Thinkers (T) Think, and Provers (P) Prove. TP’s do it both. … Do you?

Toon: Pyramid Developments © GJA 1996 All Rights ReservedWelcome to the Home of TP’s, ‘HoBB’ for short. Hope you like the site and that your navigation is good. This is the thinking virtual home of a practical offline home where Thinkers and Provers get together.

Thinkers can have thoughts about everything from the state of the Universe before the Big Bang to the way to adapt a door hinge so that it oils itself before it ever squeaks!

Provers step in and build the self oiling hinge and get the telescopes up into space to look for pre-Big Bang examples.

Thinkers can think up stuff that seems all too amazing, but sooner or later, a prover comes along and starts being practical. But some of us work both ways, and follow through our thoughts into actions; we call these people TP’s.

Everyone needs other individuals or teams around them to get things moving and our web site is online to link the work of Thinkers and Provers so as to make things happen.

I have been to many web sites that try to get people with ideas to ‘LOGIN’ before they ‘match’ them with others who have registered, but most of these subscriber sites are run by automated software that cannot pick the gems. Here, if you contact me, then I see what you send and email you back; so if you think that the time is right to start moving yourself or one of your ideas forward, and you could do with a ‘TP’ around, let me know.

And if you are an ever-practical Prover, here to discover the ideas of interesting Thinkers, then mark this site and get in touch with us whenever you feel like it as we nurture the gems of thought that become the stems of reality.

Build it yourself

just one example of a hose but not a template


When did we request that houses should look similar? If we are wearing a new exclusive garment at a party and someone walks in wearing the same thing we hate it. So why do we buy house designs that look like our neighbours?


An ever increasing amount of the built environment is ‘put together’ in a modular ‘lego’ manner. This is the same for offices, factories and housing. The result is that you can often be in the suburbs of one city and not recognise it from another.

It’s hard enough to ensure the environment is treated with care and attention to local conditions, both societal and natural, but when one local condition mirrors the next, nothing feels that unique and special.

So long as a plan works, it might not feel so bad being ‘slotted in’ to it. But for when plans goes wrong, and this has been known, we need to be able to improvise thus know how to flex both in mind and body. At the HoBB, we work around the unexpected and encourage our friends to experience working with us. We delight in getting a lot more jobs done, we create fine food, and everyone enjoys the good company.

It’s also a good opportunity to get out into the country and see the stars at night, to have chats in the kitchen and ideas round the fireside. There’s every truth in the saying that ‘many hands make light work’ and we have plenty of artistic projects to have fun with every year so let us know when you are fit for the challenge and come and see us.
