This site.....


For Jacob and Noah......

In producing this site I am looking to leave something of me behind - perhaps for my children to cast an eye over when I am long gone or for my relatives to know a little more about me long after my ashes have been scattered across the Trossachs. This little piece of the world wide web aloows me to leave this 'something' and to some extent reflects part of my passage through life.

So far I have sought to include the following sections - and like many great artistes (delusions of grandeur I sense) it is a piece of work I will leave behine which most likely always will - remain unfinished.....

The Care System: An account/collection of my experiences and thoughts growing up in the care system - a time in which the state took on the parental role.....

Family Values: A frank, stark, honest yet sometimes disturbing look at my (unconventional) family and relationships/friendships....

Education, Training & Employment: Elements of my schooling/journey through the education system - through into college and eventually University. This section then charts my progression through the world of employment.....

Academia: The essays/studies/notes/work completed through my academic years. Primarily subject areas of - Psychology, Sociology, Geography and Criminology.

The Probation Service: Work completed within the two years of training, largely through NVQ and BA Hons in Community Justice. Further works reflect periods of a Newly Qualified, Fully Qualified Probation Officer and life as a Senior Probation Officer. This will also reflect the changes within the Service. (2003 onwards), including the 'Transforming Rehabilitation' shambles......'

Horror: A reflection simply of a long term interest of mine. It offers a comprehensive review and character assessments of a variety of horror movies/icons from the 1970s onwards.....

Existenz: I   have this fascination with space, with the universe and science - well perhaps more so Physics. Humanity has pondered for so long the very essence of our being - and in my lifestime we will not find any answers I am sure.  The sense of wonder however remains.......

Old Time Radio: An old, yet personal interest of mine which incorporates 1940s/50s/60s sci-fi, horror and crime radio shows. Bizarre I know - I just stumbled across these shows in childhood and have been hooked ever since......

Cult Classics : An area that reviews some of the best cult movies of my era, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers....

Paleontology: This section encompasses my interest in dinosaurs as a youngster....actually who am I kidding - I still love dinosaurs now.....in another life I would have been a Paleontologist I am sure....my dream job!

X: This area of the site is devoted primarily to the mysterious, those unanswered questions I alluded to within the Existenz section perhaps - with this section perhaps fuelled by my devotion to the X-Files in the 1990s!

Miscellaneous: Childhood nostalgia, free animated GIFS and anything else that doesn't fall into the other categories.
