Re: James-Jacques-Joseph Tissot

Thanks to both of you - that's fascinating. I did a quick search for Tissot on this site before posting, in case it had been covered previously, but for some reason did not find that thread... some interesting views displayed on it! I also had a look through my back issues of The Blue and found the ...

James-Jacques-Joseph Tissot

A couple of weeks ago I found myself in Toledo, Ohio. Now this is far from the most inspiring small city in the world, but it has one redeeming feature - a quite wonderful art museum; probably better than anything you'd find in this country outside London to be honest, and a great surprise in an oth...

Re: Lamb House Photos

The "missing" year from the above set - Lamb B, 1988: (click on image for larger version) http://chforum.info/pictures/LambB1988x640.jpg Sorry about the slightly poorer quality (including a couple of ink splodges, and that remarkable sheen from the bands) - it turned up in a box full of other stuff ...

Extreme Cello - Four Peaks Challenge...

Hi everyone, It's been a few months since I was last on here, but I know this provoked a lot of interest the last time I mentioned it! As some of you will remember, I play in a trio called " The Extreme Cellists " - who play cellos in unusual locations for good causes. This summer the we will be und...

Re: Carmen Incipii

Very good!

But presumably the tune would have to be called something like medius urbs?

Re: Old Blues on telly tonight x2

Just ambling along watching trashy telly, and the Clare Dawson (Col? left 87 or 88) pops up on James May's programme about his sisters' top toys (7pm BBC2) Now 'Orchestral Director' of the London Oratory School. Flicked to Channel 4 after Top Gear, and Jason Flemyng pops up in "League of Extraordin...

Re: School Rules (pocket edition) (Horsham)

in the spring before we started we got sent a little yellow booklet of school rules, some of them absolutely hilarious. i got it sent in 1996, and it was the 1993 (or possibly 1992) edition. when i got there i found that most of the rules no longer applied. grrrrreat. I think the edition was actual...

Do let me know when you are coming this way. Which route do you intend for Snowdon? I'll post details up here a few weeks in advance, but our planned date for Snowdon at the moment is July 27th (Sunday). We'll probably take the Llanberis path, simply because it'll be easiest with the cellos. If it ...

Good post Jeremy. Are you still touring churches with your cello? :lol: Not churches this year: in fact, that was limited to a 12-day stretch last year. We did do a "Monopoly Board challenge" a few weeks ago: performing at each of the 22 streets on the Monopoly board in a day. But we're saving ours...

As someone who has only posted here from time to time, but have "lurked" a bit more frequently than that, I can only offer my own rationale for behaving as I do, but it may be similar to some others at least. First off, I'm not at all averse to the internet: in fact, I am a regular (i.e. several tim...

Somebody was talking about this on Radio 4 this morning. I switched on after he had started so I didn't catch the name but wondered whether it was an OB or not. Yes, that was me! If anyone's interested, you can "listen again" on the radio 4 web site by clicking this link . It's about 17 minutes int...

Indeed it is. I contacted him before the tour started, but unfortunately he was away on holiday when we passed through Lichfield.

Wow! I heard about this on the radio and thought how brilliant etc etc but I didn't DO anything. I would have done if there had been a demonstrable Old Blue connection. My local Cathedral is Chichester.............tell me how it went there? Kerre Chichester was nice... although we didn't actually g...

I once got bashed, but in rather strange circumstances. It was in the middle of the Swan Walk shopping centre in Horsham, on a busy Friday afternoon, with lots of people around. This bloke walked past me, and said something to me that I didn't quite catch. Foolishly (in hindsight), I turned round an...
