This, too, shall pass. I hope you all manage to do something creative and fun with your time. Trying to do some video lessons, as live online lessons are really difficult to pull off with all of our learners so scattered and parents not accustomed to different apps and stuff. The future looking gloomy some days, then sunny and bright the others. It comes and goes in waves, right;)? As for my books, that has sort of taken the back seat for now, due to lack of inspiration and concentration, but am developing something on Facebook. Fingers crossed it works. Meanwhile, learned how to use elementary Zoom from my son, how to play chess from my daughter, etc.
Any new things you have been able to learn these days? I find that it keeps my spirits up. Take care and be well!

At a time when I should be retired, made it to 70, I may now have to teach online uni classes, and I don t even Skype, anyway I know that I will be able to get all the materials I need from this great site.
Whilst here I just thought that I should pop into the cafe. Really sad to hear about "Granny", who was so much a part of so many lives of members here.

I know that some of you must be going through really hard times at present, when I think of Spain, Italy, France, my home country the UK and South Africa, where I once had my home, I am greatly saddened by the situation.  

Hope and pray. That s about all I can do at the moment.

We have two sons in Tokyo, which may go into lockdown soon, another in Fukuoka and our daughter is safely at home with us, on the island of Kyushu, right now.

Hi all, did you see Aftab s post in the forum--it got me missing some of you that only come here anymore--and a lot that are gone  (Zora, Ivona,....).

Those were good times! And the cafe was so active...had to check it a couple times a day or you would miss posts.


just reminiscing..be safe all!

True, Douglas. I have been learning so much lately that I wonder if it will make me too young for my own good;) (they say learning keeps us young, but at this rate I might be returning to diaper - level), or if it will make me crazy. Naaaah, it will be what it will be. No stress, right? Let s just keep being our best selves. Take care, all of you!

Hi everyone,

I hope I m not being too optimistic, but we do seem to be coming to the end of this dreadful virus.  I m a bit worried about our confinement here in France coming to an end on the 11th May (I should be happy about it!!) because it s not OVER yet and could spring up again if people go back to their old habits.

Will things ever be the same again, I wonder.  There will be so many people facing economical crises and it will take some time to get back to normal.  Small businesses and shops are already closing down and thousands are now unemployed.  How the gouvernment is going to face this influx of unemployed I don t know?! 

Anyway, let s try to look on the bright side of things and make the most of what we have and be thankful for it.

Take care all of you.

Just a bit of sharing - started online Teams lessons. Much as I like the promises of technology, which fall short due to the fact that not all kids in the groups can access the materials I share (due to their bandwidth etc.), I soooooooooooo miss live interaction. It s just... the need to feel the room, you know? I do hope it gets better with time.

Hugs

Hello there,
It s so quiet in the cafe!  Hope everyone is safe.  While being quarantined, I started doing a lot of yoga and the results have been astounding.

Anyone else here into yoga?

Hi
Can you help me with this doubt that I came across with: I have learned all my life "open you books on page..." I remember my teachers saying that, I have always said that and now I heard that it is wrong and that the right way to say it is "open you books at page..." is it? A friend of mine that has lived for many years in Canada said that "open your books on page" doesn t sound wrong to him. I really would like to be sure about this.
Thanks in advance

Hello Xi an China!

TMMF you should take your question to the forum.  I always say open your books TO page ..."  Let s see what the others say.

HELLO EVERYONE!

YOU ALL ARE LIFELINES, YOU KNOW! I DON T BELIEVE I COULD HAVE KEPT MY JOB OR THE REMAINING FEW HAIR ON MY HEAD IF IT HADN T BEEN FOR YOUR "SUPERB AND READY TO USE" WORKSHEETS. 
I MAY POSSIBLY BE THE MOST COMPUTER ILLITRATE PERSON ON THIS SITE AND HAVE A PERHAPS SEEMINGLY LITTLE ( BUT COLOSSAL FOR ME) PROBLEM. THE "HAND ME DOWN" COMPUTER  I HAVE BEEN USUNG SO FAR GETS TIRED TOO EASILY AND I HAVE GOT MYSELF  A NEW COMPUTER TO WORK WITH. I AM HOWEVER, UNABLE TO ACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT ON ESLPRINTABLES ON THE NEW ONE BECAUSE WHEN I PUT IN MY USER NAME AND PASSWORD, I GET THE MESSAGE THAT I CANNOT BE FOUND AND MUST TRY AGAIN.

I GUESS THE THING TO DO IS TO CONTACT VICTOR BUT I DO NOT HAVE HIS EMAIL. WOULD YOU HELP ME PLEASE? THANK YOU! :)

AFFECTIONATE SEASON S GREETINGS TO YOU ALL.

Hi everyone,

Haven t been here for a long time.  Still drinking Lynne or have you given up!  He...he...

In this time of trouble (sounds like a Beatles song) I thought it might be nice to send you something to make you smile (I hope some of you non-natives can understand):

--How does Moses makes his tea?  Hebrews it.

--A cross-eyed teacher lost her job because she couldn t control her pupils.

-- When you get a bladder infection, urine trouble.

--I took the job at the bakery because I kneaded dough.

--  England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.

... and my favourite:

--This is the story of a dyslexic man who walks into a bra ...

Hope you all enjoy the end of the year festivities and let s hope we can beat nasty old Covid in 2021.

Best wishes,
Janet

Back again to see how everyone is.  I m well and truly retired now, (70 in November!!) not that I would refuse any on-line teaching, but I m not advertising at the moment.

This pandemic seems to be completely out of control.  Our PM (I live in France) is going to make some decisions this week whether we should go back into lockdown or just stick to our curfew?  No idea!  My husband and I are "high risk" so don t mix with anyone and apart from walking around our lovely village just go out for essential shoppng. 

Here in Provence the mimosa has started to blossom.  I m lucky to have a mimosa tree in the garden.  In a week or so the whole tree will be in bloom.

Take care everyone.
