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.

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!

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!
