A beginning

It is customary to say something about oneself.  I think I will leave the process of disclosure to the accretion of future entries, though I might as well announce my particular interests.  These are, in no particular order: law, music, opera, gay issues, and China.  I am forty-something, and live in Sydney.

The title of the blog is arbitrary, save that it is a burr which has stuck in me from my literary education.  You can google it if you wish.  For good measure, I have pursued the association in my username, allowing for one of my most frequent typing errors.

    Sprung! Don’t worry, the secret is safe until you are ready for reciprocal links and so on. Like the name. The content will certainly be of interest.

    I like your blog, Marcellous. (Is it appropriate to say that your blog is “Marvellous”?) Very interesting.

    I wouldn’t mind linking to your blog, but I’m guessing from Ninglun’s comment above that you are not sure about links yet?

    Legal Eagle: links are fine now. I thirst for fame, despite the origin of my blog title (which does indeed have something to do with “Marvellous”).

    Very cryptic…

    I see you do follow China/Tibet issues. I wonder… there is so hard to get relevant independent information, between two extremes, PRC and Dalai Lama exile government. Can you recommend me any good sources? My e-mail is on disposal.

    Dear Sir,

    Please take a look at 306, a gay short film, written, directed & produced by Melbourne born film maker Elliot London.
    Please would you post it on your website and/or share it with your friends.
    Warning: adult minded. http://vimeo.com/32775696

    Thank you

    Hilde.

    Hi, I would love to see more pictures of your childhood in West Pymble. I am putting together a historical display for West Pymble Public School’s 50th Anniversary. Did you by chance attend WPPS?

      I did, but I left to go to Artarmon at the end of 4th class.

      Do they still sing a school song which starts” Work, work and smile/Make this the rule/For each and for all at West Pymble School”?

      If you have the words but not the music, I could furnish the latter. It was written by Marjorie Lukins, parent at the school and also my first piano teacher.
