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, but about to transfer to the RCAF. 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 89 in November 2006, 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.

Here I am with daughters Maureen and Barbara. "Moe" lives in Victoria, nearby, and Barb in Calgary, with son Dan.

This home page is the "doorway" to my site, I'll introduce you to Victoria, British Columbia, and some friends, and talk about my reasons for wanting a web site. I put a picture of myself on this page... 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 in November 2006.


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

Best wishes for the New Year 2007, everybody!


Our English cousins gathered at John and Shirley Purchase's Catley Chase home, Wimborne, to bring in the New Year 2007. :


Best wishes for the Christmas Season, 2006, friends. And for the New Year too! Here in Victoria, this month, December, we had a series of big wind and rain storms- all in a row. Having been in the artillery, I slept through them. Global Warming, somebody said?
