This site.....

 

For Jacob and Noah......

The idea for this website originally formed way back in 2003, taking on its structure from 2007 through the WYSIWYG NAMO platform. Enabling the site to grow and evolve has been difficult - time being the greatest issue - but I add to it as and when I can - if I make it to retirement I will have plenty of time to work on it then....

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. This little piece of the world wide web is my 'something' and offers a small window into my journey through life....my existenz....

 


So far I have sought to include the following sections within this site - yet they are section which are likely to remain 'works in progress' given the demands of life away from website construction.....

The Care System: An account/collection of my experiences and thoughts growing up in the state caresystem - a period of time in which the state took on the parental role....(Complete)

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

Education, Training & Employment: Elements of my schooling/journey through the education system - through into FE college and eventually Higher Education. This section then charts my progression through the world of employment, and the development of my career....(Complete)

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

The National 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' agenda which essentially dismantled the Probation Service........(Under Construction)

Horror: A disturbing interest of mine - horor movies from the 1960's onwards - reviews, plots, trailers and an array of information - and still I search for that movie that unsettles and unnerves me more than the last one!! (Under Construction)

Existenz: Ever since childhood I have been fascinated with space - the planets, the solar system and the universe - whether that's in the form of movies, radio shows or through Physics and Astronomy I have always pursued this as an interest......(Under Construction)

Old Time Radio: An old, yet personal interest of mine which incorporates 1940's/50's/60's sci-fi, horror and crime radio shows. Different or niche - maybe - I just stumbled across these shows within my childhood and have been hooked ever since......(Under Construction)

Cult Classics : A section that reviews some of the best cult movies I have seen, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers.....(Complete)

War Zone: A section that reviews some of the best war movies I have seen, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers....(Under Construction)

Paleontology: This section encompasses my interest in dinosaurs (again) 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! (Under Construction)

X: This area of the site is devoted primarily to the mysterious, those unanswered questions and mysteries we all contemplate - for me this inevitably began with the X-Files in the 1990's - a fantastic show that opened your mind and led you to ponder that little bit more......(Under Construction)

Miscellaneous: Childhood nostalgia, other interests, pets, the 1990's,  animated GIF'S and anything else that doesn't fall into the other categories. .(Complete)

Memento Mori: We are all mortal and as we all pass from this life I am sure we would all like to be remembered - whilst there are memories this section provides a little more - a real insight into my family life through photo albums.....Noah/Jacob/Marie - remember your full name and my full universal password.....(Under Construction)
