Opening Words

Welcome ! I hope you enjoy browsing through my web site. Most of the points raised below will be familiar to, and understood by, most of us. They aim to be what you might call "Common Sense" and indeed, will be relevant to many web sites. However, I think I am being curteous to you, my visitor, if I try my hardest to nip any slightest possible misunderstandings - especially in the legal, safety and copyright domains - in the bud, before we have even the least hint of a situation that could potentially blossom out of control. It is of course always nice to keep life simple and amenable!

In advance, Many Thanks!


The aim of my web site is to share my experiences - in picture and text - with you, the visitor. Unless overtly based entirely on my personal and individual experiences, my web pages are also designed to support the aims of the clubs and societies to which these web pages make reference, either pictorially or textually, in the headers and subsequent content of the relevant web pages.


It's nice to get some basic things seen to first of all. Updates and validity, coming to this page and searching for topics are all considerations which I hope you can allow me to broach at this juncture! In advance, Many Thanks!


Technical considerations are based on experiences using the Windows® PC operating system which provided - and still provide - the development environment. However, these web pages should also be accessible using an Apple® PC. Using Android® may involve some additional considerations which will be aired in the next main section after this one.

Technical issues that could impinge on your enjoyment of these pages, include:

As you see, I have tried to suggest in this section possible remedies available to you, should you need to take cognizance of any of the above - and other - operational issues.


When using Android® v9, it should be realized that in the "miniature" display environment of smart phones, font size is important. I have found the following two steps to be helpful when viewing my pages in such a miniaturized display environment.

  1. Android OS Settings. Go to "settings/display/advanced" and set both "font size" and "display size" to default. Makes life easy!

  2. Individual Browsers on Android. Proceed as per table below, going, in the individual browser to "settings/accessibility". The result section, in the following table, compares what you see under the Android® OS with what you see on under the PC-based Windows10® OS. The question is, "When compared to viewing my web pages in a Windows10® environment, are page layout and relative font sizes maintained on the Android9® smartphone?".

  browser     aim for     set %    result  
Firefox® font size 100   keeps layout and relative font sizes
 MS Edge®  text size 50 keeps layout, but text enlarged
Chrome®  text scaling  50 keeps layout, but text enlarged

Of course, when viewing a web page either the "thumb - pointer finger" or the "pointer finger - middle finger" gesture can be used to alter the size of what you see on the web page. The above are my initial findings. They are NOT written in stone, but are given here in order to try and be helpful!! There may be better approaches!!

Accessing My Website


Disclaimers, such as you see below, are common to most web sites. These issues include content, web safety, links to external web sites, Formatting of external web sites, tracking cookies, language aspects, legal domain and local social customs, and technical and artistic aspects. In addition, the vast majority of pictures on the web site - whether digital photographs or clip art - are created by me; in this context I am happy to enjoy the creative (such as it might be) freedom of an amateur.


Legal issues are always best appproached, in the first instance, on a common sense basis. It is invariably nicer, easier and more convenient for everyone if we can keep matters at that level! Copyright, as I have tried to explain below, covers two aspects: (1) my material, which forms the bulk of what you see on this web site, and (2) material which comes from other individuals or parties. There are also the associated issues of registered trademarks and potential commercial use.
