Positive Start to the Week

After being effectively housebound for a while, mainly getting out for matters concerning bear, I went for a brisk walk after dropping bear off.  Then I had a healthy snack and reviewed some writing I had been doing and called into the Knit and Natter at church.  Regrettably they had changed the times since I last went, which was about four years ago and I missed it, but I'll get there on time next week.

It was remarkably positive, the most upbeat start to the week I have had for a long time.

I am also grateful for Ana for giving the link to the Khan Academy.  It sounds like a good choice.  I also found a few other bits at Open Learning which are free courses run by the Open University, distance learning in the UK that has a very good reputation.

Did you know that there is a free module about Babylonian Mathematics?  I had to have a go.  It wasn't very long, and I quite enjoyed going through it, but unfortunately it assumed you understood current western mathematics.  I enjoyed the history, but when the numbers came out my brain went off and picked daisies.

It has been a long, long time since I really learned something new.  It is going to be incredibly hard for me to work through stuff.  After this morning, challenge accepted.
