I’m John Welch, recently taken early retirement and living in Norfolk (UK). I use Facebook, and always think of it as like being with a group of friends in the pub. The conversations jump about all over the place, interspersed with quick humour and odd comments. Sometimes, however, I find myself wanting to talk about some things in a bit more depth, so I thought I would try blogging to see if that worked. I love reading, enjoy photography, and like walking, so I expect this blog will evolve into me talking about these, with the odd musing about politics, current affairs, and the price of fish. I don’t have a book in me, but I do think I would like to evolve the quality of my writing. Let’s hope it doesn’t get pretentious!
