About me and what makes me tick? - helping people anyway I can!
I enjoy sharing my space on this planet with Info Barrel. My main interests are travel, food, gardening, natural health, art, inventions and design. I try to illustrate articles with my own pictures and this adds to the enjoyment of creating fresh material.
 I run a Q & A help service from our website for people wishing to help themselves to health. www.naturefresh.co.za  We also have a Facebook page .  I am the author of a full colour illustrated guide called: Heathy Happy Eating for all Blood Types.  Wherever there is there is a problem that needs a simple solution I try to find it!
