Personal profile

I like to think that I am an affable, no nonsense `what you see is what you get' sort of a chap. I enjoy classical music and possibly getaway as a nominal Water colourist. I hold a flying license for Piper 28 single engine aircraft with night and IMC rating. I am very attached to my two 1951 and 58 MGs and enjoy the membership of MG Vintage Car Club. With diffidence I take my Royal Enfield motorcycle on carefully chosen Sunday mornings before the milkman is up! I am married to a Cardiac Anaesthetist and have a daughter reading medicine in Bristol.
