Who am I?

I do not really know. I was born in "Get Writing", abandoned, migrated to H2G2 and got lost again. I'm back. Phil Yabutz1 I could not log on as I was so I have been reborn with a new but very similar name.
I write, I tell stories and tell many many lies. And that's true. And I also start sentences with conjunctions.

I'm married with two adult daughters, retired, nearer 60 than 50 and used to be a civil engineer.
