Born in 1959 I am the youngest of 4 daughters to Pat (nee Gough) and Ross Fennell. Mother from Broken Hill Father from Robe. Both very loving parents who bought us up to never judge a book by it's cover. No matter what colour, race, religion or financial status.
My dad worked with many immigrants they were called "New Australians" back then. Many of them were our friends and we use to go to their family gatherings. I learnt about different cultures from before the time of my first memories. 
We also had an aboriginal family that we were friends with. My mum and dad use to help them out from time to time and always bathed the kids when they came over.They never said anything bad about them in front of us kids or never put them down because they were without money and were not clean. I knew nothing of racial discrimination. 
I was also bought up with an appreciation for live musical theatre as June Bronhill is my mothers youngest sister.  
With June being in so many musicals we met many other performers. Some of them were gay so I knew what a gay guy was from a very young age. They were guys who liked other guys. That simple really. Nothing bad about it. So I was also bought up not knowing what homophobic was. My parents may not have agreed with "their way" but they never abused, bullied or discriminated  against them for it.
I studied classical singing for a few years but didn't have the get up and go to go out and chase my dream.
Sang in a band "Castle" in my late teens. 
Passion for computers before they were a part of every day life. 
I was on the Internet "Viatel" before it was called the Internet.
Know more about computers and technology than most people my age.  In fact more than most people of any age.
Enjoy Star Trek, Star Wars, Sci-Fi in that order. First Single I ever owned was Michael Jackson "Ben" . ( RIP all for  L.O.V.E. forever). 
Fanatical about William Shantner.

Met the man of my dreams "Peter Rutgers" in 1979 and got pregnant 4 months later. 
He said well I guess we better get married then. We picked out the engagement ring together and put it on layby. One day a few weeks later were sitting at the kitchen table  having a cup of coffee when he threw a small bag at me and said well here. You better put this on. It's been sitting in the glove box for two days and you didn't even notice. 
He drank his coffee then went out to the shed. 
It was my engagement ring. So that was that then, hey. 
I should have realised our marriage was going to be troublesome when on our wedding night  my husband cried for his first wife instead of making love to me.
Peter's first wife died in a car accident and  she was 7 months pregnant at the time. That was only 12 months before we met. 
I was a young and innocent 21yo when I met him and really didn't comprehend what I was getting myself into. 
First marriage ended 7 years later when my husband left me for another woman when I was 29. I was then a single mum with 3 kids.

Met Motz about 18 months after break up We "shacked up together" soon after in 1990. We were soul-mates we decided.  I proposed to him  in a leap year on 29/02/1996. We married on 29/02/2000.
We have 7 children together. His, hers and ours.  Not much help from our x's so we just battled on. 

Goldi Motz and Babsie (Our Stage Names) were full time live entertainers for about 10 years.
Motz was lead singer in various bands and was a stand up comedian. 
We were compares for many different shows and events like Country Footy shows, Fashion Parades, Male Strip show,  Karaoke Competitions, Bucks nights, Karaoke Judges, Spruikers and also  Invited Special Guests for various openings and competitions. 

We decided to go back to the "REAL" workforce when pokies came to SA as it was difficult making a living being  live entertainers from that point on.
As we had all the kids it was hard to make enough money to survive let alone build assets. 
Missed the boat when we were still young enough to buy a house etc. So assets we have little. 
Happy that we were a family for all the kids. That was the main reason for us getting married. We wanted to show the kids that came from our broken marriages that you can commit to a relationship and give and take and work it out. 

So here I am,
52 Lost my good looks haven't sung or performed for years work full time in a job I don't like very much and own very little.
Probably will never achieve many of my dreams and ambitions in life.
Owning my home so I can leave it in my will to divide between all 7 of my kids so they too will be able to be home owners.
Going on an overseas holiday.
Being proposed to.
Having a real diamond engagement ring.
Having a job where I manage young people.
Working in the IT industry.
Over and Out.
