About Me

This is the obligatory creative introduction of Barry Beanland who was born in the latish 1950's and is now a British expatriate living and working in Saudi Arabia. I am still sane after nearly 30 years in Saudi Arabia, at the chalk face, teaching Saudi military cadets - a little change in the last 9 years with me doing the examinations.

I Barry Beanland am compassionate, sensitive, highly intelligent, quick witted & intuitive. I am a teacher, philosopher, counsellor and wannabe poet, artist & novelist. I love solitude and only seek the company of a (rare) chosen friend.

 I am married to Siyasanga a beautiful Souto Princess with whom I have two daughters Inga & Klara. I also have 5 sons Lee, James, William, Freddy & Jack who are fine young men from previous incarnations.

 I'm interested in novelty & innovation and like the people with passion, determination & courage. I admire those who are thinkers and achievers. The ups and downs of my complicated yet fairly simple life have instilled in me an indomitable strength that hardly ever flags.

 I was born in Salford, Lancashire, England, Great Britain, United Kingdom, my mother's maiden name is Morrison, my grandmother's maiden names are Kauffman & Seelig, one Grandmother (Kauffman) came from Russia, and another (Seelig) from Germany, one grandfather (Morrison) was Scottish/Irish, the other (Beanland) from England.

I am a man of panache and mystery, an enigma, gently sarcastic, often misunderstood & very misconstrued.

 I appear for many to be quite liberal, diplomatic & charismatic. I am who I am; therefore, you have to take me as you find me. I suffer for the most part from a diluted apathy occasionally causing me not to be bothered to fight for what is right or stand for what is glorious. What's the point as you only end up having to forgive most of the people for not understanding what they have done? When will they ever learn? Will they ever learn?

I collect watches and am a Connoisseur of horology with Blancpain & Patek Phillipe.

That is all you need to know about me for now and that is already probably too much!

 Also I have a strange sense of humor! :lol:

Thanks, Barry,,,so nice to be here!

I've been to the board and it looks like it's stone dead. It's a read-only board so I guess that's why. So where's the action? I've not seen a forum that I participate in and I talk a lot so you know I'm dying to join the discussions with some of the folks I already know at WIN.

I was able to log in as lgcamp so I guess I'm in. I'll keep reading the WIN instructions to see if there is something I haven't done to register for everything.

Hi, Barry...

My nickname is lgcamp. I tried earlier to register as zeropointvacuum, but it didn't seem to work. So when I tried later, I used lgcamp as my nickname. So look for either of these.

Thanks, Barry, for Rashid's tutorial on how to complete the joining process, but I think I pretty much did everything correctly without the help. At least I HOPE I have! His instructions seemed familiar so I guess I'm in.

Hi, Barry,

Just thought I'd post a THANK YOU and to let you know it may take me a bit of time to become proficient in navigating here, but I'm glad to be here!

Thanks Barry for the invite. Is there anything else I need to do to become a full member?
I also posted on your Beta site.
I'm a member of several WIN groups, two of which are at the 98% level. Let me know if there is anything else I need to do to become a permanent member.
