The first two emails I received were asking me about the header picture. It’s not a picture of a snowy scene, it’s just off the Tioga Pass Road in Yosemite National Park, California and it was over 100 degrees at the time! The hills are bare granite, which gives the appearance of a Christmas snow scene.
After reading this article on lifehacker, I decided to give Live Writer a go. It allows you to write your blog posts in a user friendly programme; it even automates the round edges for the photographs. Will I continue to use Live Writer? The jury is still out; I suspect that I will still use my web browser or iPhone for simple text posts.

20092 February Quiz
It can be sometimes time-consuming to come up with little activities for your tutor group. Every month I set a simple 10 question quiz that Year 7-13 students do during their 15 minute tutorial. Scores are collated and prizes awarded at the end of the year. The quizzes are designed to be light-hearted and can be used with any year group.
