Introduction
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne UK close to the quayside. Moved here from Durham after I retired to be closer to my family. I enjoy exploring www to learn new things, although mymemory and attention span are not good, I still manage - by setting up bookmarks and reminders. Dear old Goog is my memory now.

Interests 
    • Tech 
    • Science fiction and Fantasy 
    • Social networking - especially G+ It's the best place to meet
      new friends
    • Music - very eclectic taste - Anything apart from Rap and
      Jazz (even the odd track from these genres is ok)
Bragging rights
As child I was chased by the cops. Got a warning for speeding, I was riding a bicycle :)

Always loved it too.  I think I have two different recordings of it.  One that has 'Coka cola' and one that has 'cherry cola'.  Absolutely love the Kinks.
