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.

5 is for "On the fifth day of Chrissssstmaaas, His True Love Sent to Hiiiiiiimmm...."

We've got it; Snowman No. 5

He and Gina had a bit of a laugh about it over coffee; still - more time for a chat, as they'd got the unloading down to 12 minutes!


Another Chalkware figurine

Thank you for these holiday cake toppers. I wish I still had the plaster of paris/chalk 1.5" hight red pillar box with a red breasted Robin and snow on top. The Robin would have scaled up to the size of a Raven! It came on an iced holiday fruit cake from the Co-op about 1953.

Funny, between half-a-dozen here and more in storage I have quite a bit of chalkwear, but - although I remember it now you mention it - I don't have the robin on the pillar-box. On the subject of scale, I have somewhere a styrene robin on a fence...assuming (Erwin hates it when I assume! On my Blog!) the fence to be around the three-foot high mark, the robin scales out to about the size of a condor!
