oh! ok, not too bad thanks. which is just as well cos anytime now we will go into that black ice/ sloppy snow weather. my physio is a saint and a magician.

Many of my students here are confused by references to ice, because they haven't experienced it as an everyday reality.

that is pretty weird.
i have had some interesting times trying to engage students in the concept that there might have been a time before mobile phones.
one devastating time i told them that if they all went to WW1 in a pals regiment i would be surprised to see more than two of them return.
it is hard to get paradigmatic stuff across, but amazing when you can witness some kind of realisation. the kids i were teaching at the time were mainly bangladeshis who had really only been to the few streets round the college and back to bangladesh. one time i was telling this kid that if he went to a provincial uni he could dye his hair blue all term and then dye it back to black for the holidays and his mum would never know. sweet.
