Last night I boiled up again & extracted 3pts = 1.7 litres of first pressing orange juice, which according to reliable practice, will set nicely with 3kg of white sugar. And it was so! I now have another 11 pots of the good stuff, against the Zombie Apocalypse / CoViD lock-down / the end of the world as we know it [sing it!]
Did someone mention CoViD lock-down? They did: at a staff meeting at The Institute on Monday. After my last class on Friday afternoon, I was cruel enough to return to my office singing ♯♫♪♫
Four more weeks of teachingmy room-mates are not retiring this year; so they have to think about how they're going to update their courses and change their patter next year. Not me! After the meeting, it is looking reasonably likely that I could rather have been singing
Two more weeks to go
Two more weeks of teachingbecause a lock-down before Easter is definitely on the cards. We were advised to think of contingency plans for continuous assessment CA assessment. I had been planning my remedial maths practical exams for the week starting Monday 30 March 2020. The Man was suggesting that the date be brought forward a couple of weeks if possible. Could be done, I reckon.
I can sort that, and talk real fast about sex and immunology during the next two weeks in Human Physiology, I will have covered all the learning outcomes that require my physical presence in the same room as students.
I can retreat to Das Covidbunker and start loading silver bullets into the 12-gauge . . . lest any escapees from Shaun of the Dead come looking for the good stuff.
