Fond of family, country life, food, mornings, and beauty. I can find interest and humour in just about anything.
With a good, solid, Yorkshire-market-town, Methodist upbringing I should be a shrewd, God-fearing, upstanding citizen. Instead I turned my back on them all, incorporated the good and left the bad behind.
I am interested in, and have things to say about, cricket, beer, modern novels, painting, the Blues (music not Birmingham City), guitars, the economy, Ashbourne, markets, history, genealogy, marketing and sales, Social Media and Social Networking, Margaret Thatcher, cooking, religion, politics, education, birds, football, American football, wine, the Olympics, gadgets, management, weather, travel, philosophy, design and popular culture. Just don’t expect me to agree with you.
I have nothing to add about fashion, DIY or celebrities.
This blog is about me and my life in and around the fine town of Ashbourne. I’m just a bloke really. I have no political, commercial or organisational ties to declare… just opinions and ideas. Please follow my blog and I’d love to hear your comments and additions to debate.
I’m very happy to try and answer any questions you may have about Ashbourne. If I don’t know the answer myself I’ll try and find out. So if you are thinking of visiting or you are already here and have a burning question you are struggling to Google – drop me a line and I’ll do my best to get you an answer within 24 hours.
I’m on Twitter through @greencontact discussing contact centres and social media. As @ashbournevoice I will follow back anyone in the Midlands but particularly in Derbyshire and Ashbourne.
