My main interests are travel and outdoor activities and sport - especially scuba diving. I also enjoy computers and general techie stuff, and sadly to say, I spend a fair bit of time doing DIY related tasks!

My Favourite Web Sites
Birdcam [Garden Webcam]
I've found a "useful" application for my Raspberry Pi; as a garden webcam, looking at the visiting birds. Hopefully, we will get a nest in our nest box and I will train it on that in the spring! Click here to view Steve's Birdcam.
For our family and friends, we have some pages, including photos of Natasha, Niamh & Matthew which are password protected. Please email me if you want details of how to access this area of the website. Click here to access this area of the website.

Tijou Family Tree
We are direct descendants of Jean Tijou, the famous ironworker who carried out work at Hampton Court, St. Paul's Cathedral and Chatsworth, among other places in the late 17th century. My dad has done a lot of research and thanks to that, and help from people on the internet over the last few years, we now know that Jean Tijou was my great great great great great great great great grandfather.
