I am a father of two great kids, Tammy (my daughter and youngest) and Calum (my son). They often drive me up the wall but I could never wish for better children. Both now grown and out working which makes me feel proud of them.
I was born and bred in Scotland, I was raise by my aunt who sadly has now passed away. My childhood was in the most part a learning experience in school and out.
My adult life has seen great periods of unemployment interspersed with soul destroying jobs working in factories. The one job I enjoyed was working at a local theme park.
I am married, as mention above, with two kids Calum and Tammy. My son sadly takes his imagination from me. His sister though is more like her mother both in looks and temperament, so don’t g

The nightmare of computers, it drives us mad. It isn't like they can tell you what is wrong. Often you think it is one thing and then find it is something else. And then there is the times it seems to fix itself. Those are the worst as you know they will be back. That sounds like a bad line from a good movie, hehehe. Sorry couldn't help that.

Gordon Bailey I have started to write my first book about my life, and would appreciate if you would take the time to have a quick look at the start and see if it has a chance of going forward.

Thank you.

Monique A lot of those early sci-fi writers foretold today, including Isaac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke. Now Hollywood filmmakers seem to be at it.

Monique Thanks for the invite. That's a great book you're reading. My favourite of his was The Illustrated Man. I noticed you're on the west coast of Scotland. I used to spend a lot of time around Torridon.

Victoria Roder HiBilly,
Thanks for the recommendation for Stephen King's The Stand. It has been so many years since I read it. I always list it as my favorite book, I'll have to check out this version.

message 11: by Kate

Kate Gould You just have to give her a little time to build up some trust. You could lure her out of wherever she's hiding with a little sweet treat then pick her up. She probably just needs to get used to being handled. It took my two a while because they came from a pet shop and had hardly been handled.

message 10: by Kate

Kate Gould Hi Billy, yes I'm a great rat fan. My two were very shy when I first got them and it took a few weeks for them to even come out of their cage for a proper exploration of their new home, but now they're cheeky little madams who scoot around wherever they please.
