 Yesterday my youngest while on work experience for a conservation organisation working in the urban area of ipswich had his securely locked up bike nicked  . Secure in a locked garage padlocked with a quality lock to a work bench . The thieve broke down the door and sawed through substantial wooden bench to nick the bike .
Well whoever nicked it well done its an expensive bike you will get a £10 down the pub or on the street for .

Hope your proud nicking a bike a lad saved his cash for added Schwalbe Marathon plus tyres New Selle seat etc via our lovely friends at Elmys bike shop  to make a touring/sportiv machine. Picture above of said bike on a recent epic C2C.
Well Ive got news for you take a long look at yourself and realise that lad has more spirit than youve ever had .
He will save for a new bike carry on helping other and just doing good . He has learnt the lesson that took me his dad 30 years plus to learn   this little gem from a place mat at the cafe at Lower Horton on the C2C sums it up.








Theyve also inspired me to start blogging again on.

Virtuous square "quadblogging"

As a blogger with chequered history back to 2005 really interested how blogging in the educational context has taken off yet again and a project without doubt the biggest impact currently is The Quaddblogging concept developed by David Mitchell if you dont know what it is watch the video and visit the site at http://quadblogging.net/ and if you like it sign up to be involved.

Has the world changed and are learners different as usual you decide but this report from the US has kicked off the debate and got me on the blog again. The report "Take a Giant  step ; a blueprint for teaching the digital age has got me on the blog again  http://joanganzcooneycenter.org/Reports-31.html . That @bobharrisonset has via his Stanford links brought this to mine and  twitters attention . No comment from me but worth a read and maybe a reflection on your experience and practice . Thanks as always Bob for sharing and challenging the status quo
