Fuzzwich - an animation tool.

This afternoon I saw link from Alex Bellars on Twitter to an amazing little animation made by Lisa Stevens using Fuzzwich to advertise the ililc show and tell.

I watched the clip and decided to investigate.

I'd never even heard of Fuzzwich until today but, hey, how difficult could it be?

So I have created my own, entitled "Can we use it in MFL?"

I'm not one to complain but....

I'm a huge fan of the television programme "Judge Judy". There, I've said it and I don't care who knows. But, recently on the show, there has been an increase in the number of people saying "aks" instead of "ask"and this really is irritating me.

It shouldn't.

Languages change and, I have it on good authority, that this isn't just American slang, but has been used in the south western counties of England for centuries.

It still hurts my ears, though.

Even worse than this is the use of the word "sikth" instead of "sixth" on the BBC of all places.

And when the word "footballer" is replaced with "footbler" it really makes my blood boil.
