about James Kilty

James is a bit craggy these daysBorn and bred in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and a natural supporter of Newcastle United, we moved to Blackburn for a career move of my father, a maths teacher. From College, thence to University in London where study and continued research in Physics at Imperial College, led to a career as a teacher of Physics. After a solid foundation, and the growth of a family, research in Education beckoned and a Ph.D. finally became realised. A second career at Surrey University, training teachers of Nursing and allied professions led to involvement with the Human Potential Reseach Project which I reconstituted after its founder moved on.

Early retirement allowed me to fully concentrate on staff development work with Metropolitan Police officers seconded as trainers. Full retirement brought a move to Cornwall near the old West Godolphin mine, where organic gardening and growing led naturally to beekeeping. The wheel turned full circle with the start of a new beekeeping course and development work in bee breeding. A second family side by side with grandchildren of the first family and great grandchildren should hopefully make true retirement possible in due course and the completion of some unfinished writing, presented in these web pages. Intensive revision for annual exams meant beekeeping had to give way and our daughter now is an accomplished vet of 4 years experience and immense skill and potential.

Meanwhile, as I amend and develop a couple of small web sites and continue my writing in fits and starts, I enjoy listening to After Hours.FM. I have to admit being pasionate about Linux now, with its community of developers and helpers and the freedom it gives to me, the user. more about James

By 2023 we have had 7 years in a bungalow in Hayle which has given Sharon greater freedom of movement, better connections by bus and train as I gave up driving and a new opportunity to model the railways of my childhood.
