This website is a place for me to write about my passions and anything that I find interesting. My hope, of course, is that you (my gentle readers) will find it interesting to read as well.
I’m beginning this blog while on a visit to Papa Westray in Orkney (Papay to the locals) in August 2021 where my daughter and her family have chosen to make their home. So the initial blog entries will be based on my experiences here. These will be in the “Papay” category
I will be adding more categories as my ideas for new articles develop. I can confidently predict that there will be categories for genealogy, popular science, maths, puzzling and the environment but others that I can’t yet foresee will, I hope, emerge.
You are welcome to comment on my writing but bear in mind that I retain editorial control and so I may edit or even remove anything that doen’t fit with my personal preferences for the site.
With all that in mind, let’s get started!
