Legless fool book

femella parasitus copia

Legless, God, king, guru

Ian Reed (that's me), I was originally from St Helens in Lancashire, England, UK, but I have lived in South East Asia on and off for more than 25 years now, mainly in Thailand, but also for reasonably long periods in Indonesia, Singapore and South Korea.

I decided to create this section of the legless group as a break from my other zones and just use it as somewhere that I can write about some of my experiences and generally about my time and life in Asia in my Asian diaries and it will eventually contain all of the stories of this legless fool in Asia. I also wanted somewhere to show some of my photos and to talk about my life in general. I have a blog that I write in regularly 'The Legless Blog', but I cannot always discuss topics on there that I have very deep feelings about, for fear of maybe alienating too many people and some of the stories that I have to tell are much too long just for a blog anyway. If someone has taken the time to find this site, then maybe this is just what they are looking for.

This Reed in Asia site wasn't really planned for, I just had some extra space on my web server and it was just on impulse that I decided that I needed somewhere to open up a little and let some of my otherwise hidden emotions, thoughts, memories and feelings to be vented. This is a new site and I shall work on it gradually, there are no deadlines, I am not limited for space on here and I have initial plans for many pages with varying topics that I would like to discuss openly, one topic that will always be spoken about on here is beer, because I do love beer. My energy source More beer for legless maybe a gallon

The Asian Diaries Index with RSS feed below:

These diary entries are written in chronological order and each entry assumes that you have read the previous entries, so the best way to understand and enjoy the diaries is to start at the beginning and work your way through them. Because of the amount of time that will be covered in these diaries, it will probably take me about four or five years (More) to arrive at the present date and by that time these diaries will have grown to such a size that I shall be able to publish them in a book format.

Copyright 2008 - 2020: If you are reading these diaries now, then I am quite happy for you to copy them and keep them for your own personal use, but not to distribute them or display them for other people or commercially use them without my prior approval, because the copyright of these diaries belongs to the person who lived through them and wrote them:

I shall be adding to this site over time, so if anyone is interested then please have a little patience and call back here from time to time. One of my very few pleasures in life these days is beer so I shall be occasionally referring to beer, I just wish that beer was the only reason that I am legless all the time absolutely legless now

Thanks for viewing my site, cheers for now, The Legless Fool Always legless
