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.

H is for Have a Happy Christmas

Everyone has a favourite tree decoration...

Mine are Pine Cones, old; to the left and glass - modern; bottom right and blow moulded polyethylene.

Painted cones would have been among the first true decorations, along with sweets, nuts & fruits and the odd small carved wooden trinket or straw dolls/craft pieces

Have a lovely Christmas and best wishes for a better year in 2012 whatever your 2011 has been like!
