I am husband to one wife – whom I love dearly, father to four married children – who love me dearly (poor deluded fools), and grandfather to 8 who are not quite sure about grandpa!

I work in the IT industry – why I have no idea, but was trained as an electronics technical officer. I still keep my hand in with a reasonably equipped workshop. I also do a moderate amount of metal work and wood work – as long as it is not too demanding.

I am interested in science – as long as it does not contain the letters “bio”. I love music, mainly classical and jazz and am a moderately incompetent performer…. of sorts.

Other than that I live a fairly boring life in southern Australia where the summers are warm, the winters are cool, and the babies are all beautiful.

If you so desire, join me on this journey called life. Or not as your fancy takes you.
