We might pride ourselves, we're so avant-garde but we're neoclassicists, I guess, at heart. Patronize all you like, we all like beer (brewing and drinking), holidays, diets, hugging trees, kiting, fishing, ironing, hiking, geocaching, wherigoing, painting (oils, emulsion and gloss), ranting, recording history as I see it. Days with family, friends. Always an opinion (always wrong); rarely a dull moment. Welcome to my world. Remember history is written by those who make the effort to write it.
