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.

G is for Guns, Proper Guns!

The first is from Basing House and - I'm pleased to report - is pointing directly at the centre of Basingrad! Sadly it's probably out of range for the era, but one lives in hope! The police station, magistrate's courts, council offices and job centre are pretty much in a straight line away in the distance . . . with 'Macky-D's' between!

This one (below) is in a park in Maidenhead and probably has a history but I don't recall it now?

Seems to have been lost in the ground or water for some time; the outer surface is much pitted. Still - a nice little thing!
