Over at Aussie Bloggers this fortnight’s Carnival of Australia is being hosted. It’s the Anzac Day edition and there’s lots of Australiana in there.
I’ve never been to an Anzac Day dawn service and I nearly went this morning but thought I’d better prepare JJ for it as I would have had to wake him and then explain what it was all about. I think it would be better to do this beforehand rather than at 5am.
My great uncle spent some of World War II in Papua New Guinea and he was always involved in Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services at our school. When the The Last Post played it always brought a tear to my eye and listening to it always made me thing of those that went to war and came back, and those that didn’t come back.
While fiddling with my phone the other day I found the recording feature so I’ve mucked around with it. Of course it records files in some proprietary format that most software doesn’t recognise but I found some software that converted it to MP3 format.
Here it is – JJ and what he did during the holidays (MP3 file, 236kb, one minute duration). He says something in about one minute that could have taken 10 seconds and this is what I have to put up with all the time. Not being a really patient person it’s really hard not to say – just get to the point will ya?
One thing I’ve never really done on this blog is to ask you what you might like to ask me to write here. So, now’s your chance. Do you have any burning questions for me? Is there anything you’d like to see covered here?
I’ll be away from the computer for a day or so. I hope all you Aussies enjoy your long weekend.
