A Blog from a Geordie that covers the North East (England), current affairs, video games, and general topics along with personal thoughts and ideas.

This is my place of sanctuary. Here, I can forget about my main website,, for a little while and write about the North East of England, things that interest me, or that grab my attention.

Why write about the North East? The simple answer is that it has a history that goes back to the days of the Roman Empire and probably a few hundred years further. We also have our share of famous people from all walks of life both living and dead. There are some really lovely places to visit and things to do and dare I say‚Ķ stay a while. Oh, and let’s not forget the people who make your visit all that more pleasant.

Attended state schools (St Peters & Paul’s) and Spent my last 4 years attending St Cuthbert Secondary. Worked as a driver in the early years. Further down the line I got the warehouse manager’s post, did that for 25 years plus, Left that, and went on to spend 18+ years attending Newcastle Uni and North Tyneside College. (Humanistic approaches in Counselling). Now Qualified

I don’t have many dislikes apart from people who try to be something they’re not (conveniently forget where their roots are), and I do not suffer fools easily, so I am told. or people who over-talk others. so I am told. Apart from that, I eat and drink to live, love all kinds of music, places of interest, photography, computing, reading (mostly supernatural/horror, James Herbert / Stephen King), and swimming.

I like coffee and it would not be unusual for me not to have at least 2 cups every day. I also enjoy a drink of dark rum, and my appetite for chocolate biscuits has to be kept on the reign. I do not believe I am prejudiced and have a keen interest in the unknown. There are others but I won’t go into that here.

Many thanks for your visit. I hope you have found something of interest in these pages, and if you have, I hope you come again sometime. Jal Jineseyo. Thank you!
