Welcome to NR23.net

If you're looking for information about somewhere in north Norfolk, this site isn't really for you. The name comes from the postcode NR2 3xx where I live; the Norwich Golden Triangle, and the significance of the number 23 which may or may not become apparent.


Me in 2023.

A personal look at my bit of the latter half of the 20th Century and the first bit of the 21st, with perhaps a dash of explanation as to why I don't really like what's happened to the country in that time, and certainly why I dislike much that the present government and, well, politicians in general in fact.

In short, I've always felt this country has so much to offer yet we elect such morons to rule over us, so perhaps we only have ourselves to blame.

I'm retired now, but this is a look back on what has, so far, been mostly a fun time.
