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.

A is for America's Struggle for Independence

Not one of my more alliterative or humorous titles...

Although carrying no less than three copyrights, I can't see how a long defunct toy company might still lay want to lay-claim to a pamphlet that was given away as part of a commercial premium anyway, but in the event that a surviving rump of Innovative Production Inc., would like this removed, let me know.

Otherwise I offer it up as a historical curiosity for reference purposes. And it is very interesting; slightly jingoistic - as you'd expect - but fascinating none the less and a nice little 'primer' for anyone not familiar with the details of the conflict.
