Our home is on a small island of 147 square miles off the South Coast of   England  (UK) called the Isle of Wight.  

                                                                                We live in a small sea side town called Shanklin.

To  find the Island just take a look at a map of the UK.  Off the South coast of England look for a diamond shaped Island.

      Below is a local map of the east Wight showing Shanklin

                                            Steve's Flying Page


 Thinking of learning to Fly, try a Microlight like  Steve is learning in......when the weather is good, time off from work ok, Aircraft available, Wind light.  The aircraft is a Thruster T600n.

Any donations to Steve's Flying fund welcome!!!!

He did suggest taking up golf instead but it would probably be raining if he managed to find the time to play.                        

 This type of flying though is really affordable and fun, for more information click the  link for the Specialist flying school web site  at

The Flying season for 2005 has been much better than 04. All training now complete Steve hoping to have licence before the end of August 05 just waiting availability of examiner.

GFT Passed August 05

Steve now a qualified pilot for 3 axis Microlight (Ultralight in USA)

Stop Press:

With Crystal and Edwina both keen to fly, GBJC was booked for a Sunday afternoon in October. Alas it failed to return from the mainland with another part owner who had to do an emergency landing on a Golf Course. This idiot failed to fuel the aircraft and was very lucky not to have ditched in the Sea and lost his life.

GBJC is now with the makers 'Thruster': Fate Unknown Insurance write off.

Steve now flying in club aircraft.

Next major plan: Build my own aircraft. A Skyranger looks good  Click SKYRANGER

My Cats remembrance page 

              KINKY                                        OSCAR                                                   JETHRO


I love Siamese cats, above is a picture of my little Boy Kinky, sadly no longer with us but remembered in our hearts. Next came Oscar who although terminally ill helped me get over the loss of Kinky, bless him our little Tuxedo cat. Then came Jethro, the Rogue, sadly another terminally ill cat, but feisty until the end.


                 Kinky at play            Oscar drinking pond water    Jethro also on the pond  

      For over 5 wonderful years we had a very large Tabby we called Tootsie, who has now sadly died



This has got to be my favourite picture of Tootsie very Arty you must agree.





Tootsie loves to sleep draped around my head. Waking up to those huge eyes staring at me is lovely, only problem her purring vibrates through the pillow.


     We  discovered Tootsie loved Corned Beef.



Tootsie in window waiting for someone to come home and feed her.

 We now have a new Kitten from Whizkits of Barnstaple N.Devon. A Siamese Chocolate Point we have named Chilli. A lap cat very loving and very playful.



6 Months Old




Chilli is trying very hard to make friends with Tootsie who seems to have the look of 'I don't like it but I will put up with it.'    However! we have caught them together.



                      Chilli is a devil with Poor suffering Tootsie, so a cunning Plan is now in operation. To get another Siamese Kitten.

Pippa has arrived...................Pictures to far the plan is working

Pippa     chocolate tortie point :  arrived 29th September 2007




                                          First  meeting with Chilli


                              Oh no! another Siamese



The great plan has worked, since Pippa came all attacks on Tootsie by Chilli have ceased. within just 3 days Pippa and Chilli bonded

                         In Memory of my American Friends cats.                                           


                       This is  Cody who lived in Florida ---->




<------This sad looking cat was a beauty called Magoo, who had been given a haircut, if you lived in Florida with all that fur!!!! you too would like it cut.



This is another Siamese like my kinky. This  lucky Siamese also lived in Florida with Cody and Magoo, Her name was PC

She would have been a lovely girlfriend to my kinky.


Ok so this is a cats page but this dog was special, Barney, who lost his life July 2004. Barney lived with all the above cats in Florida, I can still remember the first day I met Barney, he escaped, it was very funny watching my friend Vicky chase after him



In Memoriam: Sadly Vicky died  2006

If you live in England and have a loving home to offer to a homeless cat why not contact Carol at

                Cats Kingdom located on the Isle of Wight or your local RSPCA
