Watching Channel Five late news last night I was struck by something odd in a piece about President Obama. The package said it was his first trip to soldiers in Afghanistan since he became president last year, yet the pictures they used were clearly labelled 'library pictures.' The problem here is that the images did contain Obama himself, so how, if he has only just landed in Kabul, could they use library pictures in their bulletin...unless they are pictures of Obama meeting other soldiers...in Iraq?? Something to think about.
So I noticed that most of the Modules Notes stuff has disappeared, thus narrowing down my options for doing some shorthand. At the risk of sounding like a nerd, would it be possible to get some of the 80-100 wpm dictations back or some new ones? (puts on very sad puppy eyes) :D For some reason all I have on my laptop are 40, 60 and 70 wpm passages...not very helpful.
As some of you may know I am back at the Kent Messenger for a while and today met someone very cool.
Today I was asked to go do a video in Maidstone town centre where Kent Police Chief Constable Mike Fuller was walking around "on the beat" with local cops.
You may remember him as a potential candidate for the post of Met Comissioner after Sir Ian Blair was ousted.
For those of us who have ever made excuses about not having done our homework (which lets face it, is most of us), here is an example of when things really do go wrong...
So sorry Kenn and Margaret but the cat ate my shorthand.
