Edward II (of hot poker fame)

Let me guess.
You don't mean he was a card sharp, do you?

When you linked to it I realised my blog had very little actual content. I have a slightly more intellectual post up top now.

You don't mean he was a card sharp, do you?

No, not a card sharp. Neil knows his English history and can probably keep his Edwards straight. So to speak.

Neil: I actually get a lot of laughs out of reading your little exchanges with your students. One gets the impression that your job is like a witty school-based sitcom.

You can learn everything you need to know about Edwards I and II by watching Braveheart.

As for my job, people often ask if it's like the BBC TV series about a troubled secondary school, Waterloo Road. I don't watch it but usually say it's nothing like Waterloo Road. No really, nothing like Waterloo Road.

Did you know that Kirk Douglas's Ace in the Hole was filmed here in New Mexico?
