Meet the Author

I am an accountant with a sense of humour, which most people consider a contradiction. I live in the UK on the Wirral with my wife and two bitches. That's a Border Terrier and a Cockapoo, in case you're thinking I'm living the life of an African tribe leader who believes he's a gangsta rapper. I have three grown up children but have never quite managed to grow up myself.


At the age of eighteen, I was often mistaken for pop idol, Donny Osmond. Nearly four decades on and ravaged by time, the best I can now do in the look-a-like stakes is Richard Osman from BBC TV's Pointless. Osmond to Osman, how the mighty fall.

    Disjointed

    Occasional bits of humor but overall very disjointed and not particularly funny as a whole. Might appeal to the very snarky though. Just didn't appeal to me.

    Mostlly British

    Very much a nostalgia look at those must have items from 70s on up. But as the author points out, it is based on things from the UK, so others may have a harder time relating.
