Hi! Nice to see you here. I'm Ruth Ivimey-Cook, and am now living in Cherry Hinton, on the edge of Cambridge, UK.
Many of my friends are scattered around the country, which makes a comfortable car rather useful. I enjoy travelling in general - discovering new places and seeing new people. I enjoyed the wild beauty of of Suffolk when I lived there a while ago, and more recently have begun appreciating the tender pleasures of the Cambridgeshire landscape.
You can find out something about myself and where I live. I have also developed a web-based conference papers database called paperdb. This is as part of my job as the webweaver for the www.wotug.org site.
I'm also enjoy listening to music, and enjoy classical pieces by Tchaikovsky and Mahler as well as classical guitar and Jazz. Other musicians I like include Jean-Michelle Jarre, Vangellis, Chris De Burgh, Enya. I also love Everything But The Girl (EBTG). and last but not least there's Runrig. Recently I've also been listening to much more of Graham Kendrick's wonderful contemporary gospel songs.
