About Me

I work for Care UK in England as their Land Buyer . We provide residential care in some 90 homes across England and Scotland. We need 50 more so I am busy. I travel all over England and do some 60k miles p.a.


Print - Love books and particularly new e-books and their possibilities - my new kindle has changed my life . Such a collection in the palm of my hand - I read abut the history of Christianity , History, Jerusalem ( not because I am overtly religious just fascinated with the confluence of all of the problems and its history and beginings) . I want to understand the roots of religions. Poetry . Pulp fiction - by this I mean crime and other thrillers - just tosh to help me switch off.

Music - rooted in the 70's from early prog (Genesis) Zeppelin , Stones  , NOT the Beatles barring George Harrison .  Blue Oyster Cult - big time Indie - Sisters of Mercy ,Stranglers, Kasabian, most punk ,NOT plastic stuff like Green Day - but Rezillos, Tubes (big time) Ramones Plasmatics etc. The Jam ,Television . Dance/chill - Moby , Oakenfold,Faithless ,Trentemoller ,Tosca.

Time - Watches - I am completely fascinated and always have been . I have my first one still . Collection goes from Jaeger to Casio - love watches that multi task ( not wash up and walk the cat but dual time etc)

Humour - written - Private Eye magazine. Books , Frasier, 30 Rock , League of Gentlemen .Fast Show - I only have to start watching to corpse with the latter two. Robin Williams and sharp observational comedy - hate smug comedians who are still at university in their heads - too many about here now. I like to tweet my daily (well not daily ) observations about life and people .Probably from a slightly world weary perspective.

Gym - Love it .Trained as gym inst when I left school and was 'gathering  myself' at a swich club in London and have loved it ever since. Sirf over the tossers who are up themselves and use it for what I want to get back which is invariably a release of emotion.

Einstein and Leonardo . Albert because he understood the need for a link between science and god . Leonardo because he was the man. Chaos theory - I am reading Gleick and trying to understand it.Its a work in progress,

There you go.....
