Third school in three days. But first I had a 6.30am interview with Buzz and Blake of 90.3 AMP Radio. Buzz has been a big supporter right from the start and he wanted to know how things were going. I brought him up-to-date and he said that they would drop by the school, for a video interview, later on. Today's school was Dr. JK Mulloy. I had run here before, on January 14th, Marathon #11. It was great to be back and Math Learning Leader Melissa met me at the door. We had an assembly at 8.15am and then I was out looking for a route around the school. Problems. The pathways were in poor condition, ice and snow build up. All I could find was a 100m strip of bare pavement. Well that was it, no use complaining.

Buzz and Blake came by at 10.30am. They said that I had been nominated as a "Christmas Angel" and the following is the video they shot:

And finally. Google have mapped Mars, they've mapped the Moon, they've even taken pictures of our houses showing you and I brushing our teeth. They are all powerful. And then there's Alice. Alice works for Google. She has a 6x6 cubicle in the basement of the 127 storey Google Head Office in Mountain View, California. Alice has a problem. Google Calendar has a glitch. When you make an appointment it shows it on the previous day. Not Good. Alice says "You all are being so helpful with each other and with the tips and workarounds, and I just want to say thank you so much for your patience and support. We'll keep you guys posted". Alice needs help. Will one of the Google stargazers on the 127th floor please come down and give her a hand! Thank you.

And finally, finally. Sue and I have packed our pj's and toothbrushes. We're off to Las Vegas. On Sunday, I run the marathon.
