    I've been thinking about running this thread for a while now, but @t-tony just gave me an extra spin to add to it.
    Exactly as per the title, tell us all three interesting or random things about you (anything you like) & then post a picture of yourself.

    This should give other members a little insight in to their fellow members and add a face to the name! Ok then, I'll go first...
    1. I'm a freelance (posh word for self employed) web designer, but have been working with IT since I left school at 16.
    2. I was once in the top 100 XBox players world wide on a particular game :) My only real achievement in the gaming world.
    3. Despite managing the forum and organising events, I have no organisational skills worth mentioning. I often chuckle to myself when things actually happen round here . I'm currently not organising an upgrade to the sites article system as I type! =))

    Decisions, decisions, how to narrow it down to just three things???
    Here goes....
    1. I was born in Manchester but have lived in Nuneaton for more than 30 years with spells in Bradford, Bensheim and Toulouse in between.
    2. My interests are (in no particular order) cricket, ice hockey, football and cooking
    3. I have been a school governor for 12 years and am Vice Chair and Chair of Resources of the governing body of a local primary school.

    Here I am with the three men in my life.

    Not about the cars Tony, it's about your mug... Sort us out a sunny picture of you!
    That was my Z4, had it for a while along with my first Z3.

    I was born at a very early age, just outside Dudley, a little fishing village just off junction 1 of the M5
    I've got an 'O' level in Metalwork and another in Veterinary Science, so if your dog needs welding, I'm your man.
    I used to be a boxer, my nickname was "The Skittle"
    I got knocked down so many times that I've got a cauliflower arse

    This is our dog Fred. We searched high and low to find a dog that would match our floor
