Welcome to Bob & Mo & Co
Home, sweet home
I hope you're not lost and have taken any route out of wherever you've just been. Maybe you arrived following the selections of an over-zealous search engine. "Where Have I Arrived?" Good question. BobMoCo is split between the more serious Middle-earth Glossary which (like the tale) grew in the compiling, and the less serious, which is where you are now.|
Bob & Mo live in Seaford, a quiet town on the English Channel, but they like it. So do their Feline Family. Bob is a former government official who worked for a quarter of a century in a Department in London. After the London commute he worked in a local firm for 6 years, and is now retired. To keep him out of mischief, he helped out for three years as Youth Fixtures Secretary for Seaford Town FC; his redesign of the club website and efforts to create some useful content seemed to win approval. He and Mo are now engaged with the Seaford Monumental Inscriptions Group, whose website Bob maintains. Computers were thrust upon him. He started by managing a mainframe database project, and first encountered a PC when one was dumped on his desk. Much to his surprise he liked computers and is now on his sixth home PC, though technology - like music, fashion, and much of life itself - still races ahead of or straight past him.

On guard on the garage is Hawkeye The StoneCat. The VaneCat, designed by Mo, is Heathcliff.|
The structure on legs through the side-gate is the Cats' Hut, created with bits of wood and imagination to keep them warm in winter. It has a window and porch, is fully insulated and they use it all year.
There's no gate on the left because Bob reversed through it. It seemed easier to leave it gateless thereafter.
|The house is essentially a brick box, designed in 1948 around a grand piano by two ladies as their retirement home, and so has some idiosyncrasies. The central living room, with its "piano-nook", is acoustically dead - unless you install a couple of 200W amps and wind the volume up to 11. You need a hammer-drill to put a picture-hook in most walls. And originally you walked past the back door to get to the front door.|
