a free thinking

& a very

independent spirit !


Thank you for visiting and you are most welcome.

 This is a project of self publicity, in moderation.

This site has a few objectives.

Firstly, it will gather together some stories and adventures (links are to the left "Journey in Life" ) from my youth in Ireland, through nearly 2 decades working in South Africa, Swaziland, Zaire, Zambia and Nigeria, with frequent travels to Botswana and Zimbabwe, before finally settling here in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England in 2002. 

There were also two extended eye opening backpacking trips during the 90's to South East Asia and also one to Cuba. Links to various trips are to the left. 

"Complexity & I" deals with some of the more personal aspects to my life.

I have added a section to reflect my observations on recent holidays.

Secondly, I have appended a link on the left, to my Linked In page which I use to promote by business as an Independent Professional Interim Finance Contractor and my company "Mastercraft Enterprises Ltd" through which I offered my services around the UK since 2003.

Thirdly: Links to a gallery of Acrylic Nail Art pictures (fingers supplied by me).

Fourthly: I have provided copies of Personal Accounts and sailing logs of various voyages by sailing ship between 1915 and 1919 of Captain Richard Farrell who was an Uncle on my fathers side of the family. Impressive adventures, inspiring and downright scarey at times.

Finally; I also must make mention of the supplementary work I do; tracking down missing leprauchauns and extraditing them to Ireland. This work is voluntary and essential to the Irish tourist industry (in my view alone).

My humour is frequently off-beat, occasionally acid-dry and sometimes sprinkled with wickedness.
