Education played a large part in my life. When working during the day, in the evenings, and at weekends, I would partake of Open University (OU) courses. One of my loves is anything to do with computers. For anyone wishing to learn the basics of how their PC works I would suggest a visit to the OU website or other online educational websites.
Open University courses help you develop through knowledge, you can work on-line, and at your own pace. My Tutor Marked Assignment (TMA) for the now defunct course T171 was on Timothy Berners-Lee, he was the pioneer and paramount web developer, of the World Wide Web (www). For this TMA and others, I was able to search the Web for detailed Information.

I also dabble in story writing. As you will see I am very much a novice but it helps to take me away from reality, which we all need now and then. The 'Eye of Ra' story has several chapters. Alternatively, I have also written a short story (Novelette) named 'STAR'.
