Puzzle News


It’s all about our life and interests, both together and separately. 

That covers friends and family, life in our home town of Teddington in SW London,

my mechanical puzzle activities, music and our holidays and days out,

highlighting Alice’s love of nature generally and bird-watching in particular.

Winter 2016, major site overhaul in progress.  (People always put that!) 

Expect that many links are not yet correctly enabled, especially on the new grey title bars like the one above.

You can still get the old index here.  And the new photo index.

Waa..aay down below you can see our new flag record of site visitors, after a random sample of photographs from bygone days.

I started this web site in about 1998.  As of Spring 2016 it is getting its biggest ever refurbishment. 

My goals are to include more current information, more pictures, no dead links, consistent format and typeface, better readability on more screens, and to get rid of characters that display badly.  But no free beer.

It is a bit untidy and experimental ...but just wait...
