I have set up my information in a different way to most people who visit.
I don’t need a long introduction; I am just a Lion like you guys and don’t need any special mentions. However, I appreciate people may want to know something about me so tick the box beside any item you would like to tell people about me but feel free to use as much or as little of this as you like.
