I wish the buck stopped here as I could use a few!
When someone asks you a question you'd rather not answer, smile and say "Why do you want to know?"
The epitaph on Spike Milligan's gravestone reads: "I told you I was ill"
If you're just here for a quick browse and only want to see what it's all about you'll most likely want to head straight over to Kiddies Korner for the Gamez, and that's just fine because you'll certainly be coming back again if I simply tell you that that is the boring part of the site!
Originally I built this website because I hoped to leave some trace of myself in the corporeal world - other than just unpaid bills. (That is, for as long as the hosting gets paid or maybe The Devil issues credit cards!). It took a decade of designing other people's websites before I got around to even booking my own name as a domain (something everyone should do, of course, providing it's still available). Some darned realtor (oops, sorry, ' Namesake'!) in Brentwood went and nobbled the "dot-co dot-uk" version of my name while I slumbered, but he was nice enough to leave the "dot-com" option there, which was the only one I really wanted anyway! And since he now has a flashy "Macromedia Flash" gateway page I can only assume he is paying to stay at the top of the search engines (coz search engines can't see inside Flash coding, Keith!)
And now that I have retired to Spain this site is a 'reverse engineering' of a life not short on pain and glory (except I've left out the pain & glory bits to leave more room for the funnier stuff). Like all websites, it will suffer from constant change - updates, new pages, dropped links(!) and the rest. Who knows, you yourself may even appear amongst these pages (Don't sue me! - my lawyer has instructions to administer the euthanasia should adversity rear its ugly head).
The page links to the top left will route you to the musings and ramblings of one whose life has been impacted by far too much travelling and inadequate rooting - a veritable Rolling Stone who gathered very little moss along the way! [How do brambles manage to travel so extensively and yet root so successfully?]
Finally, there are also lots of hidden links lurking under text and buttons throughout the site - I hope you get to find them all!
Thank you for your visit!

I adopted this little cutie as my logo many years ago when I found his image on one of those rubber stamp thingies at Quincy Market, Boston, Mass. I use the little critter on the inside cover of most of my books (image below).
