Images from a computer firm

I live in a little village called Kerry near Newtown in Powys with my wife (Powys County councillor for Kerry) and two sons. I am keen on computers (I need to be), motorcycles and Mid Wales. I am from South Wales. Born in Penygraig in the Rhondda in 1945, brought up in Ebbw Vale (Heads of the Valleys) at my parent's home, my father was a pharmacist of the old school - his claim to fame was that the Pontypool front row used to use gallons of his horse liniment. Moved up to Mid Wales to work for Laura Ashley's in 1976 as a factory manager. Opened their Oswestry factory in 1976 and restarted the soft furnishings. Moved to Carno as General Manager Garments in 78. Left in 1985. Started doing consultancy in 1985 as HRJ Powys and after various ups and downs including a period as an IT officer with Powys CC I restarted as Howys Ltd in 1995. We sell repair, network and upgrade computers from a WDA unit in the Vastre estate in Newtown. We are also an Internet Service Provider in a small way - www.mid-wales.net.
