Adelaide city centre from the East (Mount Lofty), 2007

I'm a married male with adult children. I now live just south of the Adelaide city centre on the Glenelg tramline. I have tended to edit in the areas of:

  • Adelaide geography & history (e.g. a,b,c,d,e,etc.);
  • Australian biographies (e.g. a,b,c,d,etc.);
  • Australian companies with Adelaide origins (e.g. a,b,c,d,e,etc.);
  • Australian Orders, decorations, medals, and related;
  • disambiguation (paticularly hndis & geodis); redirects;
  • Schools; Rhodes Scholars; Lodges;
  • Assorted musicians (usually 1970s);
  • etc.

More recently, I have added the South China Sea to my domain, and nostalgically visit the pages of obscure 1970s & 1980s musicians where I correct the appalling grammar.
(And yes, my advanced age now officially qualifies me as a grumpy old man.)

My magnum opi (i.e. still incomplete) are: J150W; Oz generals (and brigadiers); Adelaide's historic houses[1] and List of maritime features in the Spratly Islands.
Pages I feel smug about, and/or have put notable effort into, include: Adelaide Steamship Company;[2] Coopers Brewery; Adelaide city centre, Adelaide Park Lands, North Terrace, Adelaide, etc.; List of Companions of the Order of Australia.
