London is where I was born. I have been fortunate enough to have lived in Asia, Africa, and Europe over the years which I loved, both the people and the culture. However, at the end of the day, I guess Samuel Johnson was right when he said, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”.
If you could invite any three people to dinner, past or present, who would they be & why?:
Leonardo Da Vinci as I would like to ask him where he was between 1476 and 1478 as there is no record of his work or even of his whereabouts. and when he re-emerged he had all of these ideas, inventions and plans. How Leo? What were you up to?
Alexander the Great, well the name and his achievements speaks for itself, no commentary needed.
Katherine Johnson, African-American mathematician who calculated by hand trajectory and orbital equations analysis for the flight paths of many spacecraft during her more than three decades (1953 to 1986) with the U.S. space program. This work sent astronauts in to orbit, the moon and contributed to the Space Shuttle programme. For the Friendship 7 mission, astronaut John Glenn didn’t trust the new NASA IBM computer and would only launch once Johnson manually recalculated the figures. Her achievements were against a backdrop of racial segregation with the Civil Rights Act only coming into force in 1964. Born in 1918 she is still going strong today. Her achievements and that of her African-American colleagues were honoured in a recent film called Hidden Figures.
“You shall, I question not, find a way to the top if you diligently seek for it; for nature hath placed nothing so high that it is out of the reach of industry and valor” …….Alexander the Great
What is your dream occupation & why?: Caretaker holding the key to the cellars of the Vatican within whose vaults there are many historical secrets. I’d be a real pain, very nosy and would open everything.
What is number 1 on your bucket list?:
To visit Graceland and have a beer and burger with Elvis! You are wrong, I know he is still alive!
Favourite restaurant in the Channel Islands?
The Park House – brilliant Thai food, great atmosphere, basic décor and Aranya the owner is fabulous.
If you could travel back and witness any historical event, what would it be & why?
To stand with the 300 at Thermopylae and experience that ‘Molon Labe’ moment. Such a critical point in the worlds history – “Oh stranger passing by, tell the Spartans that here we lie, obedient to their laws”
