It seems a little better than it was twenty minutes ago, but still not top speed.

I hate marking :evil: It's so hard to have to read the same essay 100 times in a row.

Do you give them all the same mark Dotsie, or mark them down as too similar for a good mark.

It's the same title Dug, but the quality varies considerably! This doesn't make them any easier to mark.

Marking is tedious work. That's one thing I don't miss about from my teaching days. I still do "marking light" when my girlfriend asks me how many points I would award for this answer or that, but all in all I'm out of that business.

Hope you get through the essays, Dotsie.

Hugs for everyone, especially those who have to go to the dentist!

One thing that does scare me the thought of going to a strange dentist. :handgestures-thumbdown: :confusion-helpsign:

That can definitely be stressful. If you have to go to a new dentist, see if you can get some recommendations from people you trust first.

Did not have a good experience with the last male one, the woman who was my Dentist in London for years was brilliant, I did not think twice about a visit to her sugery.

Hope the dentist is nothing like Steve Martin's. :lol: (I have always hated going to the dentist's and even find the scene in 'Marathon Man' hard to watch!)

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
