Saturday

If I don't blog for a day or two I get messages asking if I'm okay so here goes.

Busy right now finishing the project for the course I'd studying this year. It's got to be in soon so I have to get it sorted.

Saturday is an away day in Newport Pagnell (exciting or what??) and I should really be sharing my time between The Ashes and the Manchester Derby so I hope you will all be cheering on England and The Blues! :-)

12 careful considerations:

Is Newport Pagnell ready?!
I'll give you a wave from Milton Keynes :-)

The course looks like it was tailor made for you Nigel. All the best with your project.

AS for cricket - our local went cricket mad this summer and got two teams together and have been playing most Tuesday evenings. Morty has been practising his bowling and was proud of himself because he regained the knack of it and knocked some sticks down.

The downside is that last night in the bar the conversation was dominated by cricket-speak.

The up side is all the teams and partners are having a Sunday Roast next week in the pub so that'll be a good laugh!

That looks like a great course. I think I've heard of the OU but never came across it before. Thanks for that link :)

Heya Nigel! I have just enough of bloggers-ego going that I get a kick out of being blog-rolled! Mahalo (thank you!) Kris.

PS: regarding the pizza, I was very surprised when I got to Italy and found that "pizza" there is entirely different from Stateside pizza, thank goodness.

Hiya BF - I waved as I flew past J13 on the way up and crawled/skated past on the way back. I hope your meeting was better than the one I was at!

Morning - it's a cool course, I hope you'll be taking courses that start with an eight soon ;-)

EM - The OU are also my main employer right now - and also where my degree is from :-)

Kris - loved the photos on your site and the smiling way you write about where you live. Your site is a tad heavy on big photos though, it's slow downloading even on DSL but worth it! Of course one of the first networks that became part of the Internet was a wireless network down there, it was called AlohaNET (See Lynne? That sort of stuff just sticks in my head! :-))

I've only just managed to complete a course that starts with a three Nog! Seeing as five years of TMAs have been, according to my tutors, rather 'creative' I'm doing A215 in 2006 -'Creative Writing' Here's the link but I don't know how to make it live in the comments thing.

You make it live by using HTML Morning (And don't let me hear you say that you don't know how to do that because I simply won't believe you! :-))

That course looks interesting and I'll throw it on the pile. I have another E8** to do next year (assuming I pass this year) and then I can chill with some UG level courses. I fancy AZX103 (or whatever it's called) but I might even cross to the dark side and dabble with DD100!

Morning-Loves-It said...

Dabble indeed! I think you'd like the one I'm just finishing DD304 'Understanding Cities' as you are a global kind of bloke and have plenty of opinions and cool at researching. I even managed to get to use George Monbiot's blog as a source in TMA and got a tick.

I am ignoring the reference to HTML. ;-)

Nogbad said...

Funnily enough I had a look at DD304 when Cally and I went to MK for the Open Day. I seriously think I must start at a lower level on DD courses as it will rpbably demand a different mind-set.

I also wonder whether I should turn on the other PC and collect my emails yet? I'm avoiding them as they might mean I can't carry on focussing on the Test match (Lunch now so I may grab a sandwich while the guys are having a brew)

Nigel, Aloha.net was one of the first ISP's I ever had. They kept getting bought out and I didn't always want clients to know "where" I lived, if you get my drift, not always an advantage, so I changed ISPs... yes I have heard that before about all the big photos. I usually only do that if I am "travel-blogging," then I dump a bunch of big ones on the post because I'm too lazy or tired to format them. But thanks, I will keep that in mind in the future....

You're in Kent? I just visited there. Sevenoaks was where I stayed.

Hi Kris - I live in Kent and used to work near Sevenoaks. If you click the Bishopsbourne link in the sidebar you'll see where I live.
