Learning At Home
Nearing the completion of the second week of self isolation, and all is fine, so far.
A very pleasant email from my dentist advising that they are shutting down the practice for the foreseeable future, and will be in touch again, when safe to do so. If any problems arise they can offer advice over the phone.
I remember the old comic strip cartoons illustrating a string round the offending tooth with the other end tied to a doorknob of an open door. The helpful friend then slammed the door shut.
I doubt that ever worked.
We completely understand. Dentists and Hygenists are at high risk.
Today’s Blipfoto is another Bookshelf within one metre of my desk. No social distancing for books.

Now is a good time for everyone to think about acquiring more skills.
Most apps have help links to YouTube which explain how an application works. They often give a link to a manual as well.
Another source of learning courses is Learning from LinkedIn. Learning is a Subscription Service which I have used for several years. Previously it was known as Lynda. The quality of the courses is very high and covers a wide range of subjects.
Pat chatted with Clara (10) and Max (7) and they are working on school lessons provided by their class teacher.
Pat and I watched The Two Popes on Netflix last night. What a wonderful film. Well worth the Oscars Nomination.
Tomorrow is Saturday; the start of the weekend. Judging by the weather forecast I might manage some gardening, so long as the predicted north wind is very slow.
