After years in the offshore oil industry, I expected working for Plexus to be similar to early retirement - the expectations don't match with reality!
I live in North Kessock with my wife Susan, her daughter Caitlin and my son Alex.
My first website was a collection of graphics for supporters of Ross County FC - still online here. In those days I thought it was a good idea to use graphics for text! More recently I've created a couple of sites for friends - the Kist O'Dreams Scottish Lullabies site, an archive of traditional lullabies and the Inverness Fiddlers website.
I run a local fantasy formula 1 league and have driven around the Silverstone and Monaco tracks, albeit in an XR3.
Lately I've been listening to some 1920 hillbilly music. Try this one by Obed Pickard.
Dave's Rants - Mindless Throwaway Music, the word 'cool', TV News, the word 'entrepreneur, Planning Regulations, and more.
Colin's Rants - Leaf Blowers, Sports Exhausts, DVD Players, and other irritations.
Garve's Rants - Weather presenters and their misuse of the English language.
Jamie's Rants - Coming Soon. Promise
Gill's Rants - Coming Soon, if she can but overcome her natural modesty and retiring nature.
The design, layout and functionality of our new site work exceptionally well for us. Colin designed a site that was exactly what we were looking for. It was a pleasure working with designers who are professional, understanding and creative.
