In light of Sam getting a poem published, I thought it would be interesting to hear about your 15 minutes of fame.
My main one was I was chosen to go to Hyde Park (in Sydney) last year for the launch of the new Modern History course for high schools. I had to talk about my great-grandfather's participation in WWI. Anyway, I was interviewed by then NSW Premier Bob Carr and then Deputy Premier Andrew Refshauge. I was also interviewed by Channel 9 and got on the six o'clock news. I had people saying to me for ages 'Hey, I saw you on the news.'
Feel free to divulge your tales
