Interesting indeed Mark, I had no idea this free learning resource existed. I have actually signed up for the Wellington course, with a real desire to learn...let's hope work commitments permit me to allocate the 4 hours a week! Owen

I signed up too, more in hope than expectation. Of finding four spare hours a week, that is :?

A very tempting course! I wonder if colonials can apply?

All the best,

Thanks for the tip off. I've signed-up too (I've researched in the Wellington Archive before - watched like a hawk by a librarian).
Make much of your horses!

I am tempted myself, but my writing for book number two is taking up most of my spare time. Maybe at a later date though.
