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.

S is for Something-else!

I'm having a lazy week and this is supposed to be a post on Clifford and Guiterman-branded fire engines, but I haven't even sorted the images out, let alone got the text done (I was sorting the letter i's for the A-Z; 270+ and counting!), so here's something I picked-up in a discount store this week.

99p novelty from Tobar, isn't it fun! They come in blue as well! Nominally 54mm, you can make him 120mm - temporarily! Practical too - good for getting spiders in the top corners of a room!Contemporary; probably easier to find in Hawkin's Bazaar than a random high-street store (I was just lucky). That's it, the pictures say the rest; go, buy, have fun!
