English, born in Catford, London England, made some money c/- Maggie Thatcher and a property surge, left the UK at the beginning of the poll tax fiasco and came to New Zealand in 1988, the year of Cyclone Bola, never left.
I was told that it never rained here! But it was love and I didn’t think to check.
Living the dream then – Married with 2 children and a cat that scares itself.
Takes bad pictures with one of two cameras, like gadgets but baulks at paying the early adopter price.
I have in my collection of gadgets a mini-disc player, the major downfall of which was that you had to record information to the disk and not just drag drop and copy, so that a one hour mini-disc recording took one hour.
I do have two I-pod touch devices at home one by the bed one in the kitchen, and an iPod mini in the car. I also have an iPad and a Macbook Air. I need counselling.
The MacBook Air is purely because it’s a work of art, and I only use it for writing this blog, badly.
I don’t usually frown when drinking beer, this one made me a bit less than happy, but as you can see I can do all the emotions.
