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.

F is for Fleet and Crookham Historical Society - Again!

We had a quick look at their exhibition last year, well; they've done it again! Some duplicates (the Fuzzy Felt looks familiar) some new stuff, the (earlier) Bell version of the Merit stacking set is particularly interesting (a Merit gyroscope and SEL steam-engine also Randall's are both in the display as well), as are the Knex figures, which look to have some age, but had escaped me!

On show at Fleet Library (North Hampshire) for the time being, if you're local - or visiting - get down there for a proper look, if you're not, see what you can spot! Apologies for the photography - as last time, camera-flash, glass-cabinets and strip-lighting combine awkwardly!

I'll look-out for another exhibition next year!
