About the website

This website is called a hub because it exists simply to link and point to a number of websites created by members of the Spathaky family. So clicking on an item in the menu below the picture takes you straight to a website that is created by or written about a member of the Spathaky extended family.

The menu page Wild places links to three websites in the Wild Places collection. They are:

Poems
Mountains
Sailing

Spathaky websites are links to websites created for or by other members of the Spathaky extended family.

Under the title of More websites I have taken the opportunity to integrate more of my own websites into the Hub. In these cases the menu item will take you to the start page of a website where another menu will display enabling you to navigate around that website.

Click on an item of interest on the menu. It may then display more menu items or it may take you direct to another website.

Explore and enjoy!


Who's in the picture?

We'll start with me as it was taken on my 70th birthday in 2012. I'm right in the middle in the orange shirt. Next on the left as you look at the photo is my wife Marian in the striped top. On my other side my Mum (with hat and necklace) and Dad (hand on his knee). Apart from Mum and Dad, that second row are all my generation. My sister Jean is second from the left in the red top; my brother Dave is on the extreme right (in a tie!); my cousin Martin, who came over from Canada, is third from the right (in dark glasses) with his wife Erica (in blue); Next to Jean is my other cousin Helen (Martin's sister) and her husband Bryan, with folded arms.

In the back row is the next generation. From left to right are my niece (Jean's daughter) Natasha and her then partner Rodrigo; my son John and his wife Alison; Kathryn who is Helen's daugher; My son-in-law Chris and daughter Jane; Jean's son Mark and his wife Aldona; Jean's daughter Anna (holding little Molly); Jean's son-in-law Paul (holding Aisha) and daughter Emma.

The front row are the youngest generation - that of Kath and Ron's great-grandchildren. From the left they are: Chris, Finley, Sophie, Libby, Drew, Tom and Janosz. Chris and Sophie are Kathryn's children; Finley and Drew are John and Alison's; Libby and Tom are Jane and Chris's; and Janosz is Mark and Aldona's son.
