In the words of Emily Dickenson  'I’m Nobody! Who are you? Are you – Nobody – too? Then there’s a pair of us! Don’t tell! they’d banish us– you know!'

In the words of the Steve Miller band' I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover, And I'm a sinner, I play my music in the sun'. Actually I am none of those things and I bloody hate that song. 

I'm more Sly and the Family Stone 'I am no better and neither are you, We are the same, whatever we do, You love me, you hate me, you know me and then, You can't figure out the bag I'm in, I am everyday people, yeah yeah'

Are you getting to know me any better?

It seems a bit like a waste of time. You might be better just reading some of my articles. I'm pretty honest and open, you are sure to get a fair idea of what I am about.
