August 2, 2013: But hey, Jango is back, with our former Profiles, Email and all. Guess everybody has left, and nobody will notice. Their FRIENDS section has not returned, however. Why am I even here, and writing this?
February 2, 2013: Now what about that, Jango have a new surprise for us. Leaving me completely friendless here all of a sudden. And stuck with a profile without any pictures. Strange that anybody should place any trust in Jango at all. If their aim were to chase us away they couldn't have done better. Come to me all I say to you who read me here, and join me on Facebook where I have pictures, music (in mp3-format too), and stories for you galore. And whose policy and reputation are without a scratch.
I'm single and unemployed, used to be a translator and teacher. Am a lot into history, also languages, in a passive way: Italian, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Polish and Russian. Wintertime I walk, in the summer I cycle. I am out to share thoughts and feelings with anybody who may wish to take me up. Chat about life really. And share music with, of course.
Music. Walking. Knowledge of the world. The movies. Companionship. The internet, which permits us to indulge in any fancy we may have developed over the years.

I read many of them in my day, now I only do some occasional reading on the internet. Mostly the novel in English, detectives too. Also biography and books on history. I do not have any favourite authors. Have read practically everything of Charles Dickens, Kingsley Amis, Joseph Heller, Truman Capote, Raymond Chandler and Graham Greene.
