Re: Beating retreat, end of term.

Senior Drum Major in my day (forgotten his name could definitely do it, and also performed the 'triple toss' (3 complete revolutions in the air) during Beating retreat.

Re: Old Blues Day, 2012

I knew of Bill and remember exactly where I was when I was told he had died - in the dormitory of Consiton Youth Hostel just before Christmas in my UF so must have been December 85 (which would tie in with Frances' comment above, it was the end of the first term after the merger), we were told by Ga...

Re: School Prospectus

Could I add to the dissenters who are voicing concern about the cost? I have school age children and therefore may have had an interest in going, however I would request prospectuses of those schools I am interested in rather than receiving an unsolicited glossy mailshot.

Re: Aspects of Housey 1984-90

Finally got round to watching part 1 - Ben Monaghan hosting squits tea, where I think we may have the first 'TV' appearance of James (Simon) D'arcy about 5.30 in, perhaps Madonna saw this before casting him in WE?

Re: Some Sad News - Michael Carrington

Very Sad, taught me my 'o' level set texts, and I remember him being quite dismissive of the Terence Stamp/Julie Christie film version of 'Far from the madding crowd' as being too shallow and not showing the depth Hardy gave his characters.

Re: Happy Birthday DBTS

JR, I was thinking more that DBTS was possibly unaware that Midget had passed away, and she was the OP.

Re: Windows Scam warning

In a trade magazine I have recently received there was a full page advert from the Fiji department of commerce advertising their capability to host 24/7 call centres with primarily English Language services, but also multi-language facilities. I have no interest, but was wondering if they would prov...
