I am a 65 year old pensioner. Married to Giorgina and the father of two girls (Romina Maria and Stephanie Maria Lorraine) I am also the Grandfather of one boy (Matthew Joseph) and two girls (Jody Grace and Mireya Francesca).
I hail from the tiny island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea just 60 miles south of Sicily. Our main language is Maltese, having English as our second language. Italian is also widely spoken here too.
I am definitely an outdoor man. My main interests are Fishing, Trap shooting, Photography, Drawing and Painting (I am presently attending the 4th year of a 5 year course leading to a Diploma in Fine Arts) and listening to Classical Music. My favourite Operas are Cavaleria Rusticana and La Boheme.My favourite composers are Tchaikovski and Giacomo Puccini. I also like the occasional holiday abroad (mainly in Europe)
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colours, He made their tiny wings.
The rich man in his castle, the poor man at his gate, God made them high and lowly, and ordered their estate.
The purple headed mountain, the river running by, the sunset and the morning, that brightens up the sky;-
The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, the ripe fruits in the garden,- He made them every one:
The tall trees in the greenwood, the meadows where we play, the rushes by the water, we gather every day;-
He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell, how great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well. .
