I am a retired medical practitioner.  This website is a combination of resources for teachers in reproductive medicine and ventilation for my continuing interests:

  • bush walking (called tramping in Kiwi and rambling in the UK)
  • travel
  • reading
  • photography
  • Landcare
  • Volunteering
  • Community action

This site is monitored regularly.

I provide surgical assistance to specialist surgeons at a Private Hospital for up to 6 hours each week. I also teach and examine medical students at a Rural School of Medicine in Coffs Harbour, NSW for a few hours each year. I have a small citrus orchard at Nimbin and I exercise in bush regeneration near my home in Coffs Harbour.

  8. Personal photos to share with you and Pam. If your ears burn….often. It would be our fault. Love to family xxx

  9. Hi again, Max! I’m an avid reader too. I’ll read anything as long as it’s well-written – any genre. I wish I’d kept a list too. I’ve recently ‘discovered’ crime fiction – a genre I didn’t think I’d like…..but have really enjoyed a few. May I recommend The Belltree Trilogy by Barry Maitland.
