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.

S is for Sword, Sabre and Scimitar

And there's a Kantana or two down the bottom right!

That's a nice collection of blades you have there. Remind me not to attempt burgling you :0)

Thanks Anne, just sorting-out bags of bits and needed to line things up and photograph them OCD-stylie!

You can burgle me if you like, I could use the insurance payout...but don't touch the toys!

Joking aside my little brother (who's bigger and more successful than me!) had a lovely collection of swords, bayonets and other sharp objects on his bedroom wall as a teenager...while I was stuck in Berlin wondering if a four-inch blade would help me stop a Hind-D???
