Yes I know its an odd photo. You'd be surprised how many emails I get saying just that!!

As with most websites this page is always under construction so I wont bother you with a nasty little digging animated gif. If theres something that used to be online and its now disappeared or youve got a link to something on my site thats now broken, drop me a line and Ill either put it back online or tell you where its moved to.

More details and info to follow.
