Well, I guess you are wondering what this blog is all about…?
Put simply, it’s a collection of words and pictures from my life, past and present.
UNCLE SPIKE – Just a page of blurb about me.
BLOG GUIDE – Err… you’re already here on this page 🙂
Opinion – bits on all sorts of subjects that make me tick
Daft Spike – I’m not as ‘growed-up’ as my numbers would suggest
Philosophy – thoughts from the ‘inner Spike’
Tunes I Love – music that has been my guiding light over the years
Guest Writing – my occasional adventures into writing on other blogs.
True Tales – true stories to read with a mug of cocoa
Non Humans – mostly on pooches and chooks
Spike Jnr – our bilingual smartarse lovable nerd
Daily Life – stuff as it happens
For a while I had fellow bloggers pop along to share their world as a guest blogger. Although not a regular feature, if you fancy being on Uncle Spike’s Adventures, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
BLOGGERS UNITE FOR PEACE (#BloggersUniteForPeace)
We live in a time when little can be taken for granted in terms of our peace and security. Here in Türkiye, we are constantly reminded of that fact, with hostile forces forever closer to our borders, as well as within.
These posts are either of my own volition, or a collective effort by normal, everyday hard-working bloggers who just want peace in the world. We hail from across the continents, speak different languages, of varying ages, professions, and religious and cultural backgrounds.
Posts related to my travel adventures over 35 years. I have seen many places in this world, either as an aimlessly wandering globetrotter, or just doing the ‘holiday’ thing for 1-2 months a year.
I enjoy photography – although very much as an amateur hobbyist. For almost three years, I entered images for the WordPress photo challenges, Wordless Wednesday, Macro Monday, Flower Friday and other similar ventures.
These are posts related to my escapades as a farmer, builder, gardener, and home kitchen chef. Over the years my life in rural Türkiye has provided me with a collection of mildly noteworthy calamities and triumphs.
AWARDS – my views on why I prefer to be an ‘Award Free’ blogger.

All posts have ‘comments’ open as like you, I always love to hear from readers and followers alike. However, as the comments are of course ‘public’, if you prefer, I’m contactable via email at email@example.com
