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.

P is for Pedalo

Perfect for Christmas, although like the previous five, I uploaded it to edit in February! But it's a nice novelty item that gets us into the spirit of . . . I'm about to start talking mawkishly sentimental bollocks aren't I? Lets just get on with it . . .

Kleeware swan for the local municipal pond's pedalo-hire with children possibly bought-in from Thomas, but they don't really fit, so that may be bollocks too!

 That's it! A Kleeware swan with Thomas Toys brats, what more do you need, the machine-operator's name? Mike probably, or Mick . . . Fred maybe?
