Hi all. After 40 years as digbee (a nickname give to me by a former employee), I'm reasonably well-established on the net. Now 77, retired pro photographer, as well as past professional driver of limos, overdimension trucks, tractors, delivery vans, forkhoists, orchard worker, barman, Manpower and factory labourer, you name it, I've probably had a go at it! Great-grandfather of two (at the last count), and proponent of the Kiwi way. My hobbies - American outline model railways, photography, photoshop, Amazon and ebay, My philosophy - we're all here to help each other - do unto others, and leave the world a better place for having been here.. Ask any questions..Cheers.. Doug.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
