Things I Think About, by Peter Bowditch

Friday Shopping Poetry

During 2013 I posted a series of rewritten songs and poems to Facebook celebrating grocery shopping in Katoomba on Fridays. I’ll leave it up to you to guess at the originals. Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach? Shall I shop at Coles or Aldi, or spend a bit […]

One Hit Wonders

I occasionally spend Saturday finding related music videos and posting them to Facebook for the entertainment of my numerous (and patient) virtual friends.

“How To Connect To The Internet” rereleased.

In 1997 the best selling non-fiction title in Australia was a slim volume from Choice Books (at the Australian Consumers Association) aimed at people who wanted to know what this new thing called “The Internet” was all about.
