About me

I’m just an ordinary guy who through circumstances has had four careers – farming, aviation, international transport and until recently, translation. This has taught me a lot about various interacting parts of society and cultures. I now know that our basic interests are the same – we wish the best for our families and ourselves – but we have to bow to the customs and usages of the country where we live. I think it is very useful to read or re-read books or their translations written a hundred or more years ago to realize that language has changed but people have not. I love reading Russian, French and of course English authors of that time to which I would now add Italian (think of Buzzati, more modern) and some North African writers. But good thrillers like John Grisham’s are more than worthwhile (read them all!) where there is never a dull phrase -amazing. Could go on and on but won’t. Just keep reading anything and everything you find interesting.

I thank you for your reply but I must have binned it by mistake. I did however download the CN page you sent me and it does not correspond with the CN link so I am still in unknown territory. Please could you send me a copy of your reply as the clue to my problem might well be in it. I'm sorry to be such a b..... nuisance! Philip (more) and bagged+3

Nobody ever answers my queries and problems. The current one is that I simply want to order copies of my own book to use it as a basis for English lessons. I see no way on the site of doing this even though I did order individual copies from time to time although once I never received them vis Paypal. Won't use them again.

I want to temporarily stop my payments via Payoneer to your establishment. There is no reaction to my publication, probably because it did not hold enough interest for the public and any way my wife died 10 weeks ago so life is a bit hard. I am working on another book that should be better and when it is finished I shall renew my subscriptions. Could you please stop my payments or tell me exactly how to do it. Thanks a lot. Very kind regards. Philip Hill (more) and gained+3
