Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Hi Again Just watched an episode of "New Tricks" [S3E3] in which a book, The Home of the Blizzard [BEING THE STORY OF THE AUSTRALASIAN ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION, 1911-1914], provided the clue as to who done it. Sadly not PD in death+70 countries. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6137/ New Tricks!! S3 woul...

35 The titles in the MW seem to have a numbering error starting with this section (36?). 11:13 There are repeats in the outro. Hi - Thank you for spotting those. Intro after Outro.... It should be cleaned up now I hope. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/endeavourjournal_35_banks_128kb.mp3 11:22.6...

Re: SOLO - The Endeavour Journal of Sir Joseph Banks by Joseph Banks - annise

Thanks, David; and great to hear from you Anne. The fresh summer veggies sound great.

Otherwise just plenty of flat leaf parsley; and I will have spinach by the bucket loa...

It's hard to remember that it is summer in Chicago, hence outdoor dining. My granddaughter had a rooftop glamping sleep-over with friends last night your time.
