Gandalf (Still Redundant!)

If this works OK,this will be my intro.

I am a chap, just approaching 50 years old (but not quite!)
I live in Preston, Lancashire, UK and have done so all my life, apart from the twelve years when I wore a blue suit (NO, not Prison blue, but the blue of the Royal Air Force!!!!)

During that time, I was posted (sent sideways) around the UK a number of times, and these postings affected my life in different ways.

When I was posted to the Shetland Isles, I developed an interest in birdlife - not many people can successfully claim to have seen a Black Browed Albatross north of the equator - I can!!
**Update** Damn, damn, damn.................A sub-adult Black Browed spotted off Channel Isles (August Birdwatching) in June 2000.

When in London (West Drayton) I learned to appreciate Sci-Fi, thanks to a wonderful bookshop (now unfortunately closed) called 'Dark they were and Golden Eyed'

In Norfolk (Coltishall) I learned to appreciate the finer qualities of Real Ale (Hic)

Now I am civilian again, I have mellowed, and prefer to read to the accompianament(??) of a glass or three of Islay Malt Whisky, preferably the Ardbeg.

So, that is me. You will find I have varied interests and will comment on almost anything.
Like Gandalf, I will poke my nose into anyones business!!!!!!
