This site.....

 

For Jacob and Noah......

In producing this site I am looking to leave something of me behind - perhaps for my children to cast an eye over when I am long gone or for my distant relatives to know a little more about their family histrory long after my ashes have been scattered across the Trossachs. This little piece of the world wide web is my 'something' and offersm a small window into my journey through life....my existenz....


So far I have sought to include the following sections within this site - yet they are section which are likely to remain 'works in progress' given the demands of life away from website construction - time is of course the issue....

The Care System: An account/collection of my experiences and thoughts growing up in the state caresystem - a period of time in which the state took on the parental role....

Family Values: A frank, stark, honest yet sometimes disturbing look at my (unconventional) family and relationships/friendships....

Education, Training & Employment: Elements of my schooling/journey through the education system - through into FE college and eventually Higher Education. This section then charts my progression through the world of employment, and the development of my career....

Academia: The essays/studies/notes/work completed through my academic years. Primarily subject areas of - Psychology, Sociology, Geography and Criminology.

The National Probation Service: Work completed within the two years of training, largely through NVQ and BA Hons in Community Justice. Further works reflect periods of a Newly Qualified, Fully Qualified Probation Officer and life as a Senior Probation Officer. This will also reflect the changes within the Service. (2003 onwards), including the 'Transforming Rehabilitation' agenda which essentially dismantled the Probation Service........

Horror: A disturbing interest of mine - horor movies from the 1960s onwards - reviews, plots, trailers and an array of information - and still I search for that movie that unsettles and unerves me more than the last one!!

Existenz: Ever since childhood I have been fascinated with space - the planets, the solar system and the universe - whether thats in the form of movies, radio shows or through Physics and Astronomy I have always pursued this as an interest......

Old Time Radio: An old, yet personal interest of mine which incorporates 1940s/50s/60s sci-fi, horror and crime radio shows. Different or niche - maybe - I just stumbled across these shows within my childhood and have been hooked ever since......

Cult Classics : A section that reviews some of the best cult movies I have seen, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers....

War Zone: A section that reviews some of the best war movies I have seen, as well as providing scripts, quotes and trailers....

Paleontology: This section encompasses my interest in dinosaurs (again) as a youngster....actually who am I kidding - I still love dinosaurs now.....in another life I would have been a Paleontologist I am sure....my dream job!

X: This area of the site is devoted primarily to the mysterious, those unanswered questions and mysteries we all contemplate - form kme this inevitably began with the X-Files in the 1990s - a fantastic show that opened your mind and led you to ponder that little bit more......

Miscellaneous: Childhood nostalgia, other interests, pets, the 1990s,  animated GIFS and anything else that doesn't fall into the other categories.

Memento Mori: We are all mortal and as we all pass from this life I am sure we would all like to be remembered - whilst there are memories this section provides a little more - a real insight into my family life through photo albums.....
