Introduction for SteveW68

I am a 46 year old man, who is now 16 years into his second career as an IT support Engineer, working for a large international IT service provider. First career was 14 years serving in the Army as a linguist, listening to Russian military communications (so we knew what they are up to). Also now 2 and a half years into my second marriage, which is already 100 times better than the first. I am the UK admin for a hoax busting site run by an Australian gentleman and his family, which can take up a certain amount of time. It really is amazing what some people will believe, given the queries we get. A cat convert, thanks to my wife (was a previous GSD owner with first wife) with a total of 5 cats in the house, ranging from a female torty moggie to pedigree blue point Siamese. This is my very first venture into blogging, but not writing (I have written a couple of articles the subject of which gained National press coverage).

Welcome to Persona Paper. It's a pleasant enough site and I think reasonably well presented in comparison to some other blogging sites I've looked at but not joined, so you could do a lot worse for your first venture into blogging.

Happy New Year

Thanks Debbie! didn't really think I could do it - but once I started my first two posts it just flowed! And was fun doing it too!

hoax busting for a living sounds awesome - I have written stuff for various sceptical journals after a bad experience with a cult in the 1980's

Well - I don't do that for a living. I am a computer engineer by day. the Hoax Slaying is done in spare time. Our FB page now has in excess of 180K "Likes"

Nice to meet you , you mentioned I may know your wife . What's her name.

You have commented on one of her pieces on here, that is probably the only interaction. Although she was also a member of that "other" site. Her name is Sarah.
