6/8/2015 – week 3 already?

Morning all, well it’s been a frenetic but exciting start to the term. On friday we had a meeting of the Hawkes Bay SCT cluster group and that is always a good motivator to get engaged with educational issues! Many thanks to Rachel for hosting the meeting and Adie for both taking minutes and providing ongoing encouragement.

Onto the three things for today! I have a real mixed bag of treats on offer….

1. This cool History website has tons of goodies….for instance I took the “Which historic badass were you in a past life” quiz and turns out I would have been Boudica/Boadicea! Nice. (pic not related…that ain’t Boudica)

I reverse google image searched this and found out it’s Ching Shih, who was Chinese, and one of the most badass pirates of all time.

2. Design. Ok, so this site is definitely for the fatcats and not the poor students….no option to throw a mattress on the floor here. But, it’s still a fun site to mess about on.

3. PE? Health? Quite frankly, my reaction time was a bit rubbish. In fact, today I learned I have the reaction time of Theodore Roosevelt. ie, a dead man. I’m gonna have a cup of coffee or three and try again…..But on the plus side my memory was scintillating. šŸ™‚

And finally, I know it’s technically a 4th thing, but I don’t think many people will be interested in this….however, if you are Warren and you scrolled down this far….here’s an extra nugget of Beatles gold just for you…

  1. That Fabs site is a Beatlemaniac paradise. Bit disappointed he didn’t mention that the person doing the count down in A Day In The Life is actually Beatles roadie, Mal Evans (the great Mal Evans who came to a bizarre end). But wow – what a treasure trove of anal retentive detail. LOVE IT!
