I am new here. Thought I would drop in and see if anyone can suggest things to do on the computer for over 60's I love hidden object games and my favourites are Letters from Nowhere 1 and 2 but I have played them to death ! Difficult to find ones as good I have tried doing my family tree but didn't get very far ( not that interested to be honest) and found it very time consuming to get not very far I am female, married, I knit, read and do crosswords but would like to broaden my horizon. All suggestions welcome

I cannot get out as much as I used to, due to various health reasons, so I have combined my love of the computer together with my love of history and genealogy and transcribe information for various websites. Admittedly this is in the UK, so I am not sure about other countries.

How do I spend my spare time

As hobbies and interest go I would be seasonal in what I attempt. Autumn makes me think ( filling my freezer ). At the moment I am using different fruits that I have foraged this autumn. Today I have made freezer cheese. Using blackcurrants, apple and blackberry and plums. This is setting now in little ramekins. I will freeze them later tonight. The ramekin size is so handy. I find one pound jars much to large. I look forward to using what I have made. Letting the fruit cheese sit and mature will make it more tasty. Not for long though!!!

Hi everyone, I just want to share with you a little of what it's like being part of a Gospel choir. I belong to the Worksop Community Gospel choir, we are now increasing in numbers .The aim of this choir is to bring people together who enjoy singing, it's becoming very popular now in different areas, you don't have to be a great singer to be in one , just enjoy being with lovely people who also like to sing. We have had a good year travelling around doing concerts, this coming Friday we are singing at a charity show called Worksop has got talent, procceeds are for a young man who suffers with oncoming blindness, all the money raised will go to the blind . I will be reporting again to tell you how we got on !!

My band, Bexhill punk-mod-ska-indie-garage rockers 'The Spiffing Good Eggs' I'd like to start a forum to suggest that once you are over 50 there are many exciting alternatives to taking the easy life i.e.putting on the slippers and reclining on one of those comfy chairs advertised on every whodunit advert break. I have so much fun playing in a five piece punk band playing gigs over East Sussex. Two of us are over 55 which nowadays is still young if you want it to be. Last month we, The Spiffing Good Eggs' made a 7inch single, something we had always dreamed of in younger years and it was so exciting to actually hold the finished article in my hands and put the needle on the record. We all find it a real thrill to see all ages dancing 'mosh like' at our gigs. I'd like to hear how you 'live' your silver years. Cheers Tony.

I am a pianist and choir singer who has had a secret wish - now no longer secret - to start a band just for fun. I would welcome other rusty musicians who may, like me also want to be in a band, just for fun, as I said. Any takes out there? I am in the Huntingdon area, Cambridgeshire. Hope to hear soon.

Hi I notice that there is not a specific forum on blogging. I have just started a blog myself - https://johnretired.blogspot.co.uk/ and as a newbie to blogging I would welcome chatting to more experienced bloggers for advice and tips or get feedback on how to improve and extend one's blog.

JAZZ ... Who is your favourite Jazz musician ?

It is hard to pick just one favourite as I love so many but in terms of who I play the most it has to be Dave Brubeck with Jan Garberek coming in second place ... followed by Stan Getz and Art Pepper. Would love to hear from other jazz lovers ...
