If this is your first visit to the site start by reading my introduction which contains the material that used to be on the home page. As that changes very little I decided to arrange things so the people need not read it on every visit.
If you can't wait to see what I look like, you might instead start by looking at some pictures.
Most of my interests and activities are listed on the hobbies page, where there are links to pictures and to more detailed infomation.
See MY BLOG for the most up to date acount of my day to day activities. There is usually something new there every few days.
It is a very long time since I made an substantial change to this site, so much of the material is out of date. However I recently rewrote the garden page.

The most recent addition to the site is a copy of my annual letter for 2019.
