It's the words

AND the body



I try to do this website myself, struggling from one difficulty to another!

However, I keep it more or less up to date ..... and hope you find it useful.


A higgledy-piggledy website

A higgledy-piggledy mind

A higgledy-piggledy Do It Yourself

Of a higgledy-piggledy kind



For audiences of all ages

Pump up the language!

I've not posted on Tumblr/Youtube for quite a while, now.

For the time being, I am focusing on Facebook and, to a lesser extent, Twitter - and hard-copy publishing, of course!
