Willy comes to visit

We all know where Willy Wop and his family live. Well, surprise! surprise! Daddy Wop is going to bring Willy Wop to come and visit us!

They have to go all the way through the forest. They have to follow the winding trail on the other side of the forest. Then they must go over the hill and follow the long, narrow path down the hill until they come to the deep, deep river. There they must find the raft, which is hidden in the long grasses so that they can cross the river. We will meet Willy at the river and take him to our homes to spend a few days with us.

  • We will have to plan Willy’s holiday carefully.

1. What kind of games would you play with such a little forest boy?

2. Will you also take him fishing?

3. Which games do you play that will be new to Willy?

4. How will you take Willy to other places?

5. What do you think Willy will say about all these new experiences?

Willy goes visiting.

The little bird said:

“Good morning, dear Willy, my friend”,

As he sat on the branch of a tree,

“Where are you going so early this morning?”

And Willy said:

“Good morning, little bird in the tree,

I’m visiting my friends in the city.”

And Sammy the Snake said:

“Good afternoon, dear Willy, my friend,”

As he lay in the sun on the stone,

“Why do you climb this hill so high?”

And Willy said:

“Good afternoon, Sammy, up there on the stone,

I’m visiting my friends and they’re far from home.”

And the frog said: “Good evening, dear Willy, my friend,”

As he sat on the log in the river,

“Where are you sailing to on your raft?”

And Willy said:

“Good evening, little green frog in the river,

I’m visiting my friends and I’m beginning to shiver.”

With a wave of his hand

He set off to the land

Where his friends were waiting for him.


  • What time of day did he meet the bird? the snake? the frog?

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
