Since I have changed my email address for my blog, I am not getting the many emails each day that my comment on other's blogs aren't deliverable, that is people were not receiving an email when I made a comment on their blog. Gattina told me quite specifically that she is now getting emails, so I assume others are too. This is good.
But the world is an imperfect place. Since I have changed to Gmail, I no longer receive notifications when Grace in Perth and River in Adelaide have made a comment. I do go back a few days and check comments, so it is not a big deal, but if they and whoever else I don't receive an email for when they comment, my apologies if I may miss one of your comments.
I had a bit of a laugh today, courtesy public transport impresario Daniel Bowen, who I follow on Twitter. When we lived in Glen Iris, we would catch the Alamein train from Burwood Station to town. Off peak it was a shuttle service and via the tannoy speaker at times when returning from town we would hear, Camberwell Station, change for Alamein.
I walked the old and long gone spur train line to Kew a year or more ago. It wasn't that interesting but there is a link to my walk on the side bar of my blog. The Kew train was also a shuttle service, from where the line diverted after Hawthorn Station. A similar announcement was made at Hawthorn as it was at Camberwell for the Alamein train.
Will it take you seconds, days, a hint, or will I have to explain the humour?
NB, this may only work with Australian accents, no it works for English accents too. Not sure about non native English speakers, including Americans :-P
Say it out loud now, Hawthorn Station, change for Kew. It's a variation on the name of the outlying area of the suburb of Kew, known as far Kew.
