Hi, I'm Bob. I'm 76, retired in 1997, amateur web designer (self-taught), living in Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK, still playing squash regularly. Started several blogs to fulfil a need to write, and dabbled with Facebook and Twitter. Then in September 2011 I discovered Squidoo and started building lenses. Suddenly I really felt part of a community! Wow! Got my first Lens of the Day on 18th November 2011 and, in December, made it to the Top 100 Lenses of 2011. Thanks to all who voted for me and everyone's kind comments!

Then in September 2014, Squidoo closed down and I joined Hubpages!

Believe it or not, I've been in 'computers' since 1967. That's before some of you were even born! I first worked on an NCR-500, which occupied a room as big as my house and had about as much computing power as my watch. Now I scratch around on the Internet earning a few pennies here and there to supplement my pension. Recently, with the demise of Squidoo, I migrated all my lenses to Hubpages and am now busy turning them into hubs.
