Hi, I'm Gary, and while I don't remember when this was all fields, I do remember when it was a quaint little village with its own post office, bus service and junior school. I'm quite pleased about the fact that it now also has a Cricket Ground, which goes well with my Project on Cricket at the University of Life.

I used to be a sub-editor, then with the splitting of that function into two parts I became a Scout. Sadly, I don't have so much time any more and have had to step back from volunteer duties, but it's nice to have seen the process from so many angles.

Because of my sub-editing days, the list of "Edited Guide Entries" you might see to the left is rather overstated. The following Guide entries are ones where I was responsible for a significant chunk (>30%) of the original material:

The last link is just so that I can visit some people more easily without having to remember which forum we last spoke on.

Note: this account has no connection with the book of the same name by John O'Farrell, and indeed I've been using this username since 1999, two years before that was published. My legal team have been informed!
