The Horse's Mouth - Ezine reader's index
"The Horse's Mouth" is an online magazine - the ramblings of Graham Ellis.
I'm very fortunate to come across a lot of interesting people in my work,
and they inspire me to think and to write. You'll find a mixture of
technical tips on the subjects we teach, things we have learnt from our
own website and wider, and pictures, thoughts and wider comment.
The beauty of the net is that you can search and read as much - or as
little - as you like.
You can even add your comments
if you wish; although we can't offer you the
same anonimity nor a "freedom of speech", I'm going to encourage you
to post of views that don't agree with mine and
only in what I consider to be exceptional circumstances will I remove
or modify your material.
