hobbies and personal stuff

Enough of the tech already ... I'm not a complete workaholic, and there are other things that float my boat  (smile) Unsurprisingly enough, I'm not really called brothercake — my name is James Edwards, and I live in a tiny town called Oswestry, near the Shropshire / North Wales border. That's me in the photos over there (if you can see them).

A proud Britpack member. Another great passion of mine is music, and indeed there was a time when I planned it as my career. Suffice it to say, it didn't work out like that, but I present for your enjoyment a selection of British underground dance music — tunes I've written or co-written over the years. I also enjoy cooking, going to outdoor festivals, and just generally being outside, and these interests converge in my Festival Cookery Guide — how to cook tasty and nutritious food over an open fire.

If you're interested in the history and makings of this website, there's a section called about that will give you the low-down.

And that's about as much of myself as I'm prepared to put online  (eek!)

Rocking-out to Iron Maiden live, wearing a tour t-shirt, and with a big happy pout on my face
