I am a Chartered Accountant and specialise in tax; for the last 41 years I have been writing a book on tax, I enjoy swimming, playing tennis, playing bridge, reading, music reading and going to the theatre and cinema. I also very much liketravelling with my wife Margaret.
We have three married children and 10 grandchildren! So this keep us busy ; we love having people to stay.
Five things I can't live with out are my wife, her cooking, my children and grandchildren our garden and my CD collection.
Favourite travel destinations include France, Spain, New York and Israel.
We have many DVDs of favourite movies including those featuring John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Astaire and Rogers and Hitchcock.
I have a soft spot for Bernstein shows such as On The Town and West Side Story.
I am a lover of most classical music except the very modern and we often go to concerts.
We have a relaxed atmosphere in our home and previous guests have become good friends.
We travel mainly by car, train and plane.
I am very determined and have a good sense of humour. One of my life's mottos is 'If a job is worth doing it's worth doing well.'
