About me

Gender MALE
Location Suffolk, United Kingdom
Introduction Born and bred in Gibraltar, I served in the Royal Navy for a number of years then settled in the UK, raising three lovely girls who have now produced seven grandchildren between them to date. I've travelled and worked across the world and maintain close contact, including regular visits, with Gibraltar. In 2003, shortly after returning to the UK after living in Gibraltar and surrounding area for about six years, I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). I also have to deal with a serious case of progressive glaucoma, which the doctors tell me will make me blind within my lifetime. In the meantime... I entertain myself and enjoy keeping the little grey cells active by writing this blog. I hope you are amused, informed or otherwise entertained during your visit... thanks for reading!
Interests Music, Reading, Internet, Art, Poker, Chess, Gluttony, Debauchery and Sloth... not necessarily in that order!

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

Don't be so bloody daft! Hmmm... Actually, thinking about it a little more... it is possible that forks evolved from spoons... yes! I used to be indecisive... now... I'm not so sure!! :@:@
