WHY WHO and WHERE
Having tried to
use commercial blog sites way back in 2006/7 with such limited success that I have
abandoned them, I am building this one privately, just for the
satisfaction of building a site using HTML rather than fancy
website-building programmes. This means that there is no close
link to all the myriad of world-wide blogs, but this is of no
consequence as far as I am concerned.
Born and bred in Essex, I spent the first six years of my
working life in the Merchant Navy. When I met the Geordie
I later married, I decided that marriage and the M.N. wouldn't
mix, so came ashore, did teacher training and after 27 years
retired in 1994. We have lived in a Northumberland village for
the last 49 years.
And very nice it is, too!
