There's also a picture of me at home using my computer (68k JPEG).

Lovers of mountains and scenic views might also like to look at pictures of me on top of Scafell Pikes (England's highest mountain) and Snowdon (Wales's highest mountain). Nice we're having weather! Also The U.K.'s highest mountain Ben Nevis (it was misty but dry!). If you prefer hills to people, here's a picture of Ben Nevis by itself.

For more mountains look at my watercolour collection.

If, like me, you are fond of the British Broadcasting Corporation's long running radio soap opera "The Archers", here is a picture of Peggy Woolley (Peggy Archer as was) and me playing Scrabble. I am the one in the bright pullover. In my spare time I wrestle alligators.

For further examples of egocentrism see my conference pictures.
