Where is Isobel Clark?                    Back to www.kriging.com          
My schedule is at this link      Let me know if there are any problems!

5th October 2021 and summer is definitely here complete with thunder, lightning and torrential rains. First Thursday this week, Yay!

No further course planned in Southern Africa for 2021 with Spectacular or Tsk. Still available for in-house courses, personal face-to-face training or (of course) real work. I will be taking part in an interview for IMMSA on 20th October (online I assume) and will be "attending" the SAMCODES meeting in late October. Stay tuned and email me if you wish!

I "attended" the APCOM Symposium online. Not a lot of interaction going on with the invisible audience. The setup SAIMM uses does not allow attendees to check out who else is watching or to chat with them, which is very sad. Attending conferences has always been my way of catching up with old friends and colleagues and meeting potential new friends and colleagues. This whole online scenario leaves out all the friendly argy-bargy over coffees and beers and the verbal fist-fights in sessions. This was APCOM 40. My first was APCOM 14 in 1976, 45 years ago. One of the people I met there is still one of my best friends...............................

Some possible changes in the UK government travel rules as regards South Africa. Vague signs that they will allow me to go home to Scotland. I am fully vaccinated and totally willing to self-isolate, but I refuse to spend a small fortune being locked up in an airport hotel and fed slop for 10 days..............

In earlier news: Our amazing course organiser, Shaun of Spectacular T&C successfully managed our July 19-23 despite Level 4 lockdown and being stuck in Pietermaritzburg because of the riots and looting. We had 4 in the room and 4 online.

Sorry no plans for future courses as of this date.

A "class photo" for the July course! One of our participants did not have video capability. Thank you ALL!

Desperate to get home to Scotland without being imprisoned in an airport hotel. I am happy to self isolate but not to be locked up and starved and have to pay for it................... office_2021
