I just wanted to pick up on something Jim Taylor said in a previous thread around Brexit:

"Jim Taylor, Posted: Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:38pm

"I've been trying to restrain myself from posting any more in this thread, but after a couple of whiskys I can't avoid chipping in........

" some ways I envy those who don't have enough interests or hobbies to keep them fully occupied."
Please let me say upfront that this topic is NOT about Brexit - simply that Jim's comment prompted me to share something with you that I could have shared before.
As an early retiree to Spain about 18 months ago and concerned about keeping my grey matter stimulated, I was lucky enough to be told by a friend about a brilliant website, "FutureLearn": - it's an online learning portal, where you can take online courses for free (or pay an upgrade fee if you want/need your learning to be certificated).  Unlike physical universities and colleges, the start dates for the courses aren't limited to September, you can choose a date that's available, or you can register your interest in a particular course and will be advised when a new start date is available.I've just completed a 6 weeks course on Forensic Science and next week I'll be starting a 3 weeks course on Cyber Security.  The courses are structured in a way that allows you to study at your convenience online and at a pace that suits you individually.  You're also encouraged to share and discuss your learning with fellow students, so it's interesting and fun, and well as educational.I couldn't believe that this incredible resource was available for free, but having tried it, I'd thoroughly recommend it.Kind regards,Kim
