At almost 5a.m., it's 75degrees, 10% chance of rain, forecast high of 88, low of 72.

Too dark to see what it looks like outside.

Tim! How are you doing? Sun is trying to peep through the clouds but let's hope it's good for us, for a change. I was using iPad in my btec class yesterday and all the kids kept coming up and wanting to touch the screen. They've seen iPods and iPhones but it's only a bigger screen? I can hear all the arrows coming at me for that statement alone! A bit of a distraction, I'm afraid but they settled after a while. I was typing up our farm trip report on pages and they were all making suggestions and correcting me on certain points. It was great! They didn't realise that although they thought they weren't working, they were, verbally! A few lazy clowns in that class I'm afraid and also it's summer term and you know what that means. Hols are on their way and they go into decline quickly. Hard to keep up their interest in science sometimes especially when it's a compulsory subject for all of them. 

I just can't understand this lack of interest in science. When they see all this cool stuff around them, I can't understand why they're simply not itching to know how it all works. I was always taking stuff apart when I was a kid - which I was good at - and then putting it back together - which I was not good at. I well remember the day I took my mother's sewing machine apart...:(

Bad boy! Yes, my brother was exactly the same and so was my dad. His first attempt was a radio but he did manage to put it back again.
I keep telling them that without science, where would all their mobiles, tvs, car gadgets etc... Be without it. One student entered a poster about what would we do without science and he entered a blank page with the message at the bottom - nowhere! Brilliant, I think he won it or got a prize, just for the humour. Some of these kids have no idea about anything, Tim, because they were brought up by tv programs, older siblings and ignorant child parents who don't have a clue either! We teachers have a few suggestions but human rights wouldnt allow it!

Back on the UK side of the pond. The sun is up, it's nice and warm and with a light breeze. SE of London. The met office weather app is handy. .

Yes, but I think it's about time they had an HD version! The portrait look is annoying. Very useful thing though!

Yes, my science dept went to see him in London recently and I had to stay behind and be the supply teacher for those teachers who were going!. Not amused! I'm in btec this year and last year I was in triple science. Is this a trend for me!

Where are you then? I'm in Berkshire, weather is the same.

I've had an awful morning, a whole hour on the phone to my ISP to get them to bloody fix it... Finally Internet is fixed and I can come on here again.
Funny thing is this happens every few months.. Like our Internet settings change miraculously over night... And talk talk then earns all our money just by us calling... I swear they do it on purpose!!!! OKAY RANT OVER.

Plans for the rest of the day... iPad and slight housework along the way... Oh and jumping up to look out the window while waiting for the post man :)
