Just read your post Terri and realised

there was a reason why you chose ‘green’ 😄


SUNDAY STILLS PHOTO:  Up-Close-Personal-to-Green





a pursuit, area of study, or skill to which someone
has devoted much time and effort
and in which they are expert.


During my late teens and early twenties

I spent four years learning how

to class (grade/sort) wool.

And that was my specialty throughout

most of my working life

During the the 1990s I furthered

my expertise in this field

by successfully completing an

Associate Diploma of

Wool and Fibre Marketing.

In the early 1990s we purchased our first computer,

complete with Windows 3.1 and an 80 MB hard drive.

After competing an Adult Education and Training Degree

followed by a Primary Teaching Degree I gained employment

at a local high school where 50% of my teaching load

was teaching computer skills.

After moving to Geelong I spent 6 years in a

Corrections Environment, again

specialising in computer skills.

Book Review-Hunter




 (Timothy Blake #2)


Jack Heath

Jack Heath’s, Hunter was the first I have read of this series and as I had never come across Jack Heath previously it was, obviously, the first of his works also.

One of the first things Timothy Blake, our star, did was to take a bite out of the arm of a villain and then stow said villain in his freezer.  I wasn’t quite sure, for a while, whether our hero was a vampire or just plain cannibalistic.

I found this book difficult to follow and was not interested in the cannibalistic theme.  In the last minute of the book, Timothy meets Fred.  Timothy wants to kill and eat Fred, until…..  And we are left hanging wondering.

Other reviewers give Book #1, The Hangman good reviews and ratings.  I don’t think I will try it and if I do, it will need to be much better before I go searching for a book #3 in this series.


I will, therefore, be joining a select group of 18 who have rated Hunter as less than three stars.

I did listen all the way to the end and,

therefore have rated Hunter as a audio book.

Other Goodreads readers have awarded


an average of

4.08 stars from

519 ratings and

160 reviews.
