|No longer so newish to h2g2 but still a devotee of the true Guide from the original radio series from 19?? . I'm still trying to understand Life, The Universe and Everything, currently from the perspective of an expatriot Mancunian in South Carolina. This is very difficult. Help.|
At least some enlightenment:
Some Real Stuff
My name is
I was born in Manchester, England many years ago but now I am living in Charleston, South Carolina. I got here by way of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and brief periods in France and Germany. It's a long walk but I needed the exercise- Ta-Dahh!!|
I am the Technology Manager for a medical device company (of which I may or may not write later).
|Outside of my work, in which I do have a real interest, I like:|
|As you can see, pretty much an all-round geek including the glasses and the sandals. (No socks, but I do play the banjo.) This great Article may help with the sandals and socks bit.|

My Pet Sheep Eric (son of Harold)
|City Gent||But why do they think they're birds?|
|Rustic||Another fair question. One thing is for sure; a sheep is not a creature of the air. It has enormous difficulty in the comparatively simple act of perching. As you see. As for flight, its body is totally unadapted to the problems of aviation. Trouble is, sheep are very dim. And once they get an idea into their heads there's no shifting it.|
|City Gent||But where did they get the idea from?|
|Rustic||From Harold. He's that sheep over there under the elm. He's that most dangerous of animals - a clever sheep. He's the ring-leader. He has realized that a sheep's life consists of standing around for a few months and then being eaten. And that's a depressing prospect for an ambitious sheep. He's patently hit on the idea of escape.|
|City Gent||But why don't you just get rid of Harold?|
|Rustic||Because of the enormous commercial possibilities should he succeed.|

Work(s) in Progress and Articles
I'm currently working on something with Shakespeare's sonnets and I'll put a link in when its good enough.
Recently picked up an article on South Carolina from Flea Market and I'll try to polish it up a bit.
Driving in South Carolina. This gripe has been elevated(?) to Article status.
Many of my American friends have expressed a total lack of understanding of the game of Cricket and I realize that it is because we British have failed to explain the game adequately. I'm sorry, and I hope that this article may go some way towards rectifying the shortcoming. This is the unedited version. The editied version is here. This Article in Preparation about natural latex allergy is a spin-off from my working life. I spent much of my early life in Northern Cumbria (it was still just Cumberland then) as my father worked on the Blue Streak project. I recently got an urge to write about the area and this is the result.
