    Hello! Thank you for your comment on my site. May I ask what the “University of the Third Age” is? Something about getting older and reinventing yourself maybe? Just curious. Thanks, D

      The U3A is a national organisation; a do-it-yourself university for retired folk. Members have experience and knowledge and run courses or lead study groups. In my area we have 1200 members studying more than a hundred subjects including latin and other languages, history, science, music, art, literature and technology. I am an engineer by profession but lead a social history study group.

        That is very interesting! Sounds like fun. Do you have any Texas locations? Technically, I’m not retired, but it sounds like you have wonderful, interesting get-togethers.

        I will check this out in the USA and/or find out more about the UK. Yes, I’m in the USA. 🙂

    A USA U3A – sounds interesting. I don’t know Texas well; do you consider yourselves to be in the USA currently? Anyway, on your question, The U3A is a British institution at the present but I could ask about affiliation – since we have a special relationship with the USA. If that turns out to not be possible at the present time, perhaps you could just do your best to keep up by following my U3A PPS (People, Politics and Society) blog http://pmorleywriter.wordpress.com/ (You’ll see we studied the US Declaration of Independence) and here is the U3A website http://www.u3a.org.uk/u3a-movement.html

    Peter,
    I just ordered Orange Juice and Cod Liver Oil via your website and look forward to reading it. Thank you again for coming to see What Do You Mean during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
    Best wishes,
