Wisdom, Easter Buns and Coding

27 Mar

In conversation with Live-wire 3 as we were baking this morning:  “Grannies know a lot don’t they Granny? I know why that is!  It’s because you’ve been alive for such a long time, isn’t it?”

But we don’t know about coding! Happily, Live-wire 2’s Aunty knows and can guide as together they coded to make traffic lights go on and off allowing the pedestrians just 4 seconds to get across the road!

Being a Granny is great fun and there is a lot to be learned from our lovely little people!

    There is something truly cheerful about Easter … all the colors and the thought of Spring being around the corner. I started using computers after I was 40. What an amazing tool.

    My son knows all about coding, it amazes me what these kids know already.

      Fascinating what they are capable of growing up with computers. Our daughter, the aforementioned Aunt, calls them the Digital Natives. 🙂

    I used to code, but not for computers! We did it by hand, with surveys. Bundling responses into categories. My head swims as I remember it. I can’t begin to understand the binary finery!! This was fun, thanks for stopping by to see me, too! Love, Amy

      ‘Binary finery ‘ – I like that – another poem in the making! Thank you for calling in, for sharing our Sunday and taking the time to comment.
      All the best, Sally 🙂
