A retired granny who went back to University to do a Ph.D. and got it in December 2016 and who is also interested in fitness, weight training and lifelong learning. The "road" part of my name "roadmonkey" comes from the subject of my Ph.D., which was road safety engineering. Monkey came about because at the time I wrote many of these articles, I was "monkeying" around with the actual subject of my thesis.
