I have given 4 Presentations entitled ‘Music and Verse 1 – 4‘ for Recorded Music Societies.
They have been a GREAT Success.

After I presented ‘Music and Verse 4‘ for the South Cheshire Recorded Music Society, a member of that society said –
“Hand on my heart, that was the best presentation I have heard in 50 years of being a member of this society.”

I can recognize about 95% of towns and cities in the UK, with a population of about 50,000 or more, by the shape of the built up area on a map.
I know about 40 or 50 quotes by Goethe ( Translated ) to recite from memory.
I worked out in my head that 319 x 58 = 18,502 and that 449 x 2,750 = 1,234,750.

At about 10 or 11 years old, I told my mother, at the local Methodist church, without any contradiction in my mind, “I don’t believe in God!

I bought the ordnance survey maps and an expensive milometer, to prove, if only to myself, that although obviously London has a larger built up area than Birmingham, that you go through more main bulk of built up area by rail into Birmingham New Street station via Wolverhampton than into London Euston station via Watford.

I am Hyper, Hypersensitive.
I am Very, Very Perceptive.

My favourite piece of music is Venus by Holst.

I think it would be good if everyone could be happy.
