Re: CH and flu

I had the jab in the sixties - and have had flu twice since. I don't think that is fully attributable to clean living. What was the name of the injection - novichuk, or something...? :shock:

Re: HOUSEY SLANG

I think it was Roger who pushed the limit of Pongo's (limited) lattitude by declaiming/'spoonerising' 'Give us hearty thanks' at Grace at a time where there was a competition to see who could get away with what. His voice was notable then. Other tricks were reading it as fast as possible, or having ...

Re: HOUSEY SLANG

Crab, flab and Muck was the slang name for the dining room trade of getting/clearing the bread jam/marmalade and butter for the tables thoughout the 80's and Kiff was still standard use for dining hall tea. I recall it as CRAM, flab and muck for the individual items in the 60s/70s. I also still hav...

Re: Housey Slang.....

For some unknown reason the word 'drut' recently came into my head so I thought I should post while I remembered! Whether it was a word peculiar to Maine A in the mid sixties or a more general term of CH slang I don't recall at this distance. It was a derisory term for somebody considered wet and p...

Re: Housey Slang.....

Re: Penguin-Bashers: Did They Really Exist or Were They a Myth?

Intriguing to hear the story behind the stories. In my time there was a tale of a junior being threatened in Shelley Wood resulting in 'tooled up' (hockey sticks featured) Housie mob rushing of to confront an bunch from Muntham. The tale I heard recounted that a six footer bluecoat drew a line and i...

Re:

Steve will be relieved to know that he is to be remembered for introducing Mid B to chip butties .... I don't remember the cannabis incident, (probably pre-senile dementia, or senile dementia more likely) it obviously didn't knock his acedemic career off course. There were other cannabis incidents ...

Re: Your nickname

Milt surely came from a seaman homonym 'Milt is the seminal fluid of fish, mollusks, and certain other water-dwelling animals who reproduce by spraying this fluid which contains the sperm, onto roe (fish eggs)' - or was that too intellectual for pupils? Certainly many others were far from subtle!
