Came to Dublin for a holiday in March 2004 and decided to settle here.  Went home to Wales to pack a bigger bag.  I miss home of course, I love my country, but it's only a 40 minute flight to Cardiff, my home town! Rented an apartment in central Dublin and for the first five months or so, I was free to cruise the streets and generally got to know the city.  Have some stories!

Freedom came to an end when I met my partner in September 2004 and we have lived together since.  Glad we met when we did because things were getting out of hand! ;0) He has three children under the age of 12 who absolutely adore me for some reason! They live with their mother, I'm glad about that! But we get to see the kids almost every week... The partner's ex-wife is cool about us two, but the kids don't know that we are a couple, they just think their daddy has a really nice 'best friend'. I'm cool with that. They will know soon enough...

I love to dance, music and dance are soul food to me. I've been told I dance like a man many years younger! I have to admit, after two or three songs I have to sit down! When I was a young feller in the late 1960s, early 1970s, I belonged to a funk dance group. James Brown was our hero.

Cymro ydw i sy'n croesawu negeseuon yn YR IAITH!

Ah, that was all about me, would love to hear your stories! Come on, I'm a great listener, so I'm told...

Political Leaning Very Liberal

Wild Fact About Me In 1992, I painted anti government slogans on the outside walls of the Welsh Office the day a Welsh Language Act was passed. The 'ACT' was not strong enough! I was arrested (the desired effect) and taken to court. I could not speak Welsh at the time, but insisted the court proceedings were bilingual, exercising my right to a translator. I now speak Welsh fluently and have an Honours degree in Welsh.
My Philosophy Do what thou wilt, as long as it hurts nobody or nothing.
What Gives Me Hope That something wonderful will happen one day to eradicate poverty, ensure peace... Utopia if you like!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Destroy all weapons of mass destruction throughout the world! I would start in the United States. The US has about 1/2 of the world's nuclear weapons.
What/who changed my life and why Mr David Pritchard. Don't know if he changed my life, but he certainly had an effect! He was a neighbour when I was a child. The grandfather I lost, if you like. Both grandfathers I lost to cancer when I was 7 and 8.
What Bugs Me Hypocrisy, cruelty, bullying, Injustice  
Passions writing, the wilderness, Cities, Music, Fine art  
Inspirations Y Byd Natur / Nature, Buddha, Mohammed, Jesus Christ, Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King Jr  
What Scares Me Fear itself!, Nuclear Holocaust, Yellowstone National Park

Quotation I always keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake; which I also keep handy.

Movies Another difficult one. Big Fish, Bladerunner... too many to mention
