Skills and Interests


Property Investment – Since retirement I’ve been building a passive income portfolio with my partner. The first million is still a long way off, but we are getting there.

Websites/Marketing – I specialise in affiliate marketing, improving web presence and footprint. If you need to supplement your income with multiple income streams, my advice is to join Clickbank University first.

Meteorology – The summer of 1976 got me interested in the British climate and what it capable of. Phew what a scorcher! Since then i’ve watched weather most days. The British obsession.

Astronomy – The Apollo Moon missions captured my imagination as a kid, so I bought a telescope and started lying on the sunbed in the garden. In Winter. Not a Trekkie though.

Sunderland AFC – My beloved football team. Been a long suffering fan since 1972, and it has been a LONG trip. It’s getting harder all the time, but my blood is Red and White.

Genealogy – Tracing my family tree since being taught the skills by my old boss in the early 1990’s. Not as lucky as Danny Dyer, but solid roots in Ireland.

SCADA and PLC – I spent 23 years developing control software for my employer. Very boring for a blog, so I’ll not be going there, but my skills are transferrable, including web stuff.

Photography – Since buying my first SLR (a Canon AV-1) in 1980 I’ve been a keen amateur photographer. Mostly landscapes and weather.

Gadgets and Tech – My other half tells me I have way too many gadgets. It’s true, of course. I’m an Apple fan boy and spend too much time on my iphone.

Classic Rock – I grew up in the 1970’s, with such hairy influencers as Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and Lynyrd Skynyrd. I’ll never be influenced by disco, and if a guy who can’t play an instrument calls himself a musician, I’m Out! m/ m/
