    Welcome to the world of teaching! You will just have to make it more interesting, won't you. Do you need a script, or what?

    Most children don't want to know about why they should eat broccoli, but it's still important that they do know.

      More proof of how dodgy EPC certificates are...

      2 things on an EPC:
      - Something labeled "energy efficiency": I'm not to sure what they intend this to be, but literally this means, obviously, how efficiently energy is used. I don't see how producing your own energy would improve efficiency, unless they only care about energy got from the grid, but to me that's defeating the purpose.
      - Something labeled "Environmental (CO2) impact": This is useless in itself as it assumes energy consumption = CO2 emission.
