Settling in...

Hurray! I am now the new resident of a room in a six bedroom house in a small village of Harborne (home of Birmingham's professionals). It is the nicest part of town I have seen so far, and it is only 20 min buy bus (one bus only!) to my school (I also bought a monthly bus pass yesterday). So I am pretty set up and ready to begin life here in Birmingham. I'll be updating more regularly once my flat gets wireless (landlord says within two weeks)...

So I am off to do some lesson planning - which will be my life for the next year - but I thought I'd show you four photos from a small museum in Munich close to where Nathalie lives, the Museum Mensch und Natur:

1.) A very non-descript entrance-way...

2.) The centerpiece of the museum: a camptosaur mount, huge ammonite, and a glyptodon model (never seen one of 'em before!) - click to enlarge!

#.) Then there was this hilarious model of the jurassic - dino time! But look closer...

4.) A close-up reveals...Oh no!...he's eating Kermit the Frog!!!

Poor Kermie....

Cooooooool, Peter! Congrats on the flat and good luck with the kids. Like I said, if you're sick of the death threats, you have a safe house here in Germany.

It was really good to have you here (is your hangover gone yet?). See you soon in London or Munich or somewhere else in crazy Europe!

:)

P.S. Yeah, well, ecologically speaking, Kermit never seemed to be a very fit competitor...

I guess someone wanted to show they had a hand in creating the exhibit. But seriously, that was quite the scary looking dinosaur: armed and dangerous! And now we show what to do when a dinosaur comes after you with a bunch of loganberries. First you disarm him, then you eat him.

Boo, puns... bad Dave, bad.

Poor Poor Kermit.

PETER!
Have you settled in yet?!? Or have your students already lynched you? Let us know you're still alive, for crying out loud!

;)

Well, hoping you're still alive and having to assume that you're just swamped under a mass of lesson plans and red ink, know that we're still thinking of you often! Hope you're enjoying your new life!! :)
cheerio for now
