Thank you, Ele!

Ele, who writes the excellent blog Homepaddock, mentioned my blog on National Radio in New Zealand today, and said some very nice things about it. Thank you, Ele.

You can listen to the section here – Critical Mass – or you can download an MP3 and listen to it at your leisure: Critical Mass MP3. The clip is about 33 minutes long, and Ele’s section is right at the end.

If you’ve come by In a Strange Land because you heard the story on Radio New Zealand, you might also like to visit Ele’s blog, Homepaddock. She has an eclectic mix of politics (from a moderate right wing perspective), parenting, food, recipes, good places to eat, rural living, comments on current events, “Today in history” with pictures and links, a Monday quiz, and reports on how she has fared in the NZ History quiz and the Dom Post politics quiz each week, amongst other things. She puts up several posts every day, so there’s always something fresh to read there.

Update: A selection of posts from the past, that people visiting for the first time might enjoy.
