  • Description

    Hi, I'm a former design engineer, but acquired other skills, carpentry, plumbing, & decorating (including tiling) from building my own home when I retired. Worked as mechanic when young so have mechanical knowledge of older vehicles, but no experience with modern cars. Grew up on a farm in Missouri so have some knowledge (and love) of animals. Emigrated to U.K. when thirty and have lived there since. Over the years have studied basic French, Italian and Spanish, but am out of practice in all three and would love to gain more experience in any or eventually all of them.
