I've been a follower of The Guide from radio days, through TV days, then in print, and now at H2G2.

I tend to hitch-hike around the planet in a mixture of short visits (lots of them) and long-term moves that have a Ford Prefect-like interval of 10 to 15 years between "lifts".

At the end of January 2003, after a 17-year stay, I left Perth, Western Australia, (see Perth W.A. ) which has a great climate, but a time zone that kept me out of sync with most places on the planet. Mary and I took the next "lift" and moved to the UK. We are now in WIltshire, thoroughly enjoying life, the universe and everything.

A few other favourite places on Sol 3 are: Southwold, Suffolk, U.K. , Englands Lane (before they pulled half the shops down) in Belsize Park, Hampstead , London , also Prague (especially during the Prague Spring) and a village near Brussels called Zaventem

My interests include:
  • visiting new places and enjoying being at home,

  • maintaining alcohol levels and sober reflection,

  • real life and the Internet,

  • science facts and science fiction,

  • Lego and individuality,

  • birdwatching and cats,

  • stimulating conversation and the comfortable silence between friends,

  • logically consistent paradoxes (as you might have guessed)

  • and music.

Musicians Guild Member I am a MuG - a member of the h2g2 Musicians Guild, which is a virtual club for musicians, singers, composers, and other music afficionados at h2g2. I play piano (mainly classical, but also pop), compose, and sing tenor (very badly) when there is safety in the numbers of a large choir. I also work on some music projects in the h2g2 University, two of which are complete, and published as part of the Guide. I'm very pleased with them (but then I might be biased) take a look at them, please. One of them is French Music 1870 - 1945 ; the other is Baroque Music.

The Lost Poetry Office will take great care of your favourite poems. Would you like to dedicate a poem to someone? Leave a message at the Office ... or just go there and read some of the dedications and poems - go on - it makes a pleasant break.

Do drop in for a chat. Otherwise I can be found at odd hours in this bar and\or the Crossed Purposes Pub and\or Cabin 13 - The Lighthouse Bar - usually in the current round.
