Weapons grade cleaner, it came in one size

When it comes to cleaning, this powder is weapons grade.  Left in a sink with the exit closed off, this cleaner with a bit of water, will rent the metal surrounds of the sinkhole. I was so pleased to find it on the supermarket shelves again.

Easier to find than Iraq’s nuclear weapons, the granules inside of the container can be dissolved and made up to as strong or as weak as you like. When it comes to cleaning the bathroom, I prefer the cleaner to be as strong it can so as to make light work of it.

With no choice than to buy the bumper pack, I took it off the shelf I was grateful that it had a handle to carry it with.

Bid for world domination, ends in trip to the carpark

Rather funny looking and I’m sure tasting even funnier had we cooked it. This is what happens when you leave a supermarket bought cabbage in the fridge and let it have it’s way. It grows. It honestly looks like a triffid. When the day of the triffids first came out on TV sometime in the 80’s it’s was prime time viewing. In a post-apocalyptic world the Triffids, bred for their oil bearing potential promptly take over the world preying on blinded humans and striking terror in the heart of those not affected. My wife tells me that after having taken it’s photo, it promptly went into the organic waste of our apartment complex. So much for world domination.

The take home message is, MIC(key) mouse

Seeing Professor Stephen Krashen yesterday was quite enlightening to say the least. Fun, entertaining and still very much young at heart, he went on to spin a talk (you could hardly call it a lecture, could you?) for just over an hour.

Pretty good, I had no problems taking in the talk as it was a talk I’d seen on Youtube. Still, for something that he’s spoken about for a little over thirty years. Have things moved and progressed that slowly in the realm of language acquisition theory? Well, for such a contemporary message, he’s gotten good mileage from it. Nice work if you can get it, but I’m not sure if I could get it, no matter how hard I tried.

Comprehensible input this definitely was, and all credit to Professor Krashen for making the message so easy to digest. Nothing MICkey Mouse about it, but the one thing that I found the most pertinent was Comprehensible input. For me the analogy is that it’d could turn out to be a useful tool in my arsenal of teaching methods. If I can make myself clearer to young, Elementary students, then that would be a major step towards better teaching.

Aside from starting up my own Los Alamos laboratory, I’m going to have to read about it. For now, Krashen is going to have to be the Einstein or even, the Oppenheimer.
