Background[edit]

(in no particular order): Physicist, bureaucrat (ex), website designer, author (books on Macromedia Fireworks and Dreamweaver), fern botanist (type 'Ferns Canberra' into Google and you'll find my rather elderly fern website), photographer, astronomy teacher, classical music enthusiast (no formal music education but I am exploring string quartets and lieder - as a listener), record collector (78s and LPs), golfer of no evident talent, golf antiques collector, stock market dabbler, appreciater of single malt Scotch whiskies, and many other things I can't think of right now.

Location[edit]

Canberra, Australia, but thinking of moving to the benign climate of Buderim, Queensland, Australia
