jbsandown (John Butler)

Date joined: 17/08/13


John Butler is a proud Welsh "Gog" -with just enough Saesneg blood in his DNA to season passion with reality. According to his two adorable, grand-kids, he's related to half the people of Flintshire.

Widely known in the county's business and social circles, JB, "jbsandown" is a musician, craftsman, avid reader/writer -and thinker. Often burdened with keeping his thoughts to himself.

The "personal" data, as might be gleaned from his presence on "social-media", bears only passing resemblance to the facts. His age is indeterminate; he's been around for generations.

JB tries to be fair, honest and lightweight. Any who enjoy an occasional taste of the frothy broth of heritage, local culture and social commentary, might enjoy his micro-budget, collection of happenings. Mainly in and around the bit of UK he fondly calls, "Our Lovely Land".
