Anniversary

It's been a year since I started this blog and what a tumbledown, rumbledown rockabilly year it's been! To quote The Beach Boys - "Lenin has lived and Jehovah has died..............", my world has taken a few turns and changes too! People now stop me in the pub and ask why this blog hasn't been updated - hiya JW and Clerky and others!

Right now I'm assailed (good word for this time of night) by the sound of deadlines flying past and I'm wondering when we can adopt the metric week - I really need ten days each week and a hundred hours each day. Tennis elbow restricts the amount of typing I can do and sciatica make life a tad stressful and so I'm trying to concentrate on what I have to do rather than what I want to do. On the upside, I've found another City fan in the village and we're talking about starting a Bishopsbourne City Fan Club!

You'll have noticed a new link on the right, Amnesty International are looking at Internet censorship and it's worth checking out this new initiative - those of us who rely on the web need to make sure that we know who controls it. We've discussed censorship in the classroom but we need to be aware of how it impacts the wider world.

All up things are good in the world of Gibson and the courses I teach are drawing to a close so life should become a little easier soon - I can but hope.

Greetings to everyone and happy anniversary to me :-)

7 careful considerations:

Happy Birthday to your blog. Mine will be one year old in 2 days time.

Echo Mouse said...

Happy Birthday to your blog from me too :)

You know what's weird, you and Kat both only blogging for one year. I must have found you guys shortly after you started. But I remember thinking when I found you both, man these people have been at this forever and I wish I'd found them sooner!

Anyway, put your health, real life and all that first. Have a happy week or month or summer, depending how long you're here vs. away. :) Oh and huge thanks for that Amnesty link. Right after I get done with the stone circles link from Kat (yayyy!!) I'm going to check that out.

Well done NG for blogging for a year! Not sure how long I've been reading your blog but I always find it interesting, and thought provoking. Love your clever use of words. Hope the achey bits get better soon and life slows down a tad. Have fun :o)

(grumbles) either my computer is acting up, or blogger is ... so let's try this again ...

Happy Anniveryary!! (not going to repeat the "wow it seems like I've been reading you so much longer than a year" bit)

Happy Anniversary ! It gave me such a fright to think a year has passed since you lured us up here. I had to go and check. My year is up on 15th June. Grief, where has it gone - woosh ...

Hope your aches and pains ease with the coming of the summer sun.

Hope you will be able to become more 'regular' NG2 with courses coming to a close :-)

Thanks for the Amnesty link - it's certainly something to keep an eye on.
