A transplant of a transplant. Born in Northern England, moved to the south of England in early adulthood and then to the US at the age of 37 after meeting my wife on the internet before there was much of an internet. Long time restaurant manager now working in the IT department of the restaurant company. Sad to admit it but my interests have “aged” somewhat - I actually enjoy gardening now! Is that sad?
Anyway; interests [if anyone cares]; computers & computing, crpg's [mostly solo first person like the original Might & Magic series, the Elder Scrolls series etc], travel and gardening [at which I am not very good]. And the latest; writing online articles and blogging. Very new to it and looking at it as a long term project with the goal to grow a little extra passive income by the time I retire.
Most who know me would likely suggest I sometimes have a somewhat weird outlook on the world - me, I would agree. A look at my blog “The Grumpy Old Limey” will likely bear that out. I also have a brand new site about Strange, Weird, Wonderful & Cool Buildings. Only 20 or so on there right now but I have several hundred lined up to publish over the next year or so.
It seems to me traffic is a function of several things and one of those is linking. If you find anything interesting about my blog and feel we might have at least some overlap of interests or sense of humor I am intending to link to like or interesting sites and blogs; mutual links would of course be great. If you are interested check out the “Links” tab on my blog and let me know. I would prefer links to blogs and sites other than InfoBarrel that you may have though if you have an InfoBarrel article I particularly like I may link to that.
If you have happened upon this bio from outside InfoBarrel and have an interest in joining InfoBarrel and helping us to grow the site and its content for the good of all you can sign up here. It is fun, interesting, entertaining and ultimately, with time and perseverance, can lead to some passive income
I look forward to corresponding with you and growing a group of friends here.
