I had a Google alert today, for one of the other "Toby Philpott"s that I have come across on the Web and his Liberal Legend blog. I believe he could have studied or taught at Durham University when I happened to pass through for a British Juggling Convention in the 90s, possibly the closest we got to meeting. He then spent some time as a small business advisor in China, and ran for Parliament on the Lib-Dem ticket.
I know these things thanks to Google, which I have almost swamped with my web activity, my Star Wars connection, etc. I usually have the top ten hits at least.
I know of a third Toby, rather younger, who took some photos of a bluebell wood for his local paper.
Maybe only three of us...not as prolific as Dave Gorman...
Still, maybe bibliophilia runs in the family - I came across this entry in a library website:
