Good evening world. My name is Alfie – or rather it isn’t! My father was known, in his youth as “Alfie” and when I was born his ancient Aunts couldn’t grasp that I had a name of my own and simply referred to me as Little Alfie. This is now doubly inappropriate as I’m 6 foot 4 inches (1.98m) tall. Still, I quite like it and it makes a handy name for internet use.
I was born in 1953, live in Peterborough, UK and have been inspired by the blogwork of an old school friend who contacted me recently, to get my own thoughts written down and shared with the world. That will follow in due course. Meanwhile I just wanted to say “Hello, pleased to meet you all”
