Links from my past


I was having a chat in Second Life with a friend (Carolyn Carrilon .. I'm Grumbeast Nowhere in world) and we were chatting about the 1984 Miners Strike in the UK. so I did a little search and found this excellent site with pics of the Colliery from my village..

Check this out..

This is where I grew up. It certainly brings back memories

Our students rock

Well, the role of a chair is varied and sometimes very frustrating, but what makes it all worthwhile is when you see what some of our learners achieve. I recently noticed one of our Digital Animation students submitting work to her Blog, so I took a look in detail at hers and others, man, it was fantastic too see.

I've included a couple of links to some of the blogs.. please take a look! I've only added a few links, but please use these as jumping points to the other fantastic student work.

Safari woes


After fighting with Safari and it not wanting to post my pic, I thought I'd give firefox and whirl and it worked straight away so you can tell what I'm using now!

So I guess its time to start using the blog. I think I'm going to start another blog so that I can journal a little as my new daughter is born and grows (we're expecting at the end of May!) but I think its better if I keep this one separate.
