Cheetah Cubs, 3 months old
I took this picture a couple of years ago at Cheetah Outreach, Spier Wine Estate, Capetown. The one with the darker markings, looking as though he is in Feline heaven, is a King Cheetah. (There are only about 28 of them in the whole of South Africa. Their markings are caused by a Recessive gene in both parents).
I was invited to wingwalk in aid of the RAFA Benevolent fund. So I took to the air on the Press Day of the Shoreham Air show back in July. We have some footage taken from the wing of the plane as I flew over the sea at Brighton, keep coming back here as at some point we'll get it transferred and up on the site for you to see.

It is now a trifle out of date and out of print although it can still be purchased on Amazon. Perhaps I should begin work on the last few years which have been action packed.

The funeral of my father was held yesterday in the Forest of Dean Crematorium. It’s only now hitting me that he is gone and I’m fit for nothing today. My stepmother and her daughter and son in law put together a superb tribute to Daddy and the Service could not have been bettered. I knew my father... Read more...
18 October, 2014: BLOGS TO COME
Please excuse lack of Blogs recently. The death of my father has been part of the reason that I haven't had the time to sit down and write. I had a fascinating 10 days in the South Eastern part of the Dordogne in the Sarlat region and will write about it shortly. I was in seventh... Read more...
