About Me

My name is Andy Dadswell, I was born in 1957 in London but persuaded my parents to relocate to the North West of England when I was 4. I have been happily married to Jacqueline for over 30 years, and we have 2 children, both grown up but still living with us. We live in Ramsbottom,  a small town in East Lancashire.

After working continuously for 39 years I recently took an opportunity to retire from a well known telecommunications company as a messaging infrastructure designer, for whom I had worked for over 30 years. Although officially ‘retired’ I”m not sure that I’m quite ready for full time retirement just yet.

I really have far too many interests, which means I never get to concentrate on any of them long enough to really be an expert, but that doesn’t stop me having a go.

Interests include

  • Badminton
  • Ice Hockey
  • Photography
  • Genealogy
  • Walking
  • Computing.

I’m not really sure what this website is for yet, it started as a straightforward WordPress blog but now I’m converting it to a Website that uses the WordPress platform. Like many techies it might just be a passing phase and I’ve only started it because I can, we will see where it goes.

If you’re still reading I have a question for you, why ?
