Hooray! another anomaly within the infamous Part 1 of the question which Those In Total power (the TITs) have completely mis-written, entering the wrong data, pasting bits of another part of the question suggesting this part won't be assessed (oh, yes it will! my babies), and saying the students must analyse 'a table' when there are 2 tables. Now they say the students must analyse four sub-headings, when they mean categories, but there is a table with four sub-headings so the students will probably just do those, la la la! Thank you, yes, the salary will do nicely, and can you employ an effing beta reader instead of mucking up the question on the part of the module the students find most difficult and intimidating!

So sorry. I have no idea what that means, which is very sexy, but it sounds bad for the car and your wallet.

Won my first poker game in two years last night, after going heads up against my father. Even if you consider that I didn't play for 14 months, that remaining 10 months is still a long time for me to go without winning a game.

One of my Volvos broke its throttle cable last night as I was on the way from the Chinese takeaway to my wife who was babysitting our grandchildren.

The AA (Automobile Association not Alcoholics!) were there in 15 minutes, temporarily repaired the cable within 5 minutes at a parts' cost of 10 pence, and the meal was still hot enough to eat when I arrived.

Thank you, AA mechanic.

But I need a new throttle cable soon.

Take heart, TGP, for it will presage a turning in your fortunes generally.

Come up to my office and take a look at my ... classes.

LOL, many of my students in the past took my classes because they had to do an optional extra and ended up so fascinated (with the topic!) they got into that subject as their major area of study.

Now, if you taught maths or Radio, I'd be there in a heartbeat.
I'd have to start too far back with Sociology or whatever it is.

I'll just come up during your office hours...


I've taken a couple really interesting classes not related to my major, I'm just frustrated at the moment!

Frustration is one of life's little tests. If you pass, then you get to go to the next level, if not, then you get to start all over.

That's pretty literal for me at the moment; if I don't pass these classes then I get to retake them next fall...

No no, I want to come to your classes. Aren't they full of cubs talking about technical things about which a pussy cat can go *in a purring voice and while lowering her eyelashes*: "ooh, say that again, Sam, slowly and putting in extra bits about the widgets and wotsits."

LOL, hope you get some more interesting material come up in the classes and some good grades.

My undergrad Department Chairman disapproved of serious students taking too many Anthropology courses: "If you only listen to us," he'd say, "you can only tell us what we told you; we need new ideas and new insights."
He was right, of course, and it holds for every field: the more you know, the better you can do any job. Take as many different courses as you can...

It's true.

I taught a class once to non Sociology PhD students, who were very annoyed at having to learn about other research methods. They wanted to get on with their Brilliant PhD studies. But I said to them, when you graduate, you'll have to engage much more broadly across disciplines. You may even get the chance of a job teaching research methods! so listen and learn all you can. One day (to be honest, I was at a bit of a loss what to do, we'd covered a lot of topics), I said, Let's go round and recap and see what you feel you've learned, how far you've come. Every one of them said how reluctant they'd been to start the course but they felt they'd gained so much from it and some of them were so fulsome in their praise that afterwards I had to sneak off to the Ladies for a rather unprofessional sniffle and cry.

for the lovely students. May you also be blessed with lovely students like you were, who appreciate what learning you bring for them to enjoy.

Estate Agents!

I have just looked through the Property Supplement of our local weekly newspaper.

Apart from disbelieving the prices asked for some unprepossessing houses, I winced at the spelling errors:

"sort after area" for "sought after area". "convenience location" for "convenient location".

But one property's description intrigued me. Among the usual facilities for a large country house such as 7/9 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms (3 en-suite) and 5 reception rooms, a separate 3 bedroom annexe for staff - it has a brewery room.

Who needs a brewery room? The property has extensive wine cellars. Is the brewery for the staff?

For 1.6 million it is yours...

If you have that sort of money I don't think you need to brew your own beer.

LOL, Outlaw mom once told me in great glee about a house nearby for sale which it transpired had a completely fitted out dungeon in it! Nobody had realised what the couple who owned it were up to until the house came up for sale.

Part of the extensive wine cellars would be suitable for conversion.

Even the staff accommodation has a suitable cellar.

When we were househunting for our first home, one house just within our price range was unusual.

The cellars had more floor area than the ground floor and extended 20 feet under the front garden. The attic/loft had more space than the first (US=2nd) floor but most was unusable because of low ceiling height.

IF we could have adapted the attic/loft by installing dormer windows it would have been a suitable house. But we couldn't. The owners were selling because planning permission to adapt had been refused.

40 years on that house now has 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. Later owners raised the whole roof by 6 feet to provide headroom without dormer windows - after six planning applications and one successful appeal.

The cellar now has an extensive model railway layout.
