About Me

My photo
No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

More Wildlife

More wildlife encountered out and about in West Berkshire in the last couple of weeks;

Top left is a busy Bumble Bee, to the right is a caterpillar covered in parasitic beetles of some sort, I have to say I killed the beetles, which was probably not the right thing to do, but I felt I'd rather have another butterfly in the garden!

Bottom left is a moth of unknown name and an 'instar' of immature grasshopper shedding his skin by literally wriggling out of it!

Large White Butterfly who wouldn't open for me, but like the Orange Tip the other day is almost nicer to look at closed!
