"It's not really a repair - more like a remodel. I'm one of those people who allows chaos to grow bit by bit until it becomes intolerable. "Clean up as you go" is a wise and practical rule, but for folks like me it's difficult to put into practice! I tend to go for the quick fix so that I can keep up the momentum of whatever I'm working on."
"Things were getting out of control so I decided to turn over a new leaf and reorganize the studio from top to bottom with the emphasis on practicality and ease of use. No more spaghetti wiring and jury rigging!

"The door knocker is a miniature replica of the famous sanctuary knocker which still hangs on the north door of Durham Cathedral where I was a boy chorister many moons ago. It dates from the 12th century and is a vivid reminder of those medieval days when the privilege of sanctuary was one of the most jealously guarded prerogatives of the church. At any hour of day or night, an escaped prisoner or fugitive from the law could knock on the North door and be granted the protection of the church."
"From the historic to the silly: The other sign is a British Railways sign and I nicked it when I was a teenager. (Also many moons ago.)"
