Re: Anyone interested in an Old Blues group in Scandinavia?

Hello Maria There was only one response to the suggestion, and one way and another we did not meet up - we left the whole thing on hold. A recent leaver contacted me just a couple of weeks ago - she is in Stockholm for a year, then going to Oxford. I am on the move for the next few weeks and not onl...

Re: Languages, anyone?

It's so sad when people hate or fear languages, and even worse to feel terrorised by them. Latin at CH was no fun, although I have been enormously grateful for it in my later career. Languages should be fun, especially now that electronic aids are everywhere, and people travel as never before, so th...

Re: Chapel Music

On this topic, does anyone remember another hymn, which I think was written especially for CH, with these two verses among others? Yea, lord, the City's mighty heart By thee was inly stirred; She too rejoiced to bear her part Obedient to they Word. We bless thy name and pray that we Who bear Christ'...

Languages, anyone?

I enjoyed languages at school - and back in the 1960s we never really expected to use them a lot. They were a kind of accomplishment, especially useful for anyone like me who was hopeless at music AND sport! Languages can still be a highly satisfying accomplishment - there is another kind of melody ...

Re: Munch's colour slides!

THANKS for these!! I remember all the faces, and the names come back too. I was a little older, but not much - I went through 1's 1960-62. I escaped to 4's in the Lower Fourth, as I simply made so much trouble and probably drove Millie up the wall as much as she infuriated me. Wow, don't memories co...

Re: favourite comfort food at Hertford

Thames mud and barges and veg. pie were among my favourites, but NOT the rice pud. Sago was far more palatable! Apricot Eve's was another of my favourites. Preferably without custard. Cheese fish was not exactly a favourite, but when we knew we were going to have fish on Fridays, thsi was the best o...
