The rest is much larger in all.  Social coordination and physical effort with the likes of arranging hospital visits and actually getting there and back.  I might try a local add again.

This is a paid position I presume? I'm not sure this is the right forum to recruit someone professionally, there must be channels you can go through to find someone suitable. I fear you'll need to be a little more open minded to find someone though. The world is not out to get you. As you rightly observed in your OP who cares that you're buying toy trains on the internet? Putting barriers in place is doing just that. Best of luck with the search.

I can't say I've ever encountered a site which requires a VPN other than when I'm working from home and connect to my company. 
I've encountered some which don't like you using a VPN, mainly those which want to know your global region from your IP address such as video streaming etc.

Maybe I'm past my sell-by date ?

I think it is probably your 'use by date' which is more important!

Wow - which ones?
I can't remember exactly but most were American.  I deduced that is was not worth the effort for them to set up the GDPR stuff, which is a shame as I had specific interests.  I take security seriously and am far from an expert, there is a lot more to learn simply to make things function properly.
