Story
Tagline
Writer, Historian, (insert something witty here)
Introduction

I'm a writer with more years’ experience in writing and editing than I admit to in public. I got into desktop publishing way early in the game, and moving into the digital space has seemed like a natural progression.

I spent more than 10 years in the corporate world, in methods analysis (analyzing the way people do their jobs and writing procedures), and was really good at it, but eventually decided to see if I could make a living doing more creative writing, and/or turning a hobby into a business.

I am also a specialist editor for hobbies at The Citizendium, the online encyclopaedia, and I served on the Editorial Council. I also writes extensively about antiques and is a qualified Fine Art and Antiques valuer.

I'm fun, kind, sarcastic and irreverent.

Well, I didn't really think that you woke up every morning thinking, 'I'm brown! How will I face another day?!' +Tosca Johnson At least, I hope you don't. I was just pretty astounded at home many caucasians worry that they are becoming a minority, and yet don't wonder at all about why that should be troubling.

Is this something new, G+? I've been getting a redirect notice when I click on links all morning.

Boy, puh-leese!

It's just after noon, I've just got on line and haven't eaten yet, because when I awoke the generator wouldn't start.

Husband isn't here; I petroled and oiled - nada. Oh, no, tell me it's the battery. Go get charger. Hook up work generator, get it charging. Get coffee because I'm miserable at this point.

Well, all's well: generator's running, charger's back in the solar system, everthing's charging.

I am woman; hear me roar!

You think a little redirect's gonna scare me?  Ha!

A German speaker once told me that "bra" in German is "Stoppemfromfloppen".  I thought that was pretty funny.

I just read one of the most boastfully written 'about me' pages I've had the pleasure of viewing on The Plus.

If there's a line between 'confident' and 'conceited', this woman was well over it.

So why do I mention it? Well, you know where there's that field that says 'bragging rights' or some such?  She had entered the old 'I don't believe in bragging/people have nothing to brag about'.

Oh, Lordy, will I be chuckling about that one for a while!

Trouble is, this wouldn't be a good idea first thing in the morning, now would it?

Just typed this to a plusbuddy, thought I'd share with the rest of you, too:

I'm always impressed by the quality of food and service at the Meridian Cafe. It's a lovely place to sit and have a good meal and a chat. I'm a local, but I would suggest that if you're travelling along the Sydney - Canberra corridor, it's worth the (very short) detour, and I recommend it as a place to break your journey. I'm a breakfast person, and I invariably have Alison's Eggs Benedict, which is excellent, but since I always choose that, I can't tell you how anything else is. For lunch, I like having one of the specials; the pastas are delicious. Our family's current favourite is the lamb burger, which is hard to beat. At $17 it is not cheap, but not out of the ordinary for a good restaurant, either. You can also do some browsing of art and antiques. These range from local artists to major Australian names. An antiques showroom is coming soon. All in all, a terrific place for a quality meal and relaxation.

Alan Weston is personable, honest, professional and creative - everything you could want in a sign maker. We've used Alan Weston Signs twice for our own business signage, and three years running for community projects run by the Tallong Community Focus Group. The street banners he made for the Tallong Apple Day had the whole town talking. An absolutely top notch professional!
