Scribbling in the margins of life

  • Bonjour tout la monde … Welcome to my new space … I’ve decided, inspired by others (I’m looking at you, Pete) walking the path less taken along their own life’s journey, to hack my way through the over-grown jungle of my own past memories and see what lies forgotten beneath the tangle of vegetive thought.…

  • I was lucky enough or, depending on who you speak to, unlucky enough to meet a few royals during my time in the military. The first time was at RAF Mountbattan, in Plymouth, UK, when I had the chance to see and shake hands with the now Princess Royal, Princess Anne. Who, at the time,…

  • Ah, I love Monday evening TV which, tonight, consists of: Brokenwood Mysteries — a police series set in New Zealand The Vanishing Triangle — a true story of a serial killer set in Ireland Harry Wild — a PI series also set in Ireland I love Acorn TV for the choice of shows offered from…
