Only just noticed this. It's certainly more positive than the new stanza that suggested itself to me:
Images of taphonomy,
what a thing to show on TV.

The poem made me think that perhaps it is not possible to know how much Jesus suffered for us.

Thanks. A bit bothered about those endorsements, as I fear they are more kind than accurate.

Hmm yes I polished up my Linkedin site too after watching Ange's presentation. Gosh, you've been endorsed by lots of people. Very impressive.

Thanks! I too feel my Twitter-at-work ban as a bit of a wrench. But there are very good reasons for it. I agree also that Twitter is far better when responsive than just when pushing things out. I get round the prohibition in two ways:

(i) @AidanBaker follows all the @HaddonLibrary's followers, so I hear from them when I'm at home

(ii) Twitter interactions w. the @HaddonLibrary are notified to me by email, and I can respond to them properly that way.

2016-11-02T10:04:38.861+01:00

Interesting to read about your use of Twitter. While everyone's use is entirely their own, I think it is a shame that you don't use Twitter at work as I often find useful discussions on there that are relevant to my professional work throughout the day. I guess it depends on who you follow.

As for the Twitterfeed, while a useful tool to reduce workload, I'm not sure it is very friendly for Twitter as it doesn't work well with the 140 character limit. Plus Twitter should be responsive rather than just pushing stuff out there. But if that's what works for your situation then fine but it would be interesting to see a more active approach to Twitter use too as you do seem to post some interesting links to other stuff too! Just some thoughts, thanks for sharing.

Indeed yes: the difference from the original, and specifically the research emphasis, are precisely the reasons why I am following this new one.

2016-10-26T10:26:17.628+02:00

Welcome aboard! I suspect you'll find the 23 Research Things programme slightly different to the original 23 Things one purely because this has more of a research emphasis. However, lots of interesting tools to learn about so I look forward to seeing how you get on with them all.

Like your poems very much. Life can be startling and cruel.

2014-10-18T12:59:51.837+02:00

"Yellow," he thought and stomped off back to his bedroom to get
dressed.
Passing the bathroom he stopped to drink a large glass of water, and
another. He began to suspect that he was hung over. Why was he hung over?
Had he been drinking the night before? He supposed that he must have been. He caught a glint in the shaving mirror. "Yellow," he thought and stomped on to the bedroom.
He stood and thought. The pub, he thought. Oh dear, the pub. He
vaguely remembered being angry, angry about something that seemed
important. He'd been telling people about it, telling people about it at great length, he rather suspected: his clearest visual recollection was of glazed looks on other people's faces. Something about a new bypass he had just found out about. It had been in the pipeline for months only no one seemed to have known about it. Ridiculous. He took a swig of water. It would sort itself out, he'd decided, no one wanted a bypass, the council didn't have a leg to stand on. It would sort itself out.
God what a terrible hangover it had earned him though. He looked at himself in the wardrobe mirror. He stuck out his tongue. "Yellow," he thought. The word yellow wandered through his mind in search of something to connect with.
Fifteen seconds later he was out of the house and lying in front of a
big yellow bulldozer that was advancing up his garden path.

2014-01-11T00:02:06.112+01:00

Oh, you read 'Third Way'. That is interesting. My friend used to edit it. Haven't read it for years but good to hear it is still going. Do you think that was what inspired Tony Blair to 'invent' the phrase? I always thought it was. He did not give them the credit though. It's a great read.

Gosh, Aidan, you really are madder than I thought.....we wouldn't have you any other way: keep up the good work.

2013-03-17T01:29:10.756+01:00

The offer of chocolate for correct identification of the village is hereby withdrawn, as I came clean about it in tweets on 2 March 2013. The village is Gringley on the Hill in Nottinghamshire, England. The tweets were on account of the parish church's excellent memorial service to my father, the Rev. Ivon Baker (1928-2011), who had been vicar there for 32 years to 1994.

On Mon 9 Jan (yes, "Tues 4" should have read "Tues 3"), I was down to 14st10 -- ie a week of diet had taken off 2/3 of gain from the week & more of feasting.

As I say, the degree of weight control produced by the diet is not spectacular. I don't propose to keep on announcing my weight publicly; I think I've made my point.

On Tues 4 Jan I weighed 14st12 (94.55kg) -- 3lb (1.36kg) more than before the Christmas break. Let's see what a week back on the diet does to that...

2011-10-17T14:49:33.384+02:00

Thanks! The Haddon's copy of the memoir appears to have been borrowed only once since 2002, so I suspect that not many others will recognise it either.

No idea about the memoir, but I like the poems. Especially the first one.

Let's make a competition of this. Chocolate for the first reader to recognise the archaeological memoir alluded to.

Thanks! I wish I could remember which IT guru said, at the beginning of this year, that now was the time for dumbphones. I had to replace my mobile in February, chose a dumbphone, and have rued the choice off and on since then. The thing is a little too dumb for my needs, esp. wrt texting and re-use of numbers.

2011-09-25T07:36:05.321+02:00

I can empathise with wanting to keep a "dumb" phone, mine only needs to be charged every ten days or so! I do have an ipod touch though, which has all the features of an iphone apart from the calls and texts. I can recommend RedLaser (http://redlaser.com/) for scanning QR coes if you ever get that question again.

That comment from Phil Bradley doesn't surprise me in the slightest, sadly, I've heard similar before.

2011-09-25T01:03:07.834+02:00

I suspect that by the time I got to that wheeze, we'd have reached the tipping point where ebooks had become people's first port of call anyway, and you'd only be looking at such a thing as a bookshelf if an ebook wasn't available. QR codes in reading lists the same but more so -- a person able to use ebooks wd presumably get the lists delivered online, and the links cd be embedded in them there.
