Profile Information

Introduction
IF ONE TELLS THE TRUTH , ONE IS SURE , SOONER OR LATER , TO BE FOUND OUT .

Mad , bald and dangerous to know . Long term interest in late Victorian period - in particular the 1890s literary scene . Perhaps , considering my demographic , more neo- victorian than Steampunk , but enjoy dressing the part etc. Visits to nearby Ballarat include stays at the gold rush era 'Craigs' , site of a visit by the crew of the Civil War raider ' Shenandoah' c. 1865 .

HEALTH WARNING - THE PROFESSOR IS A SCEPTIC WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ANY CONTRIBUTION HE MAY MAKE TO FORUMS SHOULD BE IGNORED !

Increasing age and infirmity may also be cited to excuse the more extreme aspects of his behavior . The title ' Professor ' was granted ( 1908 ) by Prince Hapnick of Carpania - as recorded in the Blake Edwards documentary ' The Great Race ' 1965.


PATRON SAINT ( BY ACCLAMATION ) OF THE ' LEAGUE OF ECCENTRICITY ' .

Misunderstanding ?

The problem with an addiction to black clothing is that one is sometimes mistaken for a member of an obscure cult ,  a vampire ( this is liable to occur late at night ) or anything else but a heroic defender of our section of the aether .We need a way of identification so that next time I'm about to smoke some black clad alien he doesn't confuse me by claiming to be one of us .See More

Again, thank you for your kindness and support. I often feel like the only one who can pull me out of a slump is myself, and there are always wonderful people shouting encouragement to me, like yourself. >curtsies/p>
