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

Here are Jiahong Yao and Shelsing Mo, graduates from UVIC. Shelsing 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 <>

HAPPY NEW YEAR and best wishes for 2004.
