J.R. - have you nicked my Dad's jokes? That just made me remember, one of the most brilliant, memorable and clever 'jokes' here was made by your dad on the first day of my squits. I was lucky enough to have him for English on my 2nd form, and in our very first lesson, we were there waiting for him ...

Lucky lucky you. How long have you lived there? Do you ever get bored of it? We've spent a couple of weeks every summer for as long as I can remember near the Place des Vosges, such a beautiful and relatively little-known place by visitors.

Gosh. Nice to see the CCTV is working in a positive manner. He was actually stupid enough to be caught in the act by a member of staff! But the CCTV has been something in the refurbished houses that has been a good success; a number of people who have brains small enough to do things like open othe...

Dr. Maddren still used this trick as late as between about 1999 and 2001, when he came back to Peele B as a house tutor. There were things like ten pound notes or CDs dotted blatantly around the house, and it seemed to work, but I don't know if anyone got caught doing it, because everyone was warned...

Mistaken identity

There was a theory recently that he was some Czech man who'd disappeared - until he came on Czech TV to prove that he was not the Piano Man!
