frontiersman: An Introduction
A retired man, married 43 years, with two married sons and two grandchildren, Matthew aged 2 and Elizabeth, born on 28/7/05.
I read a great deal, usually factual material like autobiography. Also the Sunday Telegraph, Prospect magazine and Scientific American. I like to write, but not professionally and never published. We are lovers of mainstream classical music as a family. My wife and I walk as much as we can, given the time! She is a watercolourist and works at our local Infirmary as a W.R.V.S. volunteer on consultant's clinic.
An honours graduate in the social sciences: social and educational psychology and business administration with economics, I also hold a Mensa certificate. I completed a creative writing course with the Open College of the Arts about 8 years ago and also attended the creative writing courses at our local technical college in recent years. Some years ago I took a course at college to become a tutor in 'special needs'. I passed the advanced driving test with the Institute of Advanced Motorists in August 2002, and also the European Computer Driving Licence in the July of that year.
I am a member of the Constitutional Monarchy Association,UK.
Working in accountancy with a large multinational throughout my life, I took early retirement in 1990 due to a long term medical problem.
The h2g2 Editors granted me the honour of displaying that pretty purple plate that appears in my Personal Place that you see to your right, making me an UnderGuide Miner on 11/08/05. I hope they don't come to regret it!
(He! He!) Gives a 'Muttley'- like snigger...Playfully!
God Bless all my two readers + Phred!
(Not forgetting my other five friends and those who, though not posted here, speak to me regularly and are no less important to me!)
A special mention to recognize my fellow h2g2 UnderGuide Officials and those of the Edited Guide who have helped me in my various endeavours.
