Godfrey's Hobby Blogs: Writing for both Pleasure and Profit!!!


Among of my main hobbies are reading (and writing) fiction and non-fiction works; watching French movies (I am fluent in basic French from living and working in Geneva and Paris); fortnightly visits to Odeon and Cine World cinemas to see blockbusters; watching TV documentaries on science, travel, history and geography subjects such as on Discovery, National Geographic, Animal Planet, Quest and Yesterday TV documentary channels etc; reading about human evolution; cooking delicious food from scratch; exploring, tinkering, hacking, rooting, jail-breaking Android phones / iPhones and building simple computer programming database app projects with SDK tools for X-code (iPhone), PhoneGap(Javascript ) and Eclipse (Android). I take each one here and use my writing skills to blog about them in detail.

Welcome to Godfrey's Hobby Blogs, free to read and enjoy!

Part 1. A Briton's view on French Cinema
What so special about movies with French Stars?

Part 2. Timeline of Mankind
This is a fascinating timeline of human evolution came from the various data I have been collecting for 10 years, while working at the United Nations WHO Library in Geneva and UNESCO in Paris, between 2003 and 2004. In the old magazines section of the library one day during my lunch break, I came across an old January 1988 issue of Newsweek magazine. It was about somebody called Mitochondrial Eve. All 6.7 billion people alive today have inherited the same Mitochondria DNA from one woman who lived in Africa about 200,000 years ago; she has been called Mitochondrial Eve. It was her descendants who were among the second wave of modern humans who left Africa to populate the rest of the world. She was, by one rough estimate, our 10,000th-great-grandmother. This is an ongoing scientific blog I began in 2012, the research work goes back to 2003.

Part 10. The Info Connect Library and Information Science Directory
In 1995, when the Internet was still very young (back then it was Netscape web browser) and Google not yet invented, I began to compile a list of all library-related websites that where begining to show up. By 2005, I had compiled over 1,930 websites. By 2010, I decided that with Google now advanced and Wikipedia available as well, there was no need to update the directory any more, so since 2010 I no longer update the website anymore, but you can still enjoy using it.

I love writing, and will upload my other 9 works when I have the time.
