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.

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!
