Welcome to my user page,

I keep a close eye on articles relating to the village in which I grew up, from which I've also gotten my user name. I'm also known to dabble here and there on other articles in which I have an interest in (see userboxes for an idea), especially those relating to Ipswich Town F.C., and also do Old School-style Recent Changes patrol from time to time. I'm more than willing to fling Vandals all the way back to late antiquity.

I can be very intermittant activity-wise. Please don't swamp me when I am about as I will get overwhelmed. Please encourage me when I go quiet as I could probably do with a motivational lift ;) I'm also a bit of a perfectionist at times, so don't let me be too hard on myself, and whack me with a trout if I push others too hard please!

Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.

Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.

The difference between a misfortune and a calamity is this: if Gladstone fell into the Thames, it would be a misfortune. But if someone dragged him out again, that would be a calamity.
