These pages form a sort of "Electronic Vanity Press" and contain assorted writings by and for my family. Two of them have indeed been published - one, the poem "For Christopher," was broadcast on local radio, and "Paddling Through Porridge" was published in "Canoeing" magazine. The rest however have been read only by a select few - an illustrious company which I hope you are about to join!
