A new name for my website!
Rebels Lane/Adventures of the Mind is now Paths of Thought. New paths and adventures will be sought while those of my past will remain. I look forward to those paths that lie ahead, and hope you will join me on them

In the centre of a new housing development in Southend-on-Sea there now stands this statue of Eric Kirkham Cole, inventor and founder of the company EKCO.

At it's height the company employed some 8000, including myself, mum, dad, two uncles and a cousin.
