I kept a family blog for almost ten years, which I enjoyed immensely. Since closing it, I have been looking for another theme, but whilst I have many interests, I have few things about which I can write with any great authority.  I have decided to make this a general interest, covering topics that attract my attention, reviewing books or movies, or describing various project.

As a child, I loved pottering in the shed, listening to the radio, relaxing, achieving very little whilst thinking big. I still hope to have a shed of my own when I grow up.  A close friend of mine died too young. He loved his shed to and we both loved conversing for hours at a time. So, in some ways this will be my tribute to him.
