About Me

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.

S is for Sponge Bricks

Or; Brick Sponges? Ever had a mate throw a piece of sponge at you which you thought was a piece of concrete or a brick? Well, the sponge which looks like concrete doesn't seem to be around any more, it was used in play-pen mattresses when I was young, but I have found several bricks over the years!

The bright pink one had the Sun newspaper's logo down the side and was given away by them for some reason years ago, it started this rather small collection of - usually - Christmas novelties!
