About Alice Solomon

Because this is my first entry into the blogging world, I thought posting a bit of my background would be useful. Hence, my bio:

  1. G’day Incredibly enough my name is Alice Solomon and I live in Seymour, Victoria, Australia. I am a Solomon because I married a man named John/Jack to all his friends.
    I am of aboriginal descent and I am a respected elder of my community.
    It’s great to know somebody out there has the same name as me.

  2. Welcome, Australian Alice Solomon! What fun it is to meet another Alice.

    I was married to Harry Solomon for 25 years and then divorced. I was going to change back to my maiden name after the divorce but then realized that it might be difficult for my children. Hence I kept it.

    Do you have any children.

    Best, Alice

  7. Alice:
    I saw your show on TV and was intrigued with what u had to say. Exactly, I am that woman who is self contained. Aged 70 (65 sounds good) and I too, did not change my name after divorse because of the children. I have my own home and would like to find someone who would be interested in spending time on the beach at the Jersey shore . So far, not lucky but then again I have a 49 year old mind and can’t cope with a 75 yr old if I met one. I read all above and am interested in talking to other folks who are in the same boat as I am.
