So it is up and at it at the usual time. The earlier I get there, the earlier I can leave...that's always the plan anyway, if not the reality. So, breakfast at 6.12am along with yesterday's paper and listening to the radio of course.
|Too much cheese? at 6.12am|
We've also discussed a few more ideas over lunch. Interesting how chief amongst our discussion over the day is how to bring collegiality back into the university workplace. I've discussed this a bit over at the other blog. It might be the time of the year...but there's a 'flashmob' plan...watch this space.
Squeezed in an interview today too with the local TV station. Asked about the high percentage of 18-19 year olds who don't enrol to vote (about 43%) we ranged through a number of reasons why that might be so. In the end, I suggested that, in the same way we are talking about raising the drinking age back up to 21 years, perhaps we can do the same with the voting age. It may well be that if voting is not of interest to this age group, then let's leave it for a few years when it might become more interesting, or more relevant. Is it a solution? Well, let's talk about it, in our tearoom...where we solve all the world's problems.
|On #theBruce, at 6.12pm|
Managed to be heading homeward a bit earlier than usual and indeed on #theBruce (as we've come to know it) at 6.12pm this evening. Given my impending absence, the Friday night beer and pizza night has been brought forward to Tuesday night. We continue to talk about solving the world's and the tertiary sector's problems...one pizza at a time.
