This week has flown past!
Number One Son (doing work experience with me) has been fantastic, really showing off how good he is with programs like Excel and also how quickly he can pick up other programs. Yesterday he created a video fly-through along part of the Grand Canyon using our mapping software, complete with tilting view at the bends. So cool! He seems to have really enjoyed himself, and has risen amazingly to every challenge that I have thrown at him. Right now he is trying to automate another Excel task for me, while I do the photocopying. Isn't HE supposed to do that sort of rubbish job?
Has anyone else been trying to keep track of Swine Flu? Over here it isn't as much in the public eye as it should be, and has been spreading rapidly. The number of deaths here has suddenly jumped too, going from 17 to 29 in the last couple of days. Haven't see a figure this morning. The Health Service also suddenly announced their worse-case scenario - up to 65,000 deaths in the UK. This is a major change from the previous "nothing to really worry about" stance. Are they really only just waking up to how bad things could get? I don't know how things are in the US or Canada now, as it rarely seems to get a mention on CNN or FoxNews - except for the couple of billion that has now been allocated to dealing with it! Mrs RC smells a "keep quiet so they don't panic" situation...
