I am a retired chemical engineer with an interest in engineering, science, things technological, things theological and a budding artist … quite a mix really.

I come from a relatively small family and I was born and raised in the “Black Country” – the industrial heartland of England – but I moved to Chester with my wife for work when I had completed the research for my PhD and now we wouldn’t live anywhere else.

We have two wonderful daughters who are married to two great guys. Thanks to them, we now have four amazing grandsons and a granddaughter – we are truly blessed.

I was inspired to blog by one or two other inspirational bloggers but who knows how this particular stream of consciousness will turn out or where it will lead … I just hope that it will be meaningful and, just maybe, of interest to others … who knows?
