The floating disc exercise sounds like a good one, Ross.  I hope to try it
out . . . but not until next fall.  I have a special challenge facing me.
I'll be teaching in an international program at Dalkeith (10 mi. . er . .
16km) s of Edinburgh from Jan. 28th to May 16th.  We have "lab" facilities
in the dungeon like basement (20 compound scopes), but little else.  I am
interested in any ideas/information on the following:

1. lab exercises with minimal - no equipment (if I know in advance [by Jan
5th] I can ship some supplies over), especially field exercises.  It is "the
land of horizontal rain," but I guess something is always in flower.  I will
have a van, so can get to the Firth of Forth (to do what?) (driving on the
left - YIKES) and the botanical gardens.

2. Field guides to local plants (most of which I guess are not native).

3. The best way to gain access to the internet - I may really need
pedagogical counseling.

4. Any additional words of wisdom or help.

I'm really looking forward to it, but have my share of apprehension.

Thanks,

Wil Taylor
