Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I am not, however, going to replace the disintegrating plastic bag that was in one of my […]

Brickbat and bouquet

Recently our postal service changed its approach to postage charges and delivery times, to the point where it now seems that Australia Post may have become a short-term, random-duration parcel and envelope storage facility. It is a complete mystery what they do with the mail in the new system, which involves 2-5 extra days between posting […]
