Like many people of my age — 70 — I feel the urge to share my interesting life with others. Since I was born in Ulster I have studied, worked and lived in many parts of the world. As an immigrant to England at age six I went through the English education system, served as a two-year soldier in Malaya, studied at the most prestigious university in England, worked as an educational civil servant in Kenya, travelled through the Middle East by car, built my own house in England, worked in Papua New Guinea, settled in Australia and am now retiring to a house on the beach in a beautiful part of Queensland. In my blog I hope to cover interesting parts of my life — especially the last few years. This may sound a bit humdrum but I've long passed the age where I seek to blow my own trumpet. impress or
