Readers' Letters
Have Your Say!

Dear Sixtyplusurfers



This picture shows me on the way to Southampton docks May 4th, 2010. Excitedly I was to embark on a holiday of a lifetime and I will treasure the memories always.

My lovely husband Steve had booked this for me and my daughter as a surprise to celebrate not only our wedding anniversary but to also celebrate something else very special and very precious! Life itself!

I will explain. It was a sunny day in July and I was planning to go into town with my Daughter who was 11 at the time. As I was getting ready I had a strange ache in my arm but shrugged it off. My husband commented that I did not look well and that I should go back to bed. I replied saying that it would be be okay and after I'd visited town I would have a lie down. Then I proceeded on my journey.

I am not going to go into too much detail, because that is another story in itself, but as I was on the way back to my car with my daughter I collapsed. That is all I remember until waking in hospital 3 days later!

I learned that I had suffered a massive heart attack, where upon arrival at hospital I went into cardiac arrest. I was worked upon for 40 minutes and defibrillated twice! I was in a coma for 3 days where my family were told it was 50/50. I was 44 years of age.

My consultant told me that had it not have been for the brave actions of my 11 year old daughter I would not be here today! Needless to say I do believe she is my guardian angel and I am so so proud of her.

I am left with CHF and other illness and lost my job nursing due to my mobility being so poor now … BUT this is a minute price to pay for my life, I am so very grateful to be here.

And so, back to this amazing adventure. We reached Southampton and embarked upon the most amazing Mediterranean cruise on the Grand Princess for a wonderful 14 nights. The memories I will treasure ALWAYS!

I am truly the most luckiest person EVER and I cherish every waking minute of every hour of every beautiful day.

Tracey Anderson, West Midlands


Dear Tracey

What a wonderful story. You must be so proud of your daughter.

It's wonderful that you were all able to celebrate together on the Grand Princess Mediterranean Cruise and that you have such wonderful memories of your holiday.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 



My son's Paul wife gave birth in Switzerland to my first grandson who they called Clayton in September.

Seven weeks later in London my daughter Michelle gave birth to her second child also a boy who she called Brody a brother for Holly. At Christmas the two boys met for the first time!!

Holly was 2 just after Christmas. So it's been a hectic but enjoyable time. Obviously I will travel to Switzerland as much as possible but enjoy Face Time most days so I keep in touch.

Rose Janes, Monmouth


Dear Rose
 
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photograph and telling us about your lovely grandchildren. How wonderful that Clayton and Brody were able to meet for the first time at Christmas.

It's great that you can see all your grandchildren on Face Time and also travel to Switzerland when you can.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

When I discovered mice in our shed, I went to the local superstore and asked at the help-desk if they sold mouse-traps.

"Yes sir", came the reply, "they're upstairs in the Pet-Care section".

Mervyn Saunders, Merthyr Tydfil

Dear Mervyn
 
Thank you for telling us your funny story. I wouldn't want to find out what else they sell in the Pet-Care section of your local superstore!

I hope you managed to sort out your mouse problem.

Melissa Braiden, Letters & Admin

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

My local play group has a board on display that tells you how much sugar is in sweets and drinks.

I think it's a great idea, I hope the other mums will stop feeding their children this rubbish!

Jane Whitaker, Margate

Dear Jane
 
That's a great idea. It's an eyecatching and easy to understand way of highlighting the amount of sugar in drinks and sweets and to encourage parents to give their children a healthier diet.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor
 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Recently I entered a competition to try and find your First Car. It brought back some very happy memories. My first car was a Talbot Sunbeam, not around today of course but just the name Sunbeam was inspiring. Guess what I called her? Yes, of course, Sunny.

My best friend Wendy and I cruised around in her 24/7 she gave us such confidence, we were young, we thought we looked amazing, and now we had wheels, life was at its best and boy was we enjoying it. The three of us were super glued together, we had the best times. During these times I met my future husband and luckily for me Sunny could drive me each weekend to his parents home some 30 miles away.

Sunny and I would go and met him at the train station car park once each week while he attended college in a nearby city and we would sit and talk endlessly. We eventually married, some 33 years ago now. I had to say goodbye to Sunny when I had children but my best friend and hubby are still very much with me.

Strange to think cars can hold such happy and everlasting memories.

Angela Fenton

Dear Angela
 
Thank you for telling us about Sunny. It sounds like your trusted Talbot Sunbeam brought you lots of happiness and helped you to meet your husband.

The older cars had so much personality. I still drive my old Nissan Primera - it must be about 20 years old now! And although he's a bit rusty, he always starts first time. I call him Arthur - as he is so reliable and just like an old friend.

We'd love to hear about other readers' cars and the stories behind them.

Win a Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera

Win a Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Polaroid to offer one lucky reader the chance to win the New Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera in Red. The Polaroid Snap is the perfect blend of nostalgic Polaroid instant photography with a sleek modern design that fits into your pocket.

The Polaroid Snap boasts digital imaging technology, which enables you to easily print and share physical photos at the push of a button, whilst saving the image for easy uploading to a computer and any social media platform.

The Polaroid Snap is a 10MP digital instant camera with an integrated printer that uses ZINK® Zero Ink Printing Technology, which instantly prints full colour, 2x3” prints automatically when an image is captured. Thanks to its quick print abilities, you can snap a new picture even while it’s still printing. ZINK Paper® is adhesive backed so the photo can be used as a sticker as well.

Additionally, the camera features a Micro SD card slot that holds up to 32GB to save and easily transfer and upload images to a computer, cloud service or social media platform. With a clean and minimalist design, the Polaroid Snap offers a truly unique feature set including different capture modes - color, black and white and also the classic vintage Polaroid borders.

The camera also features a Photo Booth mode, which takes four pictures a few seconds apart and prints all on one page. There is also an option for printing with or without the Polaroid Classic Border Logo format. These features mean you can easily add your own enhancements to the print before you even take their photo.

If that’s not enough then you can also take the perfect instant selfie thanks to the camera’s selftimer feature.

Readers' Letters

Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers




I've just come back from Ethiopia. My son is posted there and my daughter in law and grandson are all there for three years. I was missing them terribly and I went out there mid-December for Christmas and stayed for a month.

I wasn't prepared for Ethiopia! I thought I knew 'Third World Country' could mean poverty and deprivation. What I saw was distressing and shocking.

A capital that is chaos and over crowded. Seems no driving laws, well, none adhered to ! You just pull out, honk your horn and hope for the best! Oh I got used to it quite quickly but it's so different. Perpetual dust, no sanitation, even in the city little water for most of the slum dwellings. Though a people who easily smiled and were so friendly.

I love birds. There was unrest in the Oromia region so we couldn't travel outside Addis Ababa at first. The it eased so we could go to Lake Langano for a weekend. An area south of Addis. Every time I looked around there was another different bird. It was paradise. From the aptly named 'Superb Starling' to a very superb Abyssinian Owl, so much bird life to just sit back and watch.


Ugly but fascinating Black Billed Barbets decided they loved some noodles we left out! A Pied Kingfisher went on a dusk expedition for his supper. The 'WAH' of the White-bellied Go-Away Bird, raucous and letting us know he was always there watching us! The common birds are bright and fascinating. I spent two days just watching.

The poverty is grinding. Local children have barely rags for their backs. We had taken some of my Grandson's clothes as they had noticed previously many of these children may just have one piece of clothing, most certainly no shoes.

Although the children come up to the car to beg for money they loved receiving the clothing gifts. On leaving they danced in front of the car, although these little ones had no ordinary life. All worked hard from being very tiny.

I'll never forget Ethiopia. When I go back I am taking more clothes with me. Some for adults too. I know plenty of charities collect, but these are for people that charities don't find. Some children were more aggressive in their begging. Mainly the older boys.... but with their lives, they have to get all they can by any means they can. We didn't have much trouble with them. I'll never forget the smiles on a small boy's face when we gave him a tee shirt. He had only a pair of shorts!

Ruth Grover, Hartlepool

Dear Ruth

Thank you for telling us about your recent trip to Ethiopia and sharing your fabulous photographs. It must have come as such a surprise to see such poverty and hardship. You must have brought so much happiness bringing the poor children some clothes. Let's hope your letter highlights the poverty in Ethiopia and charities do more to help these people with their plight.

We are delighted to let you know that you are the winner of this month's Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Lemon4Seasons Lemon Tree, presented in a basket.

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 



This photo was taken on 24th January. In the distance is my husband, youngest daughter and grandson at a beautiful spot in Devon called Bigbury On Sea. It's a gorgeous place to visit at any time of the year, I love it with the waves crashing in Winter.

There's an island which is cut off by the sea at high tide but you can catch the Sea Tractor over for Ł2 each way. The Tractor is really high up and has giant wheels, it's a really fun way to travel through the sea. On the island is an amazing Art Deco style hotel which you can be flown to by helicopter. It's approx Ł400 a night. Yes a night!!

The rooms look beautiful (never stayed but I can afford to look at the pics). It looks like something straight out of Agatha Christie and there is a slight worry that you may be killed with the candlestick in the library by Professor Plum. For the slightly less well off non residents can have Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the price is reasonable.

There's a little really old pub called The Pilchard Inn on the island which always seems busy. You can stay in the room above it...for those thinking this a cheaper pub priced option prepare to be disappointed - it's owned by the hotel and the price shows it. You can walk to the top of the island which has beautiful views over the estuary.

There's a sheer drop on the left which isn't fenced off bizarrely - lemmings beware. On the land side is the huge beach there are some apartments with balconies which look nice and would have a fabulous view - you can rent these and I spied an indoor pool there. Cliff walks go over to Challaborough a fab beach for children and there is a caravan site or the other way to Bantham...apparently a very strong rip tide so not the place to take your boogie board but a fabulous walk.

I love this place and highly recommend for a visit or a holiday. I am lucky enough to live near by - every time we go I love it a little more.

Elisa Trueman

Dear Elisa

Thank you for telling us about Bigbury On Sea and sharing your beautiful photograph. It looks like a lovely place to visit.

We'd love to hear about any other places that readers would recommend to visit.

Murray Jacobs, Managing Editor

 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 

When the call came, I really didn’t believe it at first. “You have won three tickets to the X-Factor live results show this Sunday. Will you be able to go and could you let me know the names of the guests in the next half hour?” I messaged my teacher daughter at work and she was thrilled. So on the Sunday me almost 66, my husband 71 and our daughter a more respectable 29 travelled to the Fountain Studios in London where we were VIP guests. We found out that we would see One Direction record two segments, one for the show and one for Australian television. We were also to see Jess Glynne live. My daughter became as excited as a teenager. She was going to get some serious "street cred" the next day with her students.

Needless to say, me and my husband were by far the oldest people in the VIP suite. We were treated to amazing food, posh fish and chips, Chinese duck, sandwiches and the best éclairs I’ve ever had and unlimited drinks from the bar. We don’t drink alcohol any more, so it was a bit wasted on us, but at least we didn’t get wasted! After all these treats we were told that all the VIPs would be sitting together in the studio and that when we had enjoyed the live show and the first part of the Xtra Factor when the judges talk about the show, we would be taken back to the hospitality suite for more food and a goody bag.

It was so much fun to see what actually goes on in a live show. The studio is smaller than it appears on TV, so we had a good view of everything. The things that go on when the cameras aren’t rolling are just as entertaining as the show. The studio manager was brilliant at getting us all up dancing, clapping and shouting. He did some really sweet things for the young fans. One girl was allowed on stage to hug and kiss all the boys in One Direction. She was so overcome, she couldn’t speak. Another girl was so distraught at not meeting them, she was whisked backstage to spend time with them.

Other fans who had been tweeting the studio manager all day, got to meet their favourite judges. Again, cue tears and disbelief mixed with delight. We were there for Olly Murs now notorious for mixing up the results, saw Simon Cowell and Caroline Flack and some of the contestants close to. I enjoyed everything, from watching the camera crew climbing up dangling ladders to get to their ceiling height cameras, to the rapid set changes. It was a wonderful experience and one not many oldies would have, but now I’m a keen follower of the rest of the series (I hadn't even seen it before) and know a lot more about how live television works.

We were like three kids on the way home, sitting on the train looking through our goodie bags. We’ve not worn our X-Factor t-shirts yet, but the shopping bags are coming in very useful.


Margaret Abram

Dear Margaret

Thank you for telling us about your fabulous time as an X-Factor VIP. That sounds like such a lot of fun and something you will never forget.

Here is a picture of the biscuits I made to sell at work.

What a beautiful photograph. It must have been lovely to see it on display at Gardeners World Live at Birmingham NEC.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

On Boxing Day we had whole baked salmon.

One of my young grandchildren said to her sister, "Oh these bones! Why do they have to have bones?!

The older one said, "because they would be jelly fish otherwise!"

How sharp was she!

Jay Reynolds, Brixham

Dear Jay
 
What a great story. Children can be so wise and creative in their thinking.

We'd love to hear other interesting things that grandparents have heard their grandchildren say.

Kitty Jacobs, Letters & Admin

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

My son's girlfriend is Polish and doesn't speak very good English. I invited them round to sample my famous pepper and chorizo soup.

When they were leaving she turned to me and said, "Thank you for the slop,"

She didn't know why we were laughing hysterically!

Jane Whitaker, Margate

Dear Jane
 
What a funny story. I hope you explained the joke afterwards!

Murray Jacobs, Managing Editor

     Win a Smartphone
  from Amplicomms


Win a Smartphone from Amplicomms


Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Amplicomms to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a fabulous M9000 Smartphone.

The M9000 Smartphone is perfect for older phone users and people with hearing loss or limited dexterity. It includes all the benefits of an Android touchscreen smartphone with an easy-to-use operating system, large icons and special features including an SOS button, extra-loud volume and hearing aid compatibility.

Dual operating system

The M9000 has two operating systems to choose from; Amplicomms own operating system is simple to use with extra-large icons, intuitive menus and large, easy-to-read text and built-in apps including a music player, calendar, email and internet browser. The second is the Android operating system – with access to over a million apps, most of them free, and it's easy to switch between the two in the phone's settings menu.

Louder and clearer

The M9000 boasts unique features for the hard of hearing, offering super-clear sound with a very loud volume that’s 100 times louder (40dB) than standard mobiles and a ringtone as loud as an approaching train (up to 90dB). It also offers the world’s highest level of hearing-aid compatibility (T4/M4).

Emergency service

The SOS button on the rear of the M9000 can be programmed to call or text selected contacts or a call centre delivering a pre-recorded message or establish a hands free conversation, reassuring older or disabled users.

Dual SIM cards

Two SIM card slots let users easily switch between two phone numbers. Making calls abroad affordable on a local SIM card with no roaming charges, while still being able to receive calls on their usual number.

Smartphone Benefits

The lightweight phone can be used to take photos and videos, store and play music, and to stay in touch with friends and family using email, Facebook or video chat apps like Skype. The phone's memory can be expanded up to 64GB, enough for the largest music collection and a near-infinite album of photos of the grandchildren.

The M9000 is louder, lighter and offers superior sound quality compared with rival products. Discrete looking, easy to use and packed with carefully thought-out extra features for older users – the Amplicomms M9000 truly is the first smartphone ever that's accessible to all.

The Amplicomms M9000 Smartphone costs Ł99.99, is SIM-free and is available to buy from www.robertdyas.co.uk

About The Contemporary Home

The Contemporary Home is a small (but perfectly formed) company living in a big converted boat house on Hayling Island: A real island just off the coast of Portsmouth. Maybe you know it? If you do, you'll be thinking of beach huts, ice cream parlours, fun fairs, fish and chip shops, a seaside train and miles upon miles of beach. And if you don't... well, you'll probably want to visit now!

We know how much our beautiful environment enhances our day-to-day life and we wanted to share a little bit of that special feeling with everyone. So, led by managing director Clare Satchwell and a crack team of like-minded individuals, The Contemporary Home was born. Our mission: To bring our love of shopping and all things inspiring to our customers in the way we'd like to experience it ourselves (unusual, eclectic, fuss-free, unforgettable and fun!)

To create our collection, we've trawled through countless suppliers, attended a whole host of trade shows, wheeled and dealed, and wined and dined. We've jumped through hoops and pulled things out of hats and, when that wasn't good enough, we've made it up ourselves (most notably our Brussels Sprout Wreath, which has appeared in more magazines and TV shows than we feel we can safely mention without deafening ourselves with our own trumpet!)

From small beginnings we've found ourselves branching out to stock products from some of the most up-and-coming new designers, as well as being courted by the national press for our phenomenally successful Christmas and Gift ranges. We're constantly creating and collecting and we never, ever get bored, so that you won't either.

So come with us on a journey that's more than just an internet shopping spree? It's our personal mission to spread love, light and happiness to every household and homestead in Great Britain and beyond. We hope you enjoy the ride!

You can find us at www.tch.net

a Soup Bowl Gift Set and
   Cute Wooden Seagull

Evening Walk

Evening Walk Puzzle from Ravensburger

This atmospheric puzzle portrays a gentle evening stroll along the streets of Paris in the 1950s. In the foreground is a fruit, veg and flower stall, beyond which we see an elegant lady taking her dog for his evening exercise.

In the middle distance we see the red awnings of a restaurant and beyond that we get a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. Warm light glows from the street lamps and rich mauve and pink tones flood the evening sky. This charming scene promises plenty of puzzling challenges and delights.

Garden Vistas No.1


Garden Vistas No.1 Puzzle from Ravensburger


This colourful image takes us on an imaginary walk in a splendid country garden. The spring flowers are in full bloom, and the path weaves through beds brimming with tulips, wallflowers, hosta, geranium, clematis, iris, forget-me-nots, rhododendron and narcissus.

Through the carefully clipped hedge we get a tantalising glimpse of a conservatory, with table, chairs and tea-for-two awaiting our arrival. This is the first in a series of garden vistas, created especially for Ravensburger by leading botanical artist Anne Searle. Includes in-box A4 colour leaflet showing puzzle image for reference, information about the image and artist's biography.
