Tim Vine


It's still very cold. Very snowy. I met a presumably very hungry rabbit in the lane beside our house yesterday. I felt so sorry for it and almost offered to go and get it some lettuce. But I really don't want a tame rabbit in my garden and anyway, it ran away.

On a lighter note, if you have 5 minutes to spare, you might like to watch Tim Vine trying to catch a pencil behind his ear - sorry that I don't know how to make the wee telly screen appear on the page:

and then, if you have another 2 minutes, possibly this:

Very silly but somehow funny. Well, I think so, anyway.

Isabelle---I think you, and possibly Tim Vine too, have been cooped up too long. Fingers crossed for the snow to melt soon!

I can see you trying this, especially the hocky stick. The neighbours would be highly amused.
I think your students would certainly enjoy the pencil trick! Especially those computer class boys. :)

Isabelle -- I'm going to have to go with Molly on this one. You're too funny -- and I can't believe I sat through that whole thing -- BOTH whole things. They were pretty funny -- thanks for today's laugh!

If you copy the "embed" code from youtube, paste that where you post your text, it should work.

I don't think I was quite sleep deprived enough to be amused, on another day I might be.

It grew on me. Re embedding - you need to put it into the html version of your post, not in compose mode as I found out after making rather a mess of it and remember to tick that you don't want related videos to appear.
