Guess who I am to win a bottle of wine


About Lanno

I was born when Richard Nixon was running the show and I am still alive today.
I've had a wide range of employment from Public Service, Nursing, Parliamentary Assistant to a Senator in Canberra and Teaching.
I come from a large family of nine. 
I am the eldest of one set of twins in the family.
I have lived in Canberra, Coonamble and Merriwa.
I enjoy movies and the Academy Awards.
My favourite actress is Meryl Streep.



 


This final Who Am I? brainteaser for the year is a corker. Can you guess who it is?

To go in the draw to win a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot, all you have to do is tell me who I am, following the 10 clues I provide.

The winner will be chosen randomly from the correct entrants next week.

Last week's Who Am I? brainteaser was won by Queenie, of Perth, who correctly answered Eva Peron.
