In Brief – May

If you’re off on a big trip, doing a fund-raising ultramarathon, have relevant stuff for sale, want to share a link, are looking for an expedition partner, or anything else you think might be relevant, then this is the place to shareit. Added to that I toss in any interesting links I’ve come across recently.

If you want to share your link in the In Brief section simply send a 1-line message and link with the subject headerContribution for In Briefand I’ll try to include as many as possible in the next sporadic update.

Thank You

Thank you to the many people who have kindly "bought me a coffee" for just £2.50 as encouragement to keep this blog going. "Yes, I too would like to donate a couple of pounds to this site..!"

  1. Hi Al,

    Re:Commonplace book, I’ve been keeping one for about 12 years now and always provides entertainment when reading back my attempts at angst ridden poetry and is interesting to see how you have changed as a person through the years…

    I’m using something called Evernote now to copy information for review from websites, documents and pictures/video which then gets condensed into my book. It’s very handy and works on anything with t’internet connection including the ubiquitous iphone.
