Are the virtual presentations recorded? I missed the October 2021 session but having just finished reading "Idling in Green Places" I would like to hear the author's presentation if it is available.

Good morning COG members and COG chat line subscribers.


I am bringing to your attention the free NLA talk below on Thursday week 17 March.  Many of you will be aware that Russell was the virtual presenter at COG’s October 2021 meeting.  So if you missed that very interesting talk, of if you would like to see him present it at a face-to-face meeting, here is your opportunity.
