About me

Gender MALE
Location The Garden of England, United Kingdom
Introduction Apparently I'm a grumpy old man who spends too much time on the computer, reading, watching football -especially West Ham United- and painting 'toy' soldiers.(Pearls of Wisdom from the other half). P.S. Photo of moi was taken by the OH at El Jem, an incredibly atmospheric, ruined Roman amphitheatre in Tunisia.
Interests Reading, writing, wargaming, military history and proper football.
Favorite Movies Zulu, Waterloo, Bridge too Far, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Catch 22, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Men in Tights, Monty Python quincology(?), Aliens (all of them), With Fire and Sword
Favorite Music Most types from English Folk, through Classical (Beethoven is the dogs), Rock & Roll, 60's-90's, Bowie, OMD, Kraftwerk, Heavy Metal (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Nazareth etc), some dance but not Trad Jazz, Blues or C&W.
Favorite Books Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, Forever War by Joe Haldeman, The Shining and Salem's Lot by Stephen King. Generally a good Science Fiction, Fantasy or Horror book or even an occasional stuffy book on military history.
