Here’s to you, Granddad

2014-03-26 10:30 7 comments | 2019 views

His grandfather’s been dead for nearly 16 years, but on every day that goes by David Moseley cherishes his memory more and more.

 
David is a Rhodes graduate (BA Cstl Drght) who rejected a life of news reporting by absconding to the comfort of SI where he was Features Editor. He later moved to Men's Health in the guise of Features Writer where no rapid was too large to ride or building too tall to leap (off), moving from that cushy job to rather face the abusive rants of News24's users. David likes: polar bears, reading and writing, polar bears that can read and write. David dislikes: hadedas. My goodness, the noise.
