of gainful employment is behind me once again, as I
embark on a Masters in education at
Queen's University, Kingston. It's early days
yet, but I'm focusing research on the controversial
topic of "Creationism vs. Science" in North American
education. Take a look at some of the stuff I'm
doing as I go...
My Family and Other Animals
Photo's of the family - Daniel (b. 19/08/1992), Abigail (b.
06/07/1995) and Amelia Joyce Patricia (b. about 16:10, 25/11/2004,
5lbs 61/2oz), not to mention Lorraine, myself, our parents, the rest
of the family, friends, pets and everybody else, what we all get up to
and all the rest, are here...
Biologist by training,
scientist and techie by inclination, consultant and
college lecturer by profession and currently a

wouldn't be valued as much then would it?
now, I'm typing this overlooking a stunning
vista of lake and woodland, shining in a
brilliant, clear-blue sky. Abigail's preparing
for university next September, Dan's in
Peterborough doing his thing, Amelia is playing
has her devoted grandfather at her beck and call, my incredible wife
is hard at work on her Ph.D., and Joyce, the best mother-in-law that
ever set foot in a kitchen, is conjuring wonderful
smells from an oven that's older than me.
