About Me

My photo
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.

W is for What'EV'er!

Yep! I'm being lazy, it's hot, it's humid, web-traffic's down for the holiday season and I'm just struggling to find my mojo! You nearly got more edibles (from New York), you nearly got a news-views, you nearly got WHW stuff, but instead a bit of eye candy that needs little blurb!

With those long ribbons they are technically tournament knights, so the fact they have the same crest is fine - Knight practising with his bearer prior to 'his turn' at the tilt! Probably should have a leather sponge-pad on the tip of that pole-arm; ouch!

Britains Swoppet Knights - box ticked!

The next day...
