I am just back in Paradise after 48 hours in the snow of the foothills helping a mate.
Just prior to leaving on Sunday I posted on Sweden and my opening para suggested Confusion between that Nation and Norway.
The point of the post that I published without Proofreading, was the Link to an excellent post on her Blog by Lindsay Mitchell who was inexplicably to me, given an un-winnable position on the ACT list but is a gem when discussion is raised on Welfare in NZ and she is always a good read on Politics in General.
I fell into a similar hole when under time constraint days earlier I posted a link to an item at Homepaddock, on that occasion I was chastised for a really horrible sentence construct.
Surprisingly on both occasions my main critics were members of the clearly very numerous Anonymous family. The sloppy posts were poor form and would have detracted from the importance of the posts I was linking to, so for that sloppy work I apologise.
Following a heads up from a fellow member of our team which I only received on regaining access to the net, I agree my post did portray a clear confusion between Norway and Sweden. My lack of clarity referred to the kinship of two neighbouring countries who share a border of some
1500 Kms. The careless linkage was no more the feelings of kinship I felt with the shootings in Tasmania that is still quite raw in my Psyche.
I sincerely hope my careless writing and poor form did not stop anyone from taking the trip to L M"s thought provoking blogsite.
My apologies to my fellow bloggers at No Minister for my lapse in standards.
