Welcome to my Space
I hope to get around to editing this ramble and even attempting GuideML at some time. (This is why I have joined the Time Travellers Guild! I never seem to have enough of it.)
Interests - practically anything, except perhaps some sports.
Been there(but not everywhere)! Done that (or perhaps not)!
Like reading Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Historical (preferable with some historic fact rather the Histerical)but have been noted to pick up anything to read from the odd Classic, a book mentioned on the Big Read, Pratchett (of course), Harry Potter to the Beano and the Argos catalogue (if I'm really bored and there is nothing else around that I haven't read already).
Was known in my youth for adding up all the columns of numbers in telephone directories.
Like Cooking, all styles - from Boiled Beef & Carrots, Yorkshire Puds, Faisenjun, Dolmas, Dim Sum, Feijoada. With a collection of fresh goodies from the shops am often seen browsing for a recipe until it becomes absolutely necessary to cook something for the horde to eat! Have extensive collection of Cookery Books.
Also interested in local history (wherever we live), amateur dramatics, archaeology, nature, the environment, animals (we have over 40 on 4 legs, and some bantams), trivia, earthquakes, volcanos, continental drift, paleontology. Have quite good selection of illustrated guides to .....
Design and paint pantomime and other scenery for local AmDram Group. Have also designed and made period costumes for them. Have quite a good selection of books on Costume....
Have been known to have a game of Bridge, Backgammon or Mah-Jong and have played loads of competitive card games(for loose change). Have no interest whatsoever in Chess.
BSc½ failed (Geology, Zoology, Maths), my college days are long passed.
First work - a programmer, systems analyst, on one of those giant Main Frame computers that took up at least 3 floors.
Then married with 2 children (gave the .4 away to help a friend out with her third)which are still? keeping me busy.
Current status:- Married, 2 offspring, but house has been occupied by at least 6 people since last May. (At that time we had 4 dogs and one house cat - now have 6 dogs and 2 house cats)
