Hi, I'm new here and joined a couple of groups. I hail (originally) from California (a good place to be from - was there more than 40 years total), and now reside in the Last Best Place, Montana. Been here 5 years, going on 6 and love it. Yes, it gets cold - but you dress for it, and prepare for it. I was married for 15 years, one son (now 32), and now with my current partner going on 17 years. It's been a rough one for the last 11 years, but I do love him, and I know he's sick (both physically and psychologically). The saying, "When the going gets tough...?" My answer is "I stand my ground." It ain't easy.

Living in a rural area, it's hard to make friends, and since this is a college town, even harder to find my peer group.

G'day and welcome to 40ish!  I'm Aramanth from Australia - call me Manth, most people do.  I'm lucky enough to have been married to my best friend for the past 21 years and we have two wonderful daughters.  Athena is 19 and a 3rd year Engineering student while Ishtar is 18 and a 1st year Science student.  Not, this doesn't mean we're empty-nesters - like most kids in Australia they are living at home and commute to campus each day. 

Feel free to jump right into any conversation that takes your fancy.  We don't bite!  Well, not unless you ask us to...
