Cora and I had a good few days in a caravan on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England, A really beautiful place to visit with such varied scenery at every turn.
This is a steam railway that takes you through some gorgeous countryside. Better get off the track - there's a train coming!
Unfortunately, however valuable they may be, I am unable to accept the posting of comments in anything but the Queen's English.
Many years ago now I began to write what I had hoped would be a series of Mystery stories loosely based on my character and personality.
I have sold a few copies, but of course would always hope to sell a few more, and maybe form the background for a film!
If you would like to purchase an ebook copy from Amazon, just go to Debits, the first of the series.
You can also read online, or download a Kindle PDF version completely free.
‘Debits’ is the first in a series of mystery stories based on the diaries of Rick Shore. Rick is alive and well and lives in his much-loved bungalow in Worthing, West Sussex, on the South Coast of England. As well as enjoying the quiet solitude of his garden, Rick still enjoys the adventure of fishing from the local pier, but has yet to land anything heavier than a one hundred gram Bullhead which somehow became entwined on his line when reeling in one wet Sunday morning.
Rick began his working life as a Police Cadet, easing his way gently up through the ranks to Detective Inspector, when he was selected for a transfer to the Flying Squad. Here he remained for several years before taking early retirement and settling down for a quiet life and some good fishing. He now spends his retirement as a Private Detective working on mysteries that confound the local police force, more as a hobby than a job.
Rick was married for almost thirteen years, when regrettably he was divorced, leaving him to bring up three sons single-handed. The youngest of whom has only recently left home.
Rick is a deep thinking, quiet man with simple tastes and an easy manner, and loves to spend a quiet evening philosophising over some of life’s adventures.
This story is dedicated to my three great sons, Jez, Jon, and Tom who will, no doubt, recognise their dad within the book.
I have now uploaded a PDF copy of my second in the Rick Shore series and you can download a free copy
Another fine day here at home but still experiencing anxiety and depression when awakening. Apparently this could be related to my use of the bi-pap machine at night.
If it wasn't for one thing it is another .............
The war with Polio is not over yet it would appear.
I am an experienced college and university lecturer with a Masters Degree in Geographical Information Systems and Land Information Management and Mapping and have lectured at Chichester and Plymouth Colleges, and Brighton University, in all subjects within the Built Environment including Maths, Communication and IT, at levels 2 & 3, and Building Law, Economics, Land and Quantity Surveying, Planning and Development, and Geographical Information Systems.
I have also owned a English Language school in the Philippines very successfully teaching English as a second language to candidates applying for UK visas.
I am currently an NVQ Assessor and IQA for a number of colleges in programs to include Building Services, Surveying, Construction Management and Civil Engineering at levels 3 - 6.
My professional experiences as a lecturer and previously in private practice as a Land and Quantity Surveyor means that I am able to provide that additional input when students are studying for a range of subjects at school or college.
I am married with three adult sons and this also helps to add the additional dimension to my teaching and learning support.
