Wozza's Place...: There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder (Dave Edmunds)
Well we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun. Sunday, July 19, 2015. There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder (Dave Edmunds). Downsizing. I like it! As a concept, you don't hear about it much these days. Generally everything has to be bigger. McDonalds don't ever ask me if I'd like less coke and fries with that. SWMBO and I have completed our 'less is more' themed downsizing. We had 13 acres of hilly land, we now have 9 acres of flat paddocks. Two toilets, one.

Baggy Trousers: January 2017
What was the duty of the teacher if not to inspire? Monday, January 30, 2017. Nervous tension, man's invention (The Kinks). First day nerves. Everybody has them to a degree. It's probably when my mother's advice is most relevant. Deep breath. Pin your ears back. Links to this post. Wednesday, January 25, 2017. If you hear as the warm night falls the silver sound from a time so strange, sing to me, sing to me (Pink Floyd). But, sigh of relief - normal service is now resumed! Links to this post. Blog cover...
Baggy Trousers: When the lights go down in the city (Journey)
What was the duty of the teacher if not to inspire? Sunday, December 18, 2016. When the lights go down in the city (Journey). In celebration of City Lights Bookstore. In San Francisco and Wardini Books. Stage 1 English's 20th century American poetry course (omg - YES! Also had a Lawrence Ferlinghetti text as required reading - A Coney Island of the Mind. I was on board! Luckily, Jacky, Samantha and Jesse were waiting so I had a limited time to browse - otherwise I would have come out with loads of books!
Baggy Trousers: Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup (America)
What was the duty of the teacher if not to inspire? Saturday, December 31, 2016. Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup (America). Happy new year everybody! In the Queen's 2016 Christmas message she focused on the idea of inspiration coming from ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It's true. I certainly gain a lot of inspiration from people around me and it's a good time to look back on 2016 and thank some Joe and Jo Normals who have inspired me. It's a messy process this challenge bus...
Baggy Trousers: When it comes to leaving, I hope you understand (The Allman Brothers Band)
What was the duty of the teacher if not to inspire? Monday, November 28, 2016. When it comes to leaving, I hope you understand (The Allman Brothers Band). Recently, like yesterday, I resigned from my job and took a new position at a school in northland, NZ, as Principal. I was simultaneously offered another position at a school in the UK. It was a dilly of a pickle. Which one of these great opportunities to go for? Both of them offered a Hobson's choice. As you know, I'm a huge believer in Occam's Razor.
Baggy Trousers: We don't need no thought control (Pink Floyd)
What was the duty of the teacher if not to inspire? Thursday, January 5, 2017. We don't need no thought control (Pink Floyd). I'm on holiday in London right now but I just watched a couple of Seth Godin's TED talks. And my mind is back on school. In a good way. Teachers never really turn it off. We're magpies, collecting bits and pieces that may be useful. Well, these two talks were great! I urge you to take some timeout and have a go at them. You won't be disappointed.

Wozza's Place...: January 2015
Well we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun. Saturday, January 31, 2015. Sunburnt impedance machine (Mugstar). We live in a society people! We also live in a mechanical age and mechanical things go wrong. There seems to be a conspiracy going on at Red Phoenix Farm from time to time when the mechanical things get together and collude to stop working all at once. The tractor, the outdoor fountain's transformer, the chain saw and the cross trainer all conspired against me recently. I took ...
Wozza's Place...: July 2015
Well we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun. Friday, July 31, 2015. Up to my neck in you (Mark Kozelek). Keegan surprised me with a lovely gift recently - a Vandelay Industries. On quite a few levels - that is so cool! That someone somewhere decided to actually make one and that Keegan would know about it somehow and that he would get one for me. All very cool! Love and Peace - Bob Sacamano. Monday, July 27, 2015. Do ya feel lucky punk? Lo, how they feignen chalk for chese. I bought Unb...
