Yes, life is good right now!
The kids are all going great guns - my younger son is on a trip to London today, my daughter is getting ready for her Geography trip to Wales (yes Wales has lots of Geography!) and Number One Son is spending his spare time teaching himself various bits of computer programming!
The rabbits continue to do well (Mrs RC is watching them like a hawk, making sure nothing happens to them) - we now have tentative names: Houdini (the one who left the nest first and also the one who finds ways out of the run...), Panda because he/she has black eyes and ears but no other face markings, Lindt because he/she has brown markings and Lindt make chocolate rabbits at Easter) and Runt because he is smaller than the rest. Trying to think of a nicer name for Runt...
I might be getting a new guitar soon - I have checked out the local guitar shops and found one that I really like - a beautiful white one. More on this if/when I get it!
I also made my first map using my dissertation data!
This map uses data for 9 years comparing the number of new/expanding companies with the number of closing/contracting companies, ending just before everything went bad. The map has 6 categories of location.
White - not a big enough population to be included.
Yellow - "Average".
Pink - well below average change - stable/stagnating.
Red - declining.
Light green - dynamic - lots of change.
Dark green - boom - lots of growth, little decline.
Please let me know if anything looks wrong to you - I might need to check my data AGAIN! But it seems to match what I have been lead to expect.
One slight disappointment was that I did not win the £89 million on the lottery. I won a mere £2.70 which I spent on a couple of bottles of Coke. Ah well, it is only money!
Right! Back to it!
