About meMy wife (Maureen)and myself enjoy reading, collecting and swapping books; so the books in my library will also include Maureen's as we have always done everything together.
For swapping we just use two websites at the moment (Readit-Swapit and BookMooch), we also leave books down in the lobby of the apartment block we live in as many other residents do.
I am now disabled although before I became disabled Maureen and I were employed by Lord and Lady Hanson here in the UK and in Palm Springs, California, where I was the Chef/Butler and Maureen was the housekeeper.
In 1978 I was elected to the Institute of Master Chef’s
My hobbies include photography and in 1986 I was elected to the Royal Photographic Society, I am also involved in the study of genealogy and social history and in 1980 was proposed and elected to the Society of Genealogists.
In the pursuit of genealogy, I use a computer to manage a database of some three thousand names and 100 families.
Our Other Interests Include:
Reading, Music, Movies, Photography, Food and Drink, Genealogy, and Walking in and around London
