Winners are grinners

5 - 0. Woohoo! Saints crushed Port Adelaide by 66 points on Friday night. In Adelaide too - especially good as our record against Port over there has been woeful over the years. Port were 3 - 1 before the game so they've been doing pretty well too. I'm impressed by the Saints' hardness at the ball this year. They are tough!! And kicking plenty of goals too. Yeah!

Certificate IV, Training and Assessment. That's the course I started today. After 28 years teaching I didn't think there was much I didn't know about training and assessment. Seems I was wrong. I came home from the first session today with about 15 forests worth of paper - all acronyms and jargon mostly. So, by the end of the course I'll be able to train and assess people to train and assess other people.
