"Flight of the Bumblebee" has an urgency that makes me wonder if Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov had ever seen a bumblebee.

Bumblebees aren't urgent. Bumblebees are oops

I'm off to Criccieth tomorrow to stay in a gorgeous old house for a three day course on . I cannot express how jazzed I am. I just hope the weather holds.

Damn I hate the term "fake news" it was started by a fascist and to refer to anything which opposed him.
It is now used as an umbrella term for lies, misinformation campaigns and propaganda. When each one of those requires handling differently.

Are there any or meeps out there? I'd love to hear from some fellow folks. I'm currently into my... *counts on fingers*... third year of with the Open University, doing my MA in Creative Writing. I'm due to finish in October. I love writing, but I'm struggling to motivate myself for the course. Anyone else felt the same?

Genuinely excited to be going to a meeting on data justice and civil society tomorrow, with work.

Use computers for good, not evil! :D

This unimposing building allowed me to take out three #books at a time twice a week, until I finished the books in the children's section and they gave me five tickets that let me take out any book. I wouldn't be who I am without this service - please support your local #library. #LlanilltudFawr #LlantwiMajor

I swear half the battle of diy computer maintenance is knowing what to google.

TIL Those lists of recent programs you get when you right click an icon on your taskbar are called 'jump lists'.

I'm working through Coursera's Learning How to Learn course and it's incredible. Totally going to incorporate it in my own teaching and learning journey.

Their obsession with a 200 year old culture is also weird. I get why they might preserve the buildings etc, but why the clothing style and fashions? It's 200 years later - no one has managed to figure out how to make new cloth, or garments? The teenagers aren't rebelling and getting mad when their dad is like 'WEAR THIS 200 YEAR OLD SHIRT"?

I'm turning the red rocket into a little castle, with walls, towers, and hopefully, some kinda library come workshop. Castles are usually made of wooden pallets, stacks of tyres and rusting metal pipes, right?

I believe this is called 'wasteland chic'.
