Me with my Gold Star 100HF #780234
I'm fortunate to have been involved in a variety of interests, hobbies
and pastimes, including Scouting (Wood Badge from Gilwell Park), Amateur
Radio (G4UXD), and Pot-holing (aka spelunking) (I was a very actuve
memember of the Northern Pennine Club and of the Yorkshire Ramblers
Club) . That led to major original explorations, (including the
and exploration of Link Pot,
Link Pot Exploration-1,
) and Tatham Wife Hole). and a
of cave filming.
I did a lot of Computing, Programming, and Caravanning. A delight is and always was French Cuisine and tasting wine in the French vineyards. (The latter, together with the steady decline in caving and increased sitting in front of rigs and computers has done nothing for my figure - in my serious caving days I could get through 8", but 12" would be nearer the mark now!). Also I'm heavily into cosmology, quantum mechanics, particle physics and string theory. Alsosymmetry, group theory and their applications in chemistry.
If you think you need to exercise your brain then get into one of those
fscinating science subjects!
Running the North West Bluegrass News magazine was agreat pleasure even though extremely time consuming!
Nosey visitors might like some of our private
albums... There's a lot of interesting pix there - including us
operating asNJ6VT/G4UXD/MM from the Radio Room of the famous WW II submarine
Pampanito in San Francisco Bay; Jean chatting up Edward Teller (a member
of the Manhatten project Los Alamos atom bomb project and father of the hydrogen
or 'super' bomb) and;more. See our phot albums!
Amazingly, I was interrogated by Edward Teller! How many people can say that?
I am an obsessive DIY person. When she was young our daughter used to tell people, "My daddy can do anything with two buttons, a piece of string and an elastic band!" I used to tell her, "don't forget the pop rivets.." Since then I have discovered something I can't do, and that is to plait (braid) sand., but I wish I could!
So, why the banjo photo? Well, everybody has better rigs and antennas than me.... <g>
BTW: The logo on the T-shirt says "Hard Rock Hotel; San Quentin State
Prison." Jean managed to get herself locked up in there! But when they heard
her shouting they let her out!
