Merry Christmas from all of us:
Mayhem, chaos, lost voice. Yup, that’s the Thunder Troop Christmas Party out of the way!

With Christmas coming, we should mention this now. We receivedÂ Moshi Monsters: Moshi Movies animation kit and we’ll break it out soon to give it a play but we already love the Hue webcam so this looks promising.
This isn’t a review, obviously, but it gets brilliant reviews elsewhere and 5 stars on amazon. As they gave one to the group for free, I think it’s only fair to give them a bit of publicity:
Use this complete kit to create your own stop motion animated Moshi Monsters movies; great fun for all! Suitable for all ages from 5 and up.
Approved for Windows and Mac OS X. The kit contains software, a HUE camera, backdrops, cut-out features and a step-by-step animation guide.
Upload your movies to YouTube, email them to your family and friends or save them to your computer.
The animation package is recommended by teachers for use in schools throughout the UK.
HUE was the camera of choice for the Tate Movie Road Show. HUE Animation (“It’s genius…” The Sun) was a 2013 Dad’s Choice Awards winner.
You can make Moshi Movies like this pretty much instantly:
And no, of course you are not restricted to just Moshi Monsters, the kit will animate anything your imagination can create.
You can buy the Moshi Monsters:Moshi Movie kite from amazon
Let the mayhem commence 🙂
We should take care, in inculcating patriotism into our boys and girls, that is a patriotism above the narrow sentiment which usually stops at one’s country, and thus inspires jealousy and enmity in dealing with others…Â Our patriotism should be of the wider, nobler kind which recognises justice and reasonableness in the claims of others and which lead our country into comradeship with… the other nations of the world.
The first step to this end is to develop peace and goodwill within our borders, by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life, so that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist; and then to extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.
