Hello my name is June(but I'm better known as Gem the smiley - monstersmiley - mouse) WELCOME TO MY SPACE smiley - biggrin

I regularly (when I have time that is) hold a conversation in the Lime Tree Cafe (this is the thread to get you there F2120777?thread=662525), read the first one then go straight to the end and join in (there are currently over 50001 posts so to read them all would take you the best part of a week!!). The coversation forumn if FROG smiley - boing.

I am a Civil Servant working for Revenue and Customs smiley - erm(that's Customs and Excise + Inland Revenue before the merger). I live and work in Bristol, England (UK not USA) and I am married to Peter who is a Hackney Carriage Owner (Taxi Driver to eveyone else).

I only recently joined this site, but I hope that it will be a lasting relationship. I like reading, a lot, and try new authors when I can (there's a current book that I want to get called 'Laberynth' by Kate Mosse!! It's on sale at my local Costco store2).

In my listing of authors I've read:- Douglas Adams (of course!), Stephen King, James Herbert, Mark Morris, Clive Barker - you can't tell I like horror novels can you smiley - yikes, JK Rowling, JRR Tolkein - My book collection is only outweighed by my frog collection, actually I think my glass collection holds the number one slot at present. I'm currently reading the Lensmand Series by E.E. 'Doc' Smith

I collect promotional glasses - Guiness, Budweiser, Grolsh, Famous Grouse(whiskey) etc. I collect them in pint size, half pint size and other variations, but I'm not obsessed about drink - honest!! smiley - drunk(although I have, like most people I suspect, had the odd tipple too many now and again)
