Re: SOLO The Queen's Necklace by Alexandre Dumas - annise

Hi Anne and David -- I think I've found what might be an interesting book to read, continuing my interest in Antipodean travel and natural history. It is Matthew Flinders' "A Voyage to Terra Australis Vol. 1". Have you read it Anne? (I heard a reference to it when listening to an eAudiobook of Di Mo...

Hi -

And here's Chapter III (Section 05)

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/queensnecklace_05_dumas_128kb.mp3
15:49.8, 89.3 dB.

The new computer has seems to be interfering a lot less with the microphone -- and the old Blue Snowball is still working as it should, plug and play. Yay!

Thanks

Re: [SOLO] - Travels in New Zealand by Ernest Dieffenbach - annise

Yes I am using the image and your summary is fine I think the image really made me realise something that I knew but hadn't thought about - we may be very alike as countries in many ways but geologically we are very very old and you are very very new. Anne Thanks heaps Anne. :) NZ does have some ol...

Re: [SOLO] - Travels in New Zealand by Ernest Dieffenbach - annise

Hi Anne - I'm just finishing off the penultimate chapter of this Volume of Travels in New Zealand... Do you want to do the cover? I have found a cover image that will fit well with what I plan to do with the Intro, which is to start with a short quotation from the book in which he describes his firs...
