A retired civil servant. Born and grew up in Cork, Republic of Ireland. I'm a single old geezer, quietly pursuing that rich woman but she's very elusive. In retirement I try to keep the mind active with creative writing-classes and a lot of reading. Current affairs probably occupy more of my time than is good for me. My MP doesn't reply to many of my complaints but she knows I'm watching carefully! Then, classical music - especially Mozart - soothes my troubled brow.
