I am a retired chap who worked in company pensions. More than a little nerdy!
Did I always avoid being nerdy? Alas, no. But I did make the effort.
I think I managed to avoid being too nerdy, especially when talking to our employees and pensioners about their concerns.
Before retiring, I worked for British Waterways, the UK authority for running the country’s canal network.
My main hobbies are collecting things (mainly coins and stamps) and photography.
Since retiring, I have been tracing my family tree and have come back to my great great great grandparents in the early part of the 19th century.
Although I’m not an expert, I can help you with basic information about how to go about tracing your family tree. However, my direct experience only relates to the UK.
Eclipses are another interest. I have witnessed 2 total eclipses. Realistically that will be the only two. One was in France, the other in Turkey.
Oh yeh. There’s an Olympic diary as well, which you may find a tad more interesting than the above.
