I really can't use the touchpad on my laptop. Can anyone? :?

I can and I do. I have no mouse on my classroom computer. :geek:

Oh, sh**, sorry, I must've got it mixed up with something else. I think they talked about the Thames and the bridges and so on on the ferry we took from the South Bank to Greenwich. I think it was the South Bank, anyway. I'm certain that we took the ferry from a terminal near the London Eye, I'm just not sure where that is supposed to be situated.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

The duck tours BRILLIANT! :D It runs from the London Eye (Wheel) and I think it still goes into the River beside the MI6 building (yes it does - click the link ;) ). Not as good value as the hop on hop off red buses, but definitely worth the money for the river part alone :D

I only know that the ferry ran at least from the London Eye to Greenwich. I went over three years ago now, the precise details are a little fuzzy. I just thought the London Eye was south of the Thames...

...which, according to Wikipedia, it is. And it's not Westminster it's in. It's Lambeth. Don't worry, I found it hard keeping track of all the little districts and boroughs. I was lucky that I could navigate the Tube easily. The hardest part was coping with ALL THE PEOPLE!!! :shock: :o

Yes, the London eye is in Lambeth, on the south side of the river, just north of the the Houses of Parliament across Westminer bridge - on the north side of the river.

"German celebrity bunny crushed to death by cameraman

Rabbit born without ears killed by TV crew member just as Saxony zoo prepared it for global fame"

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/ma ... NTCMP=SRCH

The saddest story of the week. :( :( :( :cry: :cry: :cry:

It's not funny in the slightest! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Anybody who thinks this story is funny is sick. :cry: :cry: :cry:

There's even a photo of the cuddly little ex-rabbit. (Obviously before it was trampled on) :cry: :cry: :cry:

I guess rabbit's feet don't necessarily bring good luck.

This must have been a hare-raising experience for those present.

I suppose after this happened there was no bunny hope that he would live.

I heard the ilttle guy's last words were, "What's up--ARGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"

I heard that the cameraman said, just before it happened, "Be vewwwy quiet. I'm cwusshing wabbits."

Apparently, after this happened, the French immediately surrendered.
