A man in his early 60s driving his family and friends nuts with the vagaries of my interests.
I read mainly history but tend to focus in on one country / people at a time eg. Germany; Northern Ireland/Island of Ireland; Native American People of Canada and Haida Art; Spain & Italy have been some of my wanderings. In terms of other reading; Holocaust Studies fascinates as well as depresses. Dante cheers me up with the end result being Paradiso although I guess I am going the long way there. Sports interests are balls & bikes: Carlisle United, Crystal Palace, London Irish RUFC, England RU, Harlequins RLFC etc. Cycling mainly focusses on getting fit on the road but have developed an interest in MTB trail riding but utterly novice and wanting to do more. Work wise, I am in Special Educational Needs; I teach in a Secondary Special School in London and have about 2.5years left before the big 65 then it's all about the bike!
