“Give me a child until he is seven and I will show you the man.”

This quotation is variously ascribed to Aristotle and Ignatius Loyola: the photographs below (sent as part of a birthday 'nostalgia' package by my older brother Rob) suggest there's more than a grain of truth in the statement!

The first is the fossil collection I kept in my bedroom (I still have many of them!) the second is me with my first telescope, waiting to watch an eclipse of the Moon! Palaeontology and Astronomy: two passions that have stayed with me throughout my life!
