I have to say, reading some of the last sections were rather difficult, I had to re-record some parts several times!

Yes, I can understand why. I couldn't see the text by the end of the section. :cry:

It's PL OK.

I hope everything is okay with your wife, Kevin. I'm sorry to hear she's been in and out of the hospital and I wish her the very best.

Section 19 is PL OK!!

My wife unfortunately has one of those intermittent problems, by the time she gets to hospital it's gone away! Probably something to do with a slow heart rate - we're waiting for them to supply a portable monitor.

Anyhow, here's part one of the next part of the Polar journey.

That has to be so stressful and frustrating. I hope the doctors find a solution for her very soon.

20 is PL OK. 21 is downloaded and I will listen in the morning.

Hi Kevin,

There was a portion missing which I've highlighted.

@5:22 This attack was very typical. "I wrote this at lunch and in the evening had a bad attack of snow blindness." ... "Blizzard in afternoon.

Oops, well spotted. Looks like I skipped a line when I read it, and when I proof-read it!
Good job you're keeping a close eye on things. Oh, and I don't know if you noticed, but I
said ZnSO4 just after that mistake, and not ZuSO4, because there isn't an element Zu, and
Zinc sulfate is well known antiseptic.

Hi Kevin,

Section 22 is good to go!! :) Yes, I knew why you had corrected the typo ZuSO4 to ZnSO4.

This has been such an emotional read, do you have something lighthearted picked out for your next solo?

Ah, I was going to mention that when I got nearer the end of this one. I do have
another book lined up, but I wouldn't call it lighthearted! In fact if you did not want
to PL it I would quite understand. It's called 'My path to atheism' by Annie Besant, and
surgically dissects Christianity, which was quite an achievement for a woman at the
end of the 19th century. As a devout atheist myself, I feel it is the sort of book
that should be given wider exposure, but if it clashes with your own personal beliefs,
then I would understand if you did not wish to PL it.
