    Make a traditional Christmas pudding to wow your friends and family. If you’re a newbie in the kitchen, visit the food & drink section to find inspiration or a teacher. Take turns to stir the pudding mixture and make a wish – and remember to stir from east to west to honour the three wise men!

    The Snowman

    I was caught in the act at a Corporate Christmas do playing a Childrens Christmas classical horror theme "The Sawman". This particular version was adapted for saw players by that well known composer/arranger Howard Blade.
    It was captured by a colleague on a mobile phone and posted on U-Tube.

    So just a little bit of general advice : Please be careful with what you do at your Christmas party. Its quite possible that someone is filming you.
    Have a good Christmas

    How to, erm, make like a bear...

    From an article about three guys who are walking round Britain, living without money:

    most of the British population... don't know how to defecate outdoors.

    "We're constantly coming across what we call the Ring of Hasty Poos," Will explains. " People need a crap and they're miles from a toilet, so they panic, go into the woods and fling bits of paper everywhere. These shameful poos are a real problem."

    The Folksy ruler

    One of the things I really like about Folksy.com (the UK-based crafts marketplace) is the cool stuff they make to promote the site. Looking through their Flickr stream, there are plenty of other examples of them getting involved with the community of people who make and sell stuff through the site.

    There's lots of inspiration there for us at School of Everything - and for any other startup that's trying to find playful ways to spread the word about a useful service.

    The 'Why Don't You?' Web

    We see School of Everything as part of a larger shift in the way people are using the web, away from spending more and more of our lives in front of screens, towards making things happen in the real world. Here's an article I wrote about this for the latest issue of the Learning and Skills Network briefing:

    Public vs. Private

    Moments

    Not the moment of darkness, but the moment of light
    Not the yearning of yesterday, but the tenderness of tonight
    Not the times forgotten, but the time throughout eternal life.

    sweet blossom now dying

    Where is the breath of life for a fragrant roses's delight?
    Once a tender smile filled its sight, colours vibrant bold and bright.
    Now the fading drooping heads reminds of love's dying breath,
    Thence falling petals whisper deep sighs as lonely time is passing by.....
