How dare you!! Ive spent years learning the use's of the apostrophe and now you want to make all of that redundant. You'll be wanting us to stop using COBOL next. I dont know what the worlds coming to!

Many thanks Ruth.
I'm not sure whether I shall do much more but if so I can see I shall have to get to grips with Audacity after all.

Re: [MULTILINGUAL] First World War Centenary Collection -rut

Here's the revised 'Frontier of civilization' https://librivox.org/uploads/ruthieg/frontierofcivilization_kipling_rg_128kb.mp3 I've used the 'Auphonic' system that was mentioned some months ago because I'm sure it's better that the Goldwave system I've always used. Hope it's OK. Many thanks Mary Ann...

Re: [MULTILINGUAL] First World War Centenary Collection -rut

Hi Ruth Unless my membership here has expired, could I read (from?) Kipling's 'France at War' http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12454 Please. I say from because I rather think the whole thing would be beyond your 70m time limit so perhaps only Ch 1 ('On the frontier of civilization') which would stand...

Re: Most unfortunate phrase in an old novel

But I'm pretty sure it wasn't used that way at all in 1922. Hmm.

Re: What do you feel/do when finishing a project?

Naturally I instruct Steppings to open a bottle of Krug '88 and Anatole to prepare his ris de veau à la financiere, Then I sit in front of the fire in the library and listen admiringly to my recording.
Then I wake up.
