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 US Citizenship, they are finally together and living in the South Of England.

“Off The Record With Debbie And Tony” was created as their place to let family, friends and followers know what is going on in their lives, as well as to provide a soapbox where they can air their opinions and thoughts on what is going on in the world.  Together they have been writing on sites such as Squidoo and Yahoo Contributor Network (both now defunct), as well as other websites, blogs and social networking sites, and hope that this blog will become the communications centre for all their online activities.

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, and despite now looking very dated, it still pulls in a surprising number of visitors every month. 

Tony has also been operating a jokes mailing list since 1999, and now has a new humor site The Laughline which is a great repository for jokes, funny pictures and videos.

He also writes on Hubpages, as well as other sites, with articles, poetry and he also enjoys sharing photographs that he has taken on his travels.
