About Me

I spent a longish time in the (British) Army when I was younger and have been a Civil Servant ever since - far longer than I care to remember.

I've got stacks of interests; I'm really too busy to be still working for a living but since I like eating regularly, it seems I am stuck with it.

Things that particularly interest me:

1. Bluegrass music - I've heard all of the of the first and second generation players and met a few of them; I've managed to get to Nashville twice since 1999. My favourite bands are Alison Krauss & Union Station and the Del McCoury Band.

2.Barbershop Choruses - I've yet to hear a decent recording; for some reason, the music industry doesn't seem to take it seriously.

3. Pretty well any Mozart.

3. Reading - Anything from cosmology to the labels on sauce bottles. Favourite fiction writer is Terry Pratchett (bang goes my street cred) and for non-fiction, Bill Bryson (ditto).

I've also practised Chinese Boxing for a lot of years, particularly the Internal Art Pa Kua (or Ba Gua, as they write nowadays).

That is quite enough about me, I think - greetings to you all.
