About Me

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 . . . F is for Free Toy Soldiers!

Dunklin County Libraries (Missouri) are giving away free toy soldiers on Veteran Day if you drop by, the links are problematical (I had to view the 'cashed' version, and as a 'text-only') so if anyone 'over there' can get a better link please do and chuck it in the comments.

As the Dunklin County Library kicks off celebrating Veterans Day, stop by any library in Dunklin County and pick up a toy soldier as a reminder of the men and women serving our country. Also, each location will honor veterans with a special display inviting county patrons to bring in a framed 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 photograph of a veteran. The Dunklin County Library in Kennett will feature a salute to veterans during the month of November with displays of pictures, memorabilia, uniforms, and other veteran related items. Harold G. Walker will be at the Kennett location on Monday, November 4, 2018, from 4 pm to 6 pm, to sign his latest book release entitled, The Grotto. This book commemorates his time as a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam war and the camaraderie among fellow soldiers during this tense period.
 
They're probably cheapish rack-toy figures but support the thing anyway!
