Welcome to my page of links
The links immediately below lead to pages which contain my own thoughts and ideas on a variety of subjects. I make no claim to represent any other individual or organisation. They have been posted on the internet in the hope that they will be of some interest and stimulate discussion. Beyond these links to my own pages, you will find links to associated pages outwith my own site.
I would be happy to discuss these pages and their subjects - I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Why films are important and are worthy of study
Due to technical problems (and my inability to cope with them), new material will be posted on My Blog. So far, this includes discussions of "Dances With Wolves", “The Prisoner” (1967 TV series), “Inherit the Wind” (1960 film), a little Flash Fiction and some of my memoirs as a teacher in a small Highland school for some 35 years.
