I don’t write this blog for an audience, primarily. It’s mainly an online version of what I might write in a memoir. However I enjoy sharing stories with people and love engaging in conversations, and as such, am aware that this blog is accessible to all. As a result I write remaining mindful of personal and shared privacies and personal space; and therefore I do try and avoid being too specific about names, places and so on.

All views expressed are my own, (unless otherwise stated); and memories referenced are from my own memory.  Therefore, they *may* be factually incorrect and/or differ from memories of others who may have been present.

Pictures used in posts are not used for personal financial gain.  Many are photographs I have taken myself; others I have sourced from the open internet.

No offence to anyone is meant here.
