Hi..I’m Liane – I was born in Gainesville,
Florida and was raised in the waves off New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
When I was 14 I had promise of being another Julie Andrews, sang my way
through junior and senior high, and attended Florida
State University, where I spent my time training as a vocal education
major. I also played the tympani in the concert band and tenor
drums in the marching band, thus being able to see all the football games
from a good vantage point. After graduation I decided to seek
out exciting places in the world, so I spent three years in Taiwan where
I learned I did not enjoy teaching (and quickly learned shorthand and typing),
and two and ½ years in Greenland. During my tour in Greenland
I became one of the world’s coldest radio DJ’s, but I was also fortunate
to be able to travel throughout Europe.
I moved to Colorado Springs,
Colorado in 1974. I began participating with a WWII living
history group in 1994, where I met Martyn. I moved to Denver in 1995,
and Martyn and I were married in November, 1996. I have continued
in the field of executive assistant/paralegal for over 35 years. At the
time of writing I am wishing I were retired from the legal field
and spending my time growing vegetables, quilting, playing with my dogs, and RVing.
I was born and raised in Bristol,
England. Attended Bristol Grammar School (founded in 1532 by
a Charter from King Henry VIII). From there went to Bristol Tech
College for five years, qualifying in Building Construction and Management.
In 1988 decided to move to live in the USA. On arrival in the USA,
toured the whole of the western half, traveling from Seattle to San Diego,
then north-east to eventually lose steam in Denver, Colorado.
I fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and all things about Colorado and
at the time of writing have been here for just over 27 years, living in
the City of Aurora which is part
of the Greater Denver Metro Area. In November 1998 we moved east
of Denver to Bennett, Colorado,
where we now have 5 acres and have our horses with us. Having become
disillusioned with Construction I decided to use my computer knowledge and
switched careers in 1989, joining the Oil & Gas Industry. I have now been
with the same company
(DCP Midstream) for about 25 years. At Thanksgiving in 1996 I married
the lovely Liane in a ceremony at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO (you
may know this as the setting for Stephen King's "The Shining". We
have returned to my homeland on numerous occasions and have included lots of
pictures in this site.
