Someone once told me that it was a cathartic / therapeutic experience to write, so I thought I’d try. The idea then warped into the idea of a blog. Things I want to share and talk about; perhaps an opportunity to provoke discussion, but mainly just talk about things that interest me etc. I’ve always tended to be more articulate with the written word too.
Please note however, that NO part of this blog is ever intended as a personal attack on anyone. Opinion from third parties may be referenced or quoted in the context of discussion within blog posts, but it is NOT personal opinion unless specifically stated.
For the most part, posts on here are things like expressions of parental pride in my kids achievements, thoughts regarding hobbies or personal history, and things as docile as admiration for my wife’s gardening. Probably quite dull for the casual reader!

“I have added this page to my blog as a couple of posts were recently misread / misinterpreted, or were perhaps poorly-written on my part. Problems and ill-feeling were the (unintended) results. Whilst provoking debate can be useful, the tension caused was certainly not the intent. As a result, I have restricted access to one post to me alone, deleted one that had become superfluous, and used the benefit of hindsight and reflection to amend the contents of another. They and the blog now more accurately illustrate my own feelings on the matter(s) concerned, and provide a better reflection of my own thoughts rather than those of others which were misinterpreted as being my own.
