I grew up in North Staffordshire. "All right Duck?" was a common greeting.
If we caught my Dad snoozing, he would say he was "resting his eyes"
At bed time, we would be sent "up the wooden hill" ( = upstairs!)
We've been getting good results with this one.
Note: it's no good if you're looking at temperature, as it doesn't denature at high temps! Works great for the enzyme/pH required practical though :)
I did this last week!
Took a lot of tweaking, but got a nice result in the end. The blue is no glucose (just distilled water), the "green" is 0.01M, orange is 0.05M and brick red is 0.1M.
The only way I could get yellow was to boil up a few chunks of potato and use the water!!! (I found that tip...
My contract is term time plus INSET days plus 5 other days. I usually do the extra days in the summer, but am going to do one of them next week during the Easter holidays for this very reason! We've been so manically busy his term, my Prep room is a tip and I still have boxes of items delivered...
10% yeast and a spatula or two of glucose.
Make the yeast at least an hour before the lesson to give it chance to rehydrate properly. I keep it in a nice warm spot (on the bench above the radiator!) before giving it out.
Use small conicals (no bigger than 100ml), or boiling tubes are fine too.

I've done lots of cross stitch in the past, but am finding such close work rather challenging these days (it's an age thing!).
We also like to get out and walk on Dartmoor or the SW Coast Path...
Has anyone ordered the full range UI from Breckland recently?
I've just gone to order some, and noticed that on the website it says that it's yellow at pH7.
Is this tweakable or would it be better to order from elsewhere?
If you want something grittier, then I would recommend the DCI Ryan books by LJ Ross. I'm reading through the series and have just started book 7, having had a break to read the Richard Osman books!!!!!
Nothing intellectual or heavy for me right now!! I've nearly finished Richard Osman's "The man who died twice"....having already read "The Thursday Murder Club".
They were Christmas presents - very easy, end-of-the-day reading. Osman captures the pensioner age characters beautifully :D
We are advertising for a Chemistry technician to cover maternity leave. The advert says from May, but there's a possibility it could be an earlier start.
We are a team of 3 technicians - one for each specialism, although we all cover all 3 sciences at KS3. We each have our own prep room, and the...
