Thank you for telling us about your dreamy brown eyes and 6 ft 235 lb builds. Please reapply with your social and home address unfortunately your bio-data is just not up to our standards at this time.

It has been nearly 4 months since I was last at this thread. I thank those who have responded. I took an interest in this site because of my life-long interest in Judaism and Jewish culture. Israel has had a special interest to me since the 1950s when I joined a religion with its world centre in Haifa.-Ron Price

No it was the Australian answer to Lassie & aired in the 60's & later again in the 90's in reruns.
