I'm from High Wycombe, UK. (Near London.)
When I'm not playing chess, I'm often at my allotment: https://twitter.com/DavidMorrisHW
I usually take skulls as they appear, not because I want the points, more because I don't like excessively slow games. Likewise opponents who insist on using 100% of their time allowance for every move. I just resign those.
