Face-Off With a Deadly Predator

This is an amazing video of a leopard seal... and a job I don't envy as it looks cold, let alone dangerous.

Right now, after a hectic week, my job feels pretty overwhelming... but on reflection, I think I will avoid a swap with this guy.

Meanwhile, I had a great birthday last weekend, with final end of year dinners and exams... our marking pile kept us all head down for a while!

All this was followed by a full on business trip to Wellington, and a weekend of parties for birthdays and neighbours - and a lot of recovering...from being tired, not the drinking!
Anyway - back to work, and finishing all our classes this week, so the interview process starts all over again over the next fortnight. Not much time in there to grieve, but we will miss the leaving students. Good luck everyone.

  3. A belated Happy Birthday to you. Thanks for the info on you tube I did what you said.

    As for your you tube viseo, that is amazing. He was lucky as she could have attacked him instead of trying to "help" him.
