Good afternoon, good evening and good night!

Hi , you've stumbled across my hootoo house. Pull up a chair and your drink of choice. I'm Rockhound: Geologist (after a few years as Geotechnical Engineer), smiley - lurk-er, Kung fu-Alto, TOG, Cheesehead 1 and occasional sword-swinger 2

What do I like? Science (though for obvious reasons I'm biased towards the earth sciences), science fiction, humour (Eddie Izzard, Dave Gorman), architecture, Drambuie, choral singing, kung-fu, musicals, rock music, the Prodigy and computer games.

I've been lurking around these parts for a few years now, an ex-scout with a few entries that made it through PR and into the edited guide. I'll even occasionally dabble in a 'create' project now and again.

Being a tad busy at the mo' my list of edited guide entries isn't as impressive as some researchers. At the moment it stands at:

Edited Guide Entries

Tetbury Woolsack Day, Stonehenge - collaborative entry, The Heidi Game, University of Portsmouth, Gloucestershire, UK, Japanese History and Culture - collaborative entry, Japan for the Visitor - collaborative entry, Contemporary Japan - collaborative entry, Tycho Brahe - Astronomer - flea market rescue/collaborative entry, How to build a house from coal

Why not have a look at Peer Review and see what researchers have submitted at the moment.
Apparently my hootoo identity, plus being an engineer, martial artist and lover of a) team sports with oval balls and crunching tackles (not just the NFL) and b) sharp pointy steel weapons, suggests I'm male. Non, je suis une femme! ;)

and remember...
"Share and Enjoy"

1no, not as rude as it sounds, I'm a fan of the legendary Green Bay Packers NFL team.2I used to do fencing, am learning a broadsword form at kung fu, and love swords of most types, ages and backgrounds.
