Originally from Lancashire I now work for the Scottish Government. Like to travel, walk the hills, and spend time with my now grown up kids, I read lots from Patrick O'Brien, thru Christopher Hitchins to sci fi or historical stuff. I love a good conversation on politics, history, birdwatching, rugby, football (soccer), movies and nice places to retire :-) Enjoy conversing with all nationalities and enjoy good food and drink!! :-). The pic of me with the stone is on the Isle of Lewis on the outer (URL HIDDEN) the Callanish Stones..(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) it amazing place. Cheers!
