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.

News, Views Etc . . . Houskeeping

I've sorted out Tuesdays post! Added a new table-image and a product listing which will hopefully make everything clearer? I'll add a product list to today's list in a minute and there's Artillery going up for tomorrow.

Also over the last few weeks I've added a few links to the 'Paper & Card' section (down the left hand column) including Paper Buildings and Paper Shipwright, so worth a visit if you're killing time - like any of us have time to kill, but hey!

Couple of links;

We had something similar a year or two ago, might be the same thing?

This is just for fun!

And the ongoing saga that is Hornby Plc took a turn the day before yesterday when the management at Hornby recommended share-holders turn down the takeover offer as 'underpricing the group'. Probably true when you consider they have four of the worlds best recognised brands under the one roof - even if most of it is manufactured by Kader in Thailand, or some piss-poor, poverty-wage economy like that!
