    Expecting a fair bit of banter with this.... however, here goes! As many of you know, I work in Chelmsford (a Shrimper in minor-exile!). My school is in the north part of town Melbourne/Broomfield kind of area. The missus moved in last year and things are all going well. She desperately wanted...

    Rons Blog 12/3/09

    No-one seems to have put it up! So here it is... Last week I touched on the backroom staff at the Club. That is not of course the backroom staff that support the football management but what I would describe as the “engine room” of the Club. I say that because I know whilst all fans will...

    That job interview...

    Didnt get the job I went for today. Was based on a points scoring system for the interview. Lesson I took went really well, no problems at all, but I got beat on the interview (even though we had the same points) by a primary teacher who claimed to not want to teach Year 10 or 11 and she's got...

    BBC (& Sky) Gaza DEC Appeal Veto

    My view is that there is a very real humanitarian crisis going on in Gaza and that urgent medicine, food and shelter is great need. I've been reading CAFOD's blog from Palestine which has been a real eye opener and very personal account of exactly what has been going on. I know there must be...

    BW Hartlepool Highlights

    On the match thread I got my first laugh of the evening when the commentator on BW stated that we needed at least four points from Northampton and MKD's. My second, rather belated, (incredulous) laugh, came from watching us concede our first goal on Friday night. To lose possession in your...
  14. Ref Watch .... Hartlepool away

    Man in charge at Hartlepool will be primary school headteacher from Horsforth near Leeds, Jon Moss. In his 4th season as a League referee, he has yet to take charge of a Southend match. A reasonably highly rated official who gets plenty of Championship matches, he will let the game flow if...

    The Facebook status thread

    I dunno about you guys, but I used to love Facebook. Well, for about 3 weeks. What it does well, it does great: silly stories, remembering birthdays, organising events, seeing photos taken by people you'd like to see more often, etc. However, when left in the hands of an imbecile Facebook is a...

    Obese kids 'not obese'

    Link Parents are to be informed if their kids are obese (like they couldn't tell by, say, having a look?), with letters sent home after weight tests at the start and finish of primary school. However, the term 'obese' will be ditched in favour of 'very overweight', as the Dept of Health is...
  18. Supporting Southend

    As a kid growing up I found myself supporting Arsenal. Watching them lift the Cup Winners Cup started this short love affair with a big gun. At this time I had never even heard of Southend United. Even tho my grandad supported them he never spoke of the mighty blues, having supported them...

    Where's Wally?

    Me and a mate were just talking about books when you were young at Infant and primary school. And I brought up the Where’s Wally books. Or Waldo as the Yanks call him. (It was changed to Waldo due to every time they asked a child where’s Wally they pointed at George Bush!) Used to keep me...
  20. Harold Bishop Killer


    A Primary school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by Year 5 students. Their insight may surprise...
