, lead by my brother, to Turkey in 1999 when we started an impromptu street dance with some uni students at Canakkale, attended the Dawn Service at Gallipoli when it was held at the original spot, on the beachfront and then, the service at Lone Pine Cemetery.
What is on your bucket list? River cruise from Budapest to Bucharest.
