@LouiseASaunders It’s true, though I never know quite how much of the “options for listening” I should go through.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LouiseASaunders

And… the radio spot is done. I’ll cross-check my recording and post the audio very shortly.

via Janetter for Mac

I have that problem too, @shiftkey @domknight @702sydney, so try the other players off abc.net.au/radio/listen-o…

@ApostrophePong … and not falling into the trap of worrying about it having to be A Big Thing. Mind you, I’m pathetic at it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong The trick is to just put aside a little time each week, and just write about whatever’s on your mind that day…

@DrRachie @FlanneryDavid @GreenJ I know @ApostrophePong had some great shots of them somewhere too, but I suspect on his old blog.

GreenJ i like this new notion where making an inappropriate expense claim is just fine, so long as you pay it back when sprung.
