OK “everyone” has had their say on the iPad, and the fuss is dying down it’s time for us introverts having had a chance to think ;) to start discussing the iPad and the future. Let’s grant that (according to those who’ve seen and used them) iPads are great for all sorts of purposes, except […]

Previous posts in this review: The Invention of Hebrew: First impressions The Invention of Hebrew: first and last paragraphs The Invention of Hebrew: Chapter One The Invention of Hebrew: Chapter 2: What was the alphabet for?

Shopping, cooking, buying tickets… her list of procrastinatory activities are different from mine. But today I am procrastinating too! I’m supposed to be […]

April has just been declared Audio Month in the Bulkeley household, as well as starting nearly daily podcasts on the Essential 100 Bible readings over on 5 Minute Bible, I have just completed another – rather different – project I am rather proud of :) I’ve been reading Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories for Librivox.
