I use an iMac and a Laptop. Now iPad, I use an Amazon Kindle for book reading. Love today's technology. Started using computers back around 1986, using the Atex system used in Commercial Printing and Newspapers. No screen images, just a html style programme on the screen. Your end result had to go through developer and fixer onto photographic paper.
I enjoy portrait painting and drawing. Have travelled to Canada, USA, England and Europe. I have stayed in Amsterdam often. Have travelled throughout
Europe a number of times. Last year was my last trip throughout the European countries. I have always carried a visual diary with me. Much better to sketch the items than taking holiday shots. Finished up with a few days in fantastic Dubai.
Planning a driving trip throughout USA next year.
My employment at present: I enjoy driving a Courtesy bus for a major Entertainment Club in the district.
