My Background

Some 72 years ago I was born only a mile or so from the River Tyne. Most of my life I have been involved in education, as a teacher of Modern Languages, Head Teacher, Chairman of the Board of a large FE College,and latterly as an Education Facilities Planning Consultant and Curriculum Analyst.
My honorary Fellowship from Northampton University was awarded for services to Education.

My Websites

I have two web presences. On this one I shall air my views on life, the universe and everything. By all means email me if you have anything to say about anything you read here.
My other web home Psapho contains some of the stories and poems I have written - the ones I still read myself.
Take your pick. You can learn what I think by visiting my thoughts page - simply click here

Tolstoy puts the matter succinctly here:-

“I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.” [Leo Tolstoy in 'What then must we do?' p16]
