AmeriNZ 393 – Movable barrier

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016The weather is still a barrier—but I managed to move around it. This week is mainly an update on what’s going on, including everyone’s favourite topic, as well as things I talked about last week. Naturally, there’s also new stuff for me and for New Zealand that I talk about toward the end of the episode. The Rugby World Cup – France 2023 runs from September 8 to 28.

AmeriNZ 391 – Winter daze

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016It’s cold—well, I think so, anyway. But, then, as I’ve said many times before, I’m not a fan of winter. I begin today talking about some sad news I received yesterday. I then talk about plans I made for my upcoming birthday. Also, I had a very good weekend.

AmeriNZ 384 – Winter celebrations

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016It’s winter, and we have celebrations: The important one for me is that it was a brilliant sunny today day today. Also, this past weekend was the first King’s Birthday public holiday most New Zealanders will ever have known. I talk about all that first. The King’s Birthday Honours List was also released, and there were some surprises.

Then, I talk about my personal organisation system after using it for three months. Has it worked?

AmeriNZ 382 – Sun!

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016Well, who’d have thought it? We had sun today! Not only that, but sun is predicted for tomorrow and Friday! I am shocked.

Today I begin by talking about why the weather’s been so bad, and how it recently unveiled a new problem I have to deal with. That moved me into related topics, including my organising system, which I’ll come back to next month. Finally, a bit of fun to end the episode.

AmeriNZ 376 – Bad time for a break

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016This year isn’t very old, but so much has happened already! The prime minister resigned, we got a new one, and there have been a lot of bad storms. If I hadn’t already been taking a break, I’d need one now!

AmeriNZ 375 – Year’s end

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016It’s the end of 2022! I took advantage of my last opportunity to record in December and 2022 to do a little update episode. I’m not exactly sad to see 2022 go, but I’m definitely better than I was a year ago tonight. That’s a very good thing.
