Amusing school closure notices

There is quite a variety in the notices that appear on the Bucks County Council website saying which schools are closed. As they are very transitory I thought I'd capture some for you.

"Enjoy the snow!" appeared seven times.

Some were very boring and studious:
All students should have access to MyMaths and SamLearning accounts and we recommend that they, Y11 in particular, make use of these today.

Some were studious but more lighthearted:
So stay at home – but don’t be a stranger, Study hard and check the VLE, There’s a lot to do, just go and see!

Some were just fun:
Another day of snow and disruption. Another day of snowmen, sledging and snowballing.

Or poetic:
School is closed again today, This snow just will not go away, It's really causing so much sorrow - Let's hope it will be sunny tomorrow!

I've consulted with the puppy from school; He loves the snow but is no fool! Temperature dropping: ice on the way, Alfie, the lab says, 'Open? No way!'

Or inventive:
Details of a snowman building competition at the Beeches can be found on the school website.

I got a spam comment in Chinese, but I thought I'd post the translation here, without the spam link:

Personal fortunes in the first is always the most profound, and sometimes even people's heart forever into the insulation.
ha, a blog of mine just got that, too

I think the spammer meant to say something about memories warming a heart

Cardboard seven inch tablet stand

When I got a Playbook I wanted to use it to listen to BBC iPlayer while doing the washing up. So I made a cardboard tablet stand out of the cardboard you get with new shirts.

Recently I came across a video by Jude Pullen showing how to make a right angle joint with card and it inspired me to share what I'd done, via a PDF rather than a video though.

The PDF below is for a Playbook but I would have thought that any seven inch tablet, like the Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus 7 would fit. If in the unlikely event they are more chunky than the Playbook, you can just cut the slot wider. It's probably more sturdy if you make it out of a corrugated cardboard.

20 years of blogging: First post

Back in 1999 it mostly cost money to run a blog (from what I can remember). You had to sort out your own hosting. Then Dave Winer made on offer on his blogging platform editthispage.com for a 60 day free trial, so I was away. So what was my very first post? What words did I choose to post for all on the internet to see?
 23 December 1999 I'm stil trying to decide what to do with this. Click on the skull to add your suggestion. Oh, that's not very good is it. A typo in the second word too. The URL was morrissfamily.editthispage.com. (I think. Everything I say could be unreliable, because it was a while ago.) I also created an FAQ page that day:

Who are the Morriss family? We are just a normal family with a dad who likes exploring the internet.Why don't you have more information? Because I'm not sure want I want to do with this site. I think there are no typos there. The idea was that I would share family news. Come back in January to see what my next post was.

20 years of blogging: fourth post

4/1/2000 Things are moving We've had the letter from Wycliffe about "raising support".  They want us to aim that 25% of our income comes from other people by the end of a year, and 50% by the end of two years.  Other news: I've officially asked for voluntary redundancy Spoiler: after 4 years of trying I didn't even get to 20%, so I was paid a salary after all.
