Sleepy and content - There's something about Mary...

May. 27th, 2011 10:49 pm Sleepy and content

It has been a good day today.

I am still on a high after great day I had on Wednesday. And yesterday, although full of pain, was also productive.

Today I have been achey still, but got by without medication, helped in part by a glass of excellent muscle-relaxant with lunch!

After teaching physics most of the morning, Tim took me to lunch at a nice pub called 'Ye Olde number 3' on the road to Lymm by the canal. The best thing about this was the pool table at 50p a game, though the cajun chicken was good too.

Tim and I decided we were equally good, or should that be bad, at pool. I could only manage two games before I was ready to fall over, but I very much enjoyed them, and the drive back through the countryside afterwards.

I have had a night off tonight: curled up next to Tim with my laptop and sending a few personal emails, reading the internet (though not all of it!), etc.

A friend sent me a presentation they had given to students on climate change, which I enjoyed looking over. I should suggest to him that he make the PowerPoints available to other teachers to use.

Also, I have been thinking about ways to get 'hard core' physics back into my life. More on that another time.

For now, sleep, and looking forward to a relaxing weekend….

I know your getting more into physics and you also have issues with Brian Cox so I thought I'd show you this talk from the London Astrofest in February where he goes far more into detail about the LHC then in his TEDTalk.

Thanks for that.

As I mentioned, I find Brian Cox a bit arrogant at times, but I still believe that he is good for physics, and the popularisation of science generally.
