I am a retired computer systems manager living in Bolton, UK.
I was born in Quorn, Leicestershire (the spiritual home of foxhunting) in 1939 and educated at Derby School, Humphrey Perkins High School, Barrow-on-Soar (when they were proper grammar schools) and Birmingham University, graduating B.Sc. in Chemistry in 1960.
I am married with two grown up sons.
