It seems I'm constantly perusing books, websites, videos, etc., in search of home-education methodologies to meet the children's individual needs. Being that we take an extremely eclectic approach to homeschooling, I've never felt compelled to broadcast the myriad of recipes we use... I'm not sure the locals would "get" it, and I'm much too busy to defend my modus operandi, as it were. I've already wasted too much time and energy trying to enlighten people (who don't really want to know) on our faith after they have erroneously pigeonholed us as typical evangelical fundamentalists once they learn we homeschool. I'm afraid it wigs them out to learn we are neither Roman Catholic nor Protestant, and yet we are more evangelical and fundamental than Billy Graham and the whole of the Bible Belt, and more catholic (with a lowercase "c") than the pope himself.
Anyway, while exploring the worldwide "Internets," I found this gentleman's awesome video response to an awful episode (aren't they all?) of The Young Turks on unschooling. I'm fascinated by his accent and can't figure it out. He has the cockney v's and f's for th's, and he makes the g in the ing ending with a k sound, and yet he doesn't have the glottal stops, nor the wide mouth Eastender abrasive thing. In other words, he makes cockney sounds, but you don't feel like he's yelling at you or about to pick your pocket or sweep your chimney. (I'm kidding, Billy, I love you, and I hope your grown-up hairline didn't blister!)
Perhaps Mrs. Sarah can help us identify the accent. Billy said he sounds southern. Aren't you southern, Mrs. Sarah? Are you there? What say you?
