October 2016

Another month and Christmas coming closer.  As the northern hemisphere experiences Autumn, we in the southern hemisphere enjoy the delights of Spring.


Each month Byter Brett R sends me a list of the special days for the coming month.

Just as Donald Trump said he was too much of a gentleman to mention certain things in the debate, with Huillary Clinton, which he then described as not having said, I will say that I am too much a gentleman to say that Brett heads his emails "That time of the month (again)." 

Brett's lists follwo, the daily ones being interactive, just click on.

Thanks Brett.

Regular readers will be aware that I am a member of a weekly trivia team called Lazarus, although sometimes we change our name for that night for a bit of fun.  Recent examples: Ben Dover, Neil Down, Haywood Jablome, Far Kurnell (Kurnell is a suburb of Sydney), Far Queue and so on.

Trivia organiser and MC, Graham, aka Mr Trivia, also sends a monthly summary of events and his follows as well.

Thanks Mr T.
