There we are above. In the first picture we are seated just
outside a hotel situated just above the High Coast Bridge.
Quite a landmark in this area. In the second picture we are
located just outside our home town of Härnösand in an area
where you have a good view across 'Ångermanälven' - the
sea/river inlet that is the heart of the province of
That's me, David, on the left in the first picture. I'm the
Webmaster who is creating our Web pages so it's me doing
most of the talking here on what we call our DaSanKa Web
As you can see, not all Internet geeks are spotty faced
teenagers. We are not yet quite what I heard one person
call 'recycled teenagers' but yes, we are getting close.
What do most people want to know about a person when they
first meet? Well, let's see. Name, age, location,
occupation, family, interests, hobbies etc. Sometimes more
personal things like religion, opinions and political
Names are easy. David and Katarina Meredith. Happily
married since 1995. No children of our own, though we both
have families from earlier marriages. Which of course hints
at our ages. Time of writing, September 2009, and I will be
62 later this year. In keeping with good manners and
tradition I'm not going to tell you how old Katarina is.
Over 50 but not near 60. That's all I'm saying.
Occupations. Katarina is a hotel receptionist and me, I'm a
retired hospital supplies manager who loves dabbling on the
Now some of the other stuff. Well we are normal in so far
as we live in a community just like everybody else. We
wouldn't have it any other way. We are law abiding citizens
who are involved and contributing as best we can. We are
not dropouts or extremists or radicals or anything like
that but some of our ideas, beliefs and our life viewpoint
could be considered 'different' or even 'strange' by some.
We are not competitive people, not in the least. Indeed we
bore most people to death because of our lack of interest
in sports and other competitive endeavours. Strange, but it
is this that most people have a problem with.
Our total lack of interest and our inability to comprehend
why vast amounts of humanity are 'obsessed' with 'winning'
in games and contests baffles even offends some people.
Still, that's us and obviously it will show through in our
Web pages. If it offends, sorry. Perhaps it would be best
if you sought another Web site.
On the other hand we truly admire everything that is
creative and expansive in a life giving way. This drives
our passion in everything we do. We see life as being about
growth and creative development. Especially the individual.
Whilst working together and co-operating is the key to
achieving more we recognise that it is the calibre of the
individuals involved that makes for high quality results.
Goal striving and success achievement do not have to be
competitive. A creative vision can achieve wonders without
having to pay the price of putting someone else down.
This explains our life long passion for the field of self-improvement
and personal development. You will find this to
be the major theme of our Web site. A 'Better World Through
Better People' is very much our motto. We see this as one
of the more important missions we are committed to. If you
like it I hope you will join us. How do you do that? Just
adopt the motto. Make it a part of your mindset. Contact
us. Introduce yourself, say hello. Voice your opinions.
Sorry, we are not an organised body. There is no sign-up,
nothing to join. Maybe I'll create a forum sometime. Time,
yes, that's the problem.
Oh, one other thing. Not only is English my mother language
I was raised and educated in England and thus write in
British English. If some of the spelling looks odd to you,
that's why. Katarina is 100% Swedish. If she writes
anything it will probably be filtered through me. Unless
you want to see the original Swedish that is.
Well, anyway that's David and Katarina Meredith in a
nutshell so to speak. Pleased to meet you and thanks for
visiting our Web site.
