About this website

The main purpose of the website is so people can find out about me and my interests. I hope that someone searching for one of my interests will find it and it act as publicity for that interest, I also hope that someone looking up one interest might discover another one.

I'd long thought of having a personal website but didn't know how to go about it. Fortunately my daughter married an internet expert who helped me. He is Karl Binder MD of "The Adhere Creative"

The website was started at the beginning of 2005 but wasn't launched until the end of that year.

In the autumn of 2007 the server being paid to host my (and many other) website had a major crash. Unfortunately Karl then discovered that they hadn't been doing proper back-ups. Karl's company got paid for helping them sort out the mess but it took a long time before he could recover the data from hobby sites like mine.

The website was back online by the spring of 2008 but it wasn't until late summer that I got round to getting to grips of the new software and arranging the content.
