gerryburne's bioI have been lucky with my health. I believe myself to be a kind, constructive and a gentle person.
I work 3 days a week in electronics design and other times as a parish councillor. I don't see much of my children and grandchildren and I have few friends so I have little social life. My interest in joining Silversurfers is to explore the possibility of being less lonely.

Wills/Insurance policiesLike you, my wife and I have a simple will, everything goes to the partner so long as she/he survives the other by 30 days. Otherwise everything goes to our children (5 between us) in equal shares. Named executors are each other but if both are gone it is our two sons. Simple. Unlike you, we do not 'do' life insurance. We only do car and home, and are too old for travel insurance, so we are of no interest to insurance companies. So, my suggestion to you is cancel you life insurance policies - they are no good to you when you are dead - save the premiums and live long and prosper.ViewDate:

Do you know of any cars that are suitable for lower back pain sufferers?My wife has suffered lower back pain as long as I have known her. She recently changed to a Ford B-max automatic and this has made a big difference.gerryburne commented on:
Blue or Burgundy passports?Lucky me, I am a British Subject but also an Irish Citizen. So, a few years back I started to have difficulties with my British EU Passport. Firstly, I was almost refused boarding on a flight to the USA and then I was refused boarding altogether on a flight to Bulgaria to take grandchildren on a skiing holiday. The solution - I applied for an Irish Passport which is a burgundy EU Passport and is provided at no charge for the over 60's. And now with Brexit coming on things will only get better! I can live in England but continue to travel as an EU Citizen. So there.gerryburne commented on:
Should the UK have a complete ban on selling Ivory products?Any little that we can do to reduce the killing of elephants, rhinos and Tigers is worth doing. So there.gerryburne commented on:
Should Nigel Farage be ennobled in the House of Lords?The House of Lords is an anachronism. It is a hangover from times past that no longer provides value for money. Its members are not democratically elected and I would be surprised if Nigel Farage would accept the job if it was offered.gerryburne commented on:
Are you having enough fun?I am stuck living with a person who says that she hates me and who from time to time demonstrates that with verbal abuse. There isn't enough money for us to live separately and week after week my lotto numbers fail to come up. It looks to me that I can only hope for the best and keep my constructive attitude to life as I plod along on the long uphill struggle to the grave.
