Visit to Bay & Basin Writers’ Group, St George’s Basin

I recently had the pleasure of being invited to Bay & Basin Writers’ Group, St George’s Basin by my friend and member Pam Damon during my visit to Sanctuary Point.
During the meeting members and of course myself, were encouraged to give a ‘word of the day’, which was then transformed into a short story, not very easy when some of the words were rather challenging, like: ‘mucilaginous, peremptory, formidable and poignant’.  Although it was a nice way to get the brain working.

Organic predictors survey

Organisation: 

Researchers at the University of New England are studying the predictors of organic consumerism in Australia. If you are over 18 years old and have 10-15 minutes to spare, then please take the time to fill out my survey (Link below). The results of this study may provide important insights into organic consumerism in Australia and provide important information for organic produces and retailers to market their products.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
