Hello! I registered as a Wikipedian at the start of May, 2006.

I'm older than I should be, born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada some decades ago. I have lived in Holland Landing (in York Region, north of Toronto) since 1994.

I have a 28-year-old daughter who graduated with a Bachelors of Music (Classical vocal performance) from McGill University in Montreal. She previously studied through the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto) and performed in Opera Atelier's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute in November/06, as one of a trio of spirits. Daddy's a wee bit proud, as you might have guessed. She taught English over in Gimje, South Korea for two years after earning her degree.

I spend a lot of my Wikipedia time on articles about places and things in York Region, Ontario watching out for vandals, disambiguating things, and adding bits where I can, particularly related to Education in Ontario. I started the articles for:

and have developed the articles for Bigwin Island, Essex County, Ontario and York Region. I try to make improvements wherever I can, including providing article assessments as well as geographic coordinates for Canadian articles.

I am proud to say that I have also had several users (or rather, mis-users) blocked from editing Wikipedia, after detecting their 'vandalistic' behaviour.

Here's a little project of interest to me: /300games. And another. And a navbox. And an article being kept for the future.

That's enough for now, methinx..................PKT

Thanks for your appreciation, PKT...my own birth-father has a page here at Wikipedia, believe it or not, just look for the name Don Earle in the English language Wikipedia, and you'll have found him - it's part of the reason I'm such a huge Boston Bruins fan !
