About me

Gender MALE
Location Birmingham, Midlands, United Kingdom
Introduction What's to tell about me? I'm a retired old retread, who likes to write, paint and work with wood. I play some Jazz Guitar and I mess about with PC's (That is build and maintain them, because mine keeps blowing a gasket.) I enjoy a full life, so you can't always count on finding me here. I might be doing any of the above, but not necessarily at the same time!
Interests Writing, painting landscapes, jazz-guitar, woodwork..
Favorite Movies Who gets time to watch movies? Well, okay I admit to 'Shawshank Redemption', 'The Green Mile', 'Where Eagles Dare' and maybe 'Casablanca'. Isn't that in Washington DC?
Favorite Music If it's music I'll listen to it. If it's just a noise, I'll respect the rights of others to listen to it - just so long as they don't call me un-cool for not liking it .
Favorite Books The list is long, so I will just say, any novel with pace, action, living characters, a story-line and hard-covers. (I do buy woodwork books like they are going out of fashion.)Favourite authors. Alphabetically: Desmond Bagley, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Bernard Cornwell, Graham Greene, Hammond Innes, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, John D MacDonald, Ross MacDonald, Alistair MacLean, Neville Shute, Donald Westlake. And a good many more!

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

Nope! Spoons are just forks that escaped the stamping machine.
