Business before Pleasure: The Way Too Much Travel Mixtape


I’ve been travelling WAY too much of late and now I’m heading home. A full fortnight in one bed! With my family! Cooler climes (today, I’m told is the first real rainy, wintry day in Melbourne this year)! Aussie rules all weekend! No work (well, almost none)!


Maybe I’ll have time to blog more often!?


When Will Peace Break Out in the Middle East?


Why Do We still Tolerate Child Abuse?


Is North Korea the new black?


Why is half a duck?


Are oranges the only fruit?


Does Donald Trump really exist?


Did you know Santa was married three times?


While you contemplate these questions, have a listen to some songs that have tickled my music bone of late.


Bon voyage!

    Traveling way too much as well. Have not managed to get a forthnight at home, but at least a week. Sorry, but will not contemplate your questions, have my own, but will listen to the record you recommend. Thanks for sharing!
