Since having had all my personal details culled from numerous and dispirate websites around the world, and collated into one nice, neat little package, and posted on a purile and hate-filled anti-McCann website, I am now understandably cautious about posting my personal life anywhere on the internet, even on my own site!
So I will keep it simple. I am 56 years old, married, with three children and two grandchildren. I have spent most of my working life in the aviation industry, and now work for the British army as a technician on their new Apache attack helicoptor.
My hobbies include hotrodding and customising old cars, to make them look better and go faster, playing computer games, and sci-fi. I am a big ‘Star Trek’ fan, but in my opinion the best TV series, of any genre, is the remade ‘Battlestar Galactica’. Favourite films are ‘Blazing Saddles’, ‘Pearl Harbour’ and more receintly, ‘Avatar.’ Musically I am a bit of an old headbanger, liking Meatloaf, Deep Purple, Status Quo, Iron Maiden and Linkin Park, but in my collection you will also find Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top, a great many rock ‘n’ roll artists, the Monkee’s and even some Glenn Miller!
I have never been much for solving mysteries, being more of a ‘do-er’ than a ‘thinker’ and I still cannot grasp why this particular little girl has gotton so deeply under my skin!
Below is a pic of my 220bhp, Rover V8 powered 1965 Ford Zodiac, taken last summer. The paintwork was still ‘work-in-progress!’ I hope to have it more presentable this summer, when it will become my only means of transport. I don’t like modern cars! My youngest daughter is keen to follow in my footsteps, and I take her to many car shows throughout the summer, and she now helps me when working on the Zody, passing the spanners! We are currently building a 1/4 scale fully working plastic model of a Dodge Hemi V8 engine, which we are both greatly enjoying!
And THIS is what I want to build one day!!
