Over on my professional blog, I'm engaged in the second iteration of Blog every day of June, or #blogjune.
But to get some light relief at least for myself, here on my occasional personal blog I'm going to post about non-work stuff, probably recycled from emails or websites.
First off. An amusing email I received from my Dad which I hadn't seen before.
