Back issues are at www.temple.co.nz If you have anything you would like included (FREE!) in the next newsletter, please flick me an email by Friday.

So, should you know of anyone who has a not too expensive 1 or maybe 2 bedroom place to rent in Auckland or a cheap, reliable car to sell please let me know. Thanks! ======================================================================= ======================================================================= Record Production for Commercial Success Clinics with Simon Holloway & Mahuia Bridgman- Cooper from Beaver Studios We’ve had a HUGE demand for the clinics, and the first round is booked out.
