Joined 9 years ago from London, Ontario, Canada
I am a former production management specialist in the field of a printing, publishing, and the graphic arts, now retired.
My personal interests lie mainly in the sciences, leaning more so to the life-sciences where the great unsolved mysteries of life’s origins have yet to be discovered, but I am also a follower of anthropology, the earth-sciences, astronomy on the topics of super-nova and gamma-ray bursts. I’m a reader really, just interested that’s all, not a student.
We, my wife, myself, and my grown up children, live in Canada, with one exception, a daughter living in England, the country of my own birth.
I have written elsewhere, articles on:
Terrestrial Volcanoes, Terrestrial Impact Craters, The Sun, Questioning the Cause of Dinosaur Extinctions, William Shakespeare, The Genius of Gutenberg, The Stock Market, etc., etc.
I also have a Blog-site and a web site on the subject of diabetes, information for diabetics, of which I am one, a type 2 for 20 years now. I am not a health care professional and my comments conform to mainstream diabetes treatment and procedures. I just state them from the viewpoint of a patient, so it’s a diabetic writing for fellow diabetics about matters faced by us all in our daily struggle to gain control of glucose levels and manage the diabetic condition.
With a blog-site I write about the history, culture, personalities, and connections with art and literature, as a challenging exercise to learn something new but with, in some ways, an affection for the former civilizations and history of the Middle East.
That is even though I spent almost a year in Egypt in less than comfortable conditions as a member of the British Armed Forces when Great Britain still controlled the Suez Canal.
It was not like being Lawrence of Arabia I must add, considering my duties as a lowly sapper in the Royal engineers. But the sands were the same.
