About Me

My photo
My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

Commander of Apollo 11 Mission Dies

So sad. Astronaut Neil Armstrong the first man on the moon (July 21st, 1969) dies at the age of 82 years.  He recently underwent a heart bypass earlier in the month.  He was undoubtedly one of the heros of our time.

Well remembered historic statement when he radioed back to earth: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Neil Armstrong loved flying. He was a Navy fighter pilot, test pilot and then an astronaut. What a hero...he will not be forgotton.

He received the Congressional Gold Medal last November, along with three other astronauts, it is the highest US civilian award.

RIP Neil Armstrong. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
