Also follow me on:

After spending many years in  printing, publishing and direct marketing I am now semi-retired and living in a small village some fifteen miles north of London. I have always enjoyed writing sales and promotional letters, so when I discovered Hubs, I thought why not give it a go.

I have been writing hubs for five months, but have been reluctant to write my profile as I could not find a recent photograph, and felt I should wait until I could think something interesting to say about myself. But I found a half decent pic (only a year old) and waiting for something interesting could take a life time and a half: so here we are.

My interests are varied and I tend to write about anything that catches my attention.

I have only two pet dislikes (hate is too strong a word)

People on TV quizzes who state they never read books, as if it is something to be proud of.

And I think “My Way” is one of the worst songs ever written

Apart from that I am boringly normal.

I am impressed with friendliness and help I have received from the Hub community I and look forward to the time when I have enough experience in Hub writing to enable me to contribute  and help other new comers.
