Podcast overload

I recall when I used to feel overwhelmed by the quantity of blogs I had to read and comment on.  Some how, with some natural attrition, I have overcome the overwhelm.  Now, my issue is podcasts! Figuring that some people may be seeking some podcast recommendations, I thought I’d list them. By ABC (Australian Broadcasting …

So, it’s meant to be Plastic Free July, but I was a eager beaver? Or figured it might help others to start analysing before it’s too late for you readers to get on board. On Friday 1 June, I started collecting all my waste that wasn’t destined for the worm farm or recycling.  I didn’t …

A new job

First – it takes 2 hours to download my past content and the NBN (the government’s National Broadband Network) isn’t stable enough that this hasn’t dropped out on any of my countless attempts.

Pottery Wheel classes
