Primarily this blog has been made to support my website. This website is an entirely self-indulgent write up of me, worked out as I go along and always therefore incomplete. Tedious browsing material to say the least so this blog is here for me to publish information about new additions which, if anyone is bothered at all, is all you need to be bothered with.
It is also of course, as blogs usually are, a forum for me to rant, sound off or let steam out and a place for me to express myself for whatever reason on whatever topics that interest me.
I am not exactly mild mannered when it comes to expressing my ideas and opinions so if you are likely to feel any offence I am best avoided.

I'm an old fart, pretty old anyway, not generally known for the mildness of my views, but at least I try to be a sincere old fart. I think, paint, write and philosophise although not actually an artist, poet, writer or philosopher in the professional sense but that has never stopped me from doing what I do or regarding it as having value and importance. I am blogging because I can, I do not need a reason or feel obliged to justify my work which is fun while it lasts. I have an egotistical desire to make a record in cyberspace of all the unlikely, weird, mad, contrarian, sometimes kindly and constructive, sometimes blunt and offensive, often random thoughts, pomes and scribittings that take charge of my brain all the waking hours of my life and to do it before dementia sets in.
Hello folks. I am one of Paul's alter egos, God free and self sufficient. The only way of life I have ever known has been free of false hope, superstition, dogma, supernatural belief and the brain abuse perpetrated by organised religion. I am indeed one of the most contented of humans and I share my thoughts with others in the sincere and honest belief that they too can choose to enjoy as much freedom and contentment as I have if they chose. If you find my views offensive it implies that you lack confidence and doubt your own. It does not make my conclusions wrong. However hard you find it, the truth has a wonderful way of going on being true whether you like it or not and I insist that you cannot defeat ignorance by inventing something that simulates truth with faith and the denial of factual evidence.
And I am another (of his alter egos that is!) Good day! I have Norse origins. I sit at the table holding my council, watching, observing, contemplating and deliberating but all the time learning and growing. I can bite, I can kiss but I cannot lick. When it comes to my turn to speak I might or I might not. If I say anything It would have been necessary and I will speak without fear or favour. I mince no worms, tell no porkies, take no prisoners, eat no hats.
