Start as you mean to go on - this advice is often attributed to the author Dr Seuss though I have never actually found the original statement. Another personal favourite of mine from the good doctor’s archive of sayings is:

Particularly apt for me right now, as I welcome you to a different view about my hometown of Adelaide. If you click here or on About (above) you can read about the kind of tone and content you can expect to read here frequently.
Yes, the emphasis will be on Adelaide. But I’ve always been curious about how other cities and communities live because I believe that gives our lives here better context. From Adelaide it takes us such a long time to get anywhere else and visitors really have got to want to come here to make the effort.
UK singer songwriter Billy Bragg once said in an early 1990s radio interview:
Talent is borrowed, genius is stolen.
It’s a philosophy I’ve lived by for many years. You’ll read my own generated content as well as attributions and credit to many others. I’ve been an editor for more than a decade – curating content comes naturally, so expect to be offered lots of links to things I’ve found across the internet, that I hope you find as relevant, useful, surprising and interesting as I do. I love lists and appreciate tips and suggestions. So feel free to send me a link to anything you think I’ll be interested in.
