This is me and my other half, Sue. We started going together over 35 years ago, and got back together in early 2013. I work as an administrator for a large retail company during the day, but spend my free time mucking about in our workshop or trying new recipes in the kitchen. Writing fantasy stories, photography and anything else that catches my imagination also take up what little spare time I have.

Plague Inc. is an iOS and Android strategy video game, developed by one-man developer Ndemic Creations. The player creates and evolves a pathogen in an effort to destroy the world with a deadly plague. The game uses an epidemic model with a complex and realistic set of variables to simulate the spread and severity of the plague.
It has been downloaded over 10 million times and was a runner up in the IGN Game of the Year 2012 awards for 'Overall Best Strategy Game'. Overall, it was the 15th most downloaded paid iPhone game of 2012 in the U.S.
This game is frikkin AWESOME! Many people complain that it's too hard, and some levels are tricky, but who wants a game you can win and win and win? The great thing is that you can try it on the free install, but to get the full game only costs 65p. There are a few in-game upgrades if you want them, that cost £1.49 each, but they're not required to fully enjoy the game. No better feeling than destroying humanity! :-)
