Grad Sudent Luan Yato & host Roy Parrett, Victoria
Luan has now graduated and returned to China

Shelsing Mo with host Roy Parrett & Jianhong Yao
Christmas in my living room in Victoria, B.C.

Here are Jianhong, a grad student from UVIC, your editor, Roy Parrett, and Shelsing, who is attending UVIC, and who is also in the Reserve Army, which she enjoys very much. We are wishing each other Merry Christmas in my Victoria living room. I meet many International students, living close to UVIC, and my hobby of recycling bicycles, which I donate free to students. And for nine years I sponsored the amateur radio activity at Lester Pearson College, and so met students from many countries, some of them I met, on graduation, in their own country.


I am a widower in Victoria, British Columbia, at 84, but in good health, although my hearing is down, having been in the artillery during World War II. Most of my life I have been a pilot, with my own plane, and an active radio amateur at home, and at overseas locations in Europe, Asia and the South Pacific, with calls VE7TG, G4JSO, YJ0AR and 3D2AR. I belong to several organizations including The New Horizon Radio Club, here in Victoria.

On this home page, the "doorway" to my site, I'll introduce myself and talk about my reasons for wanting a web site. I might put a picture of myself on this page...or just a picture that I especially like.

Please sign my guestbook with any comments or reactions you have to my site. You can also contact me privately. I love to get mail at <>

This is my front yard in Victoria, British Columbia in its fall colors.


And nearby Blenkinsop Lake- now bridged by a hiking and bike trail.

I hope to update this page often with new photos.

What's New?- We had a nice visit from cousin Linda and Richard Hydes in Early September 2002. They were touring British Columbia in a ritzy rental car, with a dash board like a 747 instrument panel! Appropriate as Linda works for a pilot testing company back in Salisbury. With daughter Maureen we dined out a nice seaside restaurant, with spectacular views of some of our smaller islands.

I hear from cousin John Purchase in Wimborne that they had Linda and Richard's children, while L & R were touring in British Columbia in September 2002, and that they had braved the channel tunnel to Paris earlier. And brother Angus, and Janet Purchase are in Phoenix, Arizona to visit theit university son.
