About Us

DELOVESTO.COM is the official web site of Debbie and Tony, who spent 3 years in a long distance relationship between South Florida and England.  It’s ironic that they both grew up within 30 miles of each other in Southern England, yet only met while living 4,500 miles apart.   Having worked hard to overcome problems with visas for Debbie and for Tony to get his USA Citizenship, they are finally together and living in the South Of England.

“Off The Record With Debbie And Tony” was created as our place to let family, friends and followers know what is going on in our lives, as well as to provide a soapbox where we can air our opinions and thoughts on what is going on in the world.  Together they have been creating lenses on Squidoo, working with other websites, blogs and social networking sites, and hope that this blog will become the communications centre for all their online activities.


DebbieDebbie grew up in Southern England and has lived there all her life.   She works with children who have emotional and/or behavioural problems and her hobbies include reading, walking, genealogy and surfing the internet.  Debbie is also a Squidoo Lensmaster and co-owner of an online gift store, My Brilliant Gifts.


TonyTony also grew up  in Southern England, moved to London after graduating from university, spent a year in New Zealand in the late 1980′s, then moved to the USA in 1994.

  He has lived in South Florida since 2005 and moved back to the UK to be with Debbie in 2009.  

Tony works in the IT industry and has also been developing web sites since 1998, his oldest site The Poddys Directory had it’s 10th anniversary in 2008. 

Tony has also been operating a jokes mailing list since 1999, and now has a new humor site The Laughline.

He is a Giant Squid on Squidoo, and also writes regularly on the Yahoo  Contributor Network with articles, poetry and also enjoys sharing photographs.

  1. Hi Deb,

    Oh my, I enjoyed reading your blog. You and Tony are a fine looking couple!! Hope that fat little squirrel comes to visit again.

    I might think about starting a blog, but I just don’t know how to go about it and what all is involved in the process.

    Deb, my girlfriend Sandra, lives in Canvey Island. We’ve been friends since we were 13 years old. Her family moved back to London three years later. Her parents just missed jolly old England too much. However, Sandra and I have always kept in touch to this day. Mind you, the last time we saw each other was at the airport in London in 1968 when I was going to Germany.

    Good luck with your blog. I’m sure you will have a lot of fun.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed my witterings :) You haven’t seen your girlfriend since 1968?!? Book a flight and do whatever you have to and go and visit her. Life’s too short to let time slip away.
      What’s your SU id?

    Great blog.

    I am also using the quickpress theme, and I want to change the header as you have done, but I can’t work out how to do it!

    Any clues?
