Jenny105 spotlight topic header image


Hello everyone, I hope you've had a good week and are enjoying your Friday.


I'm happy to announce that we have a new Community Spotlight to post today! Happy Dance @Jenny105 has been a member on our community since 2014, and you might have seen her around in various discussions over the past few years, both in general discussions, and also often asking and getting great help to various tech questions. It was awesome to be able to prepare this spotlight with her and I hope you all enjoy reading it and getting to know her a bit more.


Don't hesitate to ask if you have any additional questions not listed below. smiling



What's your name and where are you from?

Hi my name is Jeannie, I was born in Sussex but moved to Winchester gradually moving back to East Sussex where I've lived ever since. A beautiful county with sea, the cliffs and rolling Downs. 


Why did you join and stay on the community?

It was a few of years ago that I joined. It was probably to ask a question about my clam shell phone. I was surprised by the generosity, kindliness- and professional answers. 


What do you like about O2? 

The reason I love O2 in general is the LIVE CHAT. For deaf/partial hearing this is amazing. Being part hearing I know how to be precise and use written detail to get the best out of this service. Its not for everyone as it can seem tedious, long and drawn out. For me its cool, reassuring and professional.

How do you take your tea/coffee?

Early morning from a kettle by the bed! Milk, teabag, boiling water. Fairtrade. I love Peanut Hottie when it can be found.

What's your favourite animal and why?

The Manatee, a flobby, blobby sea creature from Florida. Thought to have been what sailors called a mermaid. I ought to choose dogs. I like dogs, it was never possible to own one. I'm hoping to own a Sounds Dog for the deaf in the coming year.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I used to belong to a Camera Club plus The Rock but my hearing made that difficult. So now Code word puzzles, Aqua classes x 2, sea swimming from a beach hut, a smaller Choir called Eden Blue, A rock, pop and gospel group plus lip reading classes. We enjoy country downland walks and picnics. That is when I'm not messing around on my laptop or on O2 Community.

Im Mum to one son in an automotive body shop, Nana to 2 lovely grandchildren 11 and 9. They/we  enjoy our garden swings, nature, space and the rock pools on the beach.

I retired early from teaching ESL in primary schools, illness and deafness issues, but became a disability adviser until full retirement.

Which future development in tech are you excited about?

None, since the invention of Apps and smartphones confusion reigns. However if something could be found to improve my hearing that would be wonderful.

What's your favourite TV show and movie?

Mrs Browns Boys is top of the list tho we watch a lot of old Dads Army replays. Movie - probably - Sliding Doors, an intriguing glimpse fate and chance.


Do you listen to any specific music genre and what's your favourite artist/band?

I stopped listening to music about 20 years ago. But I practice choir enjoying Gospel.  In Rock choir I loved ''Hallejujah'' in Eden Blue ''Amen''.


Which mobile phone do you currently have and what do you like about it?

Amplicomms M9500. It's a phone I can hear, tho rarely do I have the courage to ring. Whatsapps and text are great. The phone has the facility to be used in Simple Mode.

If you could have a one-to-one conversation with any celebrity (dead or alive), who would it be?

Cliff Richard      or Jesus      The local sign language group use Cliffs Xmas songs for their winter charity concerts. I'd also love to hear more about his life and career.  Jesus would be uncomfortable but intriguing.



Thanks again @Jenny105  for answering our questions above. Much appreciated! hugging

I can't begin to imagine what a Peanut Hottie is... but I have had Peanut Soup many years ago, very tasty.


Nice to read a little more about you, @Jenny105!

Hmmmmm  sounds a bit suspect, -risque doesnt it .   A peanut hottie isnt a hot water bottle fuelled by roasted peanuts . It comes in a coffee sized jar in tiny granule form. I guess it has ground peanuts , milk powder and sugar (?). Pop some into a mug with hot water to mix and yummy yummy.

Additions made were tspn hot choc,  or coffee, or Baileys    or all 3:smileyhappy:


If U like the sound of P H rush to local supermarket along with with family, friends, enemies and 02 community PM pals, FB friends, instagram , whats app  and demand to know where the Peanut Hottie is Mexican Wave         That way i might get another jar.    If found lurking on the shelves of a store please pass on the identity of said shop x

Lovely Spotlight @Jenny105m, thanks for answering all those questions smiling


I love that your favourite animals are manatees and dogs, the former is quite unsual!
