Samuel’s Blog Year In Review: March 2006

We’ve finally made it to the last Year In Review post for the year, which will undoubtedly come as a relief to a person [1] who called the Year In Review series “seemingly endless”.

Anyway, March 2006 was a very interesting month, and it started with Senator Ian Campbell having a rather odd off-topic comparison of a bird called the “Latham’s snipe” and former Labor leader Mark Latham [2].

2CC upgraded their equipment [3], bringing joy to their many night time listeners.

Before starting the new series of Samuel In Dolgnwot, I provided a thorough recap of Series One. [4]

ACTION decided to have a half-baked open day [5].

I then started series 2 [6] of Samuel In Dolgnwot

The delivery of the White and Yellow Pages phone books was much more tasteful than previous years. [7]

A teacher decided to change an assignment [8] one week before the due date.

I started my footy tips for the year [9], they were not good, I only correctly tipped one winner from seven NRL matches [10]. Thankfully they have improved.

3AW released the details [11] of their Commonwealth Games Coverage.

I started a new podcast [12], called Editorial Echoes.

I analysed some Australia Post statistics [13].

I had a dream about Telemarketing, House Visiting, Cheap Furniture Con Artists [14].

As is to be expected in March, the sunrises were lovely [15].
Canberra Sunrise

The spammers started writing novels and distributing bits of them in their emails [16].

I explained some of the automation [17] behind Editorial Echoes, and became frustrated when I encountered a building designed by a maze enthusiast [18].

There was a storm in Canberra which produced some heavy rain.

The underground cabling stories continued, with a photographic tour [19].

Editorial Echoes was canned [26].

2CA/2CC put out a job advertisement for a senior journalist [27].

I got a phone call from the principal of Campbell High School [28].

I showed you a picture of a scarecrow laundry robot [29].

Southern Cross Ten broadcast the Black Opal [30].

The website was crossed out for some readers [31].

With the March episode of Samuel’s Persiflage out of the question, I announced a bigger than normal April episode [32].

Breakfast on 2CA changed hands [33].

Kim Beazley made a fool of himself when he visited a bus depot [34].

And that was March 2006. Tomorrow we will be celebrating the birthday of Samuel’s Blog, which should be fantastic!

Looking forward to it. Other may refer to your Year In Review as seemingly endless, however, I refer it as incredibly interesting and not long enough. Good Work Samuel.
