Welcome to Tell All Class Students!
Officer Kitty reported that yesterday just before school opened, all of you waiting to get in were very orderly and considerate of each other and hardly anyone got into a fight over who was in line and who wasn’t. We Professors want to thank you AND to tell you we all appreciate all the positive comments on the new FISH SCHOOL building and features. It’s a nice place and we hope to be in it for many years to come!
NOW – let’s get down to business shall we?
“Yeah – let’s get on with the show – we just wanna know who gets a badge – oh – and have lunch too of course!”
Well thanks for putting us in our place Rodney. Just don’t expect a gold star today for being polite in class!
When the doors to Fish School opened yesterday we had THREE (not seven or eight but THREE) students who arrived during the first sixty seconds school was open. WHO?
“Did you call me????????????”
No but thanks for showing up anyway. May we have a double drumroll as we announce our THREE FIRST COMMENTERS?
INGRID, JANET and SHARON!
Congratulations ladies – you each get one of these:
Now for information about the photo from yesterday. Our GUEST TEASER was Frank Girolami whose blog Beach Walk Reflections HERE is a most enjoyable and relaxing as well as thought-provoking blog. He’s also a great photographer so we’re happy to have contributions from him from time to time!!! Before we forget, let’s give him his GUEST TEASER badge…….
Here’s his wonderful photo:
This is the Grand Canal in Trieste, Italy
Here’s what Frank said about this beautiful place:
“Trieste has an interesting history. It was the main port for Austria-Hungary for hundreds of years. It was given to the Italians at the end of WW1. After Italy lost in WW2, the Yugoslavs wanted it, but they were tied to the Russians, so the UN created a Free Territory of Trieste that would be policed by the Allies. In his Iron Curtain speech (1946), Winston Churchill stated an Iron Curtain would descend “from Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic.” Therefore, some say UN establishing Trieste as a free territory was the start of the Cold War.”
Now would you like to know who was the FIRST to guess this city/country? Let’s have another drumroll please………….
Congratulations to you and here’s your badge:
AND – if you guessed right but weren’t FIRST, here’s your badge:
Were you WRONG with your guess? YES there’s a badge for that:
“Boo Hoo Hoo…..I never win…..maybe if I studied once in a while I’d win???”
Absolutely right Malcolm – you just need to crack open a book once in a while and learn about the world and you’d win something too!! At least you WIN a Wrong Guesser badge.
Now let’s bring on the Cheer Team for some cheer shall we??
“Anyone who is overly depressed they didn’t get a badge, please stop by the dispensary”
So I guess all we have left now is to head to lunch – ready? What a dumb question – of course you are – let’s go!
Day Two of Fish School….you know the routine – bring your try up to the line and enjoy a fabulous lunch!
Great Class everyone! See you all NEXT Tuesday for more TEASER FUN!
