Seven interesting (or maybe not) things about me, as seen on Caddyman's Journal:
  • I used to produce and present a monthly  radio programme on BBC Local Radios Kent and Essex on Astronomy and Spaceflight  in the late 1980s. I wrote it myself and used to have a mail bag, do phone-ins  and was featured in an edition of the Radio Times which featured Sherlock Holmes on the front cover.
  • It's 10 years since I had kiss.
  • I was once a Diary Secretary to two very different Ministers of State between 1999 and 2001. Nick Raynsford MP Housing and Planning Minister, and Lord Falconer Planning Minister.
  • After seeing, 'Labyrinth'  & Joe Johnston's adaptation of Dave Steven's 'Rocketeer' I developed a massive crush on Jennifer Connelly. In 1995/6 while working at Shepperton on a really rubbish film called Bryl Cream Boys I spent the entire  day and evening  on set where this very attractive brunette was hanging out with Bill Campbell who was the lead(turns out she was his girlfriend).  I only found out later  that it was Jenniffer Connelly !!!!!! (not that I would ever have had the guts to say hello.......)
  • One of my relatives is burried in  the cloisters of Westminster Abby.
  • My Grandad (my Mum's Dad) served on board HMS Ajax during the Battle of the River Plate in WWII.
  • I have a large collection of fossils and rock which I collected as a child - my favorite find was a piece of sharks jaw bone  which included   a tooth set in jawbone and also shows fossilised skin !!!!!
