Thank you and yes, throat is better although I still sound like I’ve been smoking for 40yrs now! :yum:

Did you have vocal nodes? Voice sounded like a singer friend of mine who went through that. I sing (or used to) but never had to go through that. Glad you’re better; you have a good voiceover voice!

I had a right vocal fold implant that was damaged due to radiotherapy I had in 2005 for Tonsil cancel. All good now and yes, might approach Hollywood now! :grin:

Is that an Aussie accent? I’ve always been a fan of it, not to mention the culture.

New Zealand. You know, the ones that won the Americas cup today :relaxed:


I was in the neighborhood NZ would have been my second guess. Beautiful country. I would love to visit WETA!

EDIT: Hey congrats on the cup!

Thanks and thanks. Very proud nation today and not too many people working after waking up at 5AM.

One of the four places I’ve always wanted to go to before I die:

  1. Japan
  2. Australia and New Zealand
  3. Amsterdam
  4. Fiji

Sorry @RitteT - Aus and NZ are bitter enemies, and dont appreciate getting lumped together :wink:

Keen rivals is probably more appropriate. :yum:

I guess it depends on the sport. Also - Both Japan and NZ are amazing places to visit. can’t really talk about Aus, as it is home.

Think this was directed at me; I had them on the same line because of their proximity and the ability to visit both places in one trip.

Sorry about that! LOL
