Compost, tall tales, the answer’s the same – just lay it on thick.

I’m Lewis Juckes, and I began preparing this website as something different to do during the coronavirus lockdown. My history is in fact summed up by the tabs along the top of this page. I grew up in South Africa in the 40s and 50s, which included both schooling and University. In the mid-60s there were two years in the Antarctic, with the British Antarctic Survey, both at the base of Halley Bay and in the field several hundred miles inland. Since then I’ve been in Britain, with much of the time in the steel industry. For most of that time I’ve lived in North Yorkshire, and since the turn of the century I’ve been happily retired.

Why the “LMJ” site? Call it laziness – it’s easier to type my initials than my full name.

Golden Wedding Anniversary

For our Golden Wedding anniversary party in late 2017 I prepared some posters, and then a PDF version shown here. It’s a couple of years old now but it gives a good family background. 15/4/20.
