British Winter / The Dark Ages :/

Gah! This stoopid weather sucks! It's dark when you get up . .and it stays that way all day!
Ahhh . . how we love the British winter. We're all broke and we're groping around like moles in our holes :/And, of course, we'll all become deliriously happy just cos some 'royals' are getting wed', next year. Tbh, I'm sick of that story already . . and it's on'y been 24 hours!

Appreciating Teachers

' Tonight, a teacher is preparing lessons to teach you, or your children, while you are relaxing and watching T.V. In the minute it takes you to read this, teachers all over the world are sacrificing their own time for your - or your children's - literacy, prosperity, happiness and future. It's Teacher Appreciation Week. Re-post this if you are a teacher, love a teacher, or appreciate a teacher.'

I worked as a teacher for ten years & I know this to be true. The vast majority of teachers do their very best for the students in their charge. There are some teachers, of course, who should never be allowed anywhere near impressionable young minds; they tend to be mean-spirited, lazy, vindictive and inadequate. Teachers are drawn from a broad cross-section of society and, like all other professions, there will always be a few "bad eggs" who stink the place out.
