I'll start off -

MD of group of local magazines

Chairman Warrington Town FC

Interested in wide varity of sports including Rugby League, football, tennis.

Other hobbies include photography,cinema and walks in the countryside.

Love travelling and wish I had more time  to do it.

Also for some bizarre reason interested in politics.

I was going to but I kept getting the giggles and couldn't think what to put as it kept reminding me of one of those internet dating and love match sites that keep getting advertised on the TV.

 

Here I go again....giggles have set in once more... sorry  :oops:  :lol:

Having been on this forum forever, most here have already met me in person so will probably know all this but here goes.

 

Born in Warrington 1952 (baby boomer apparently)

Grew up in Orford / Woolston but now live in Paddington 

Married with two kids and four very young grandchildren

Trained as mechanical engineer then changed to electronics and radio communications.

Still working as MD in own business for 24 years

Enjoy social chat (that’s why I’m here) and the occasional beer.

Eighty, but almost juvenile in my head.  March to a different drummer to most people. Tall, dark and handsome - a gypsy once told me, but I wish I hadn't gone to spec-savers.  Ex magician; police inspector; 2 years in Korea; 3 years at Joe soaps.  

 

Now keen gardener; golfer and some magic;  Always wanted to be poet and now I are one. Two grown up boys, which also makes me a banker.

To a fault, I always try and see the other persons point of view.

 

Old Orford born; now Grappenhall - shortly to make an up or down move..

 

Happy days
