:lol: when I was there, I never heard about Penguin bashing, although I would get seriously pissed off that we had to walk all the way into Horsham in our school uniform that only got dry-cleaned at the end of term - seriously sweaty - yeuch! that was so grim, giving kids woollen uniforms, even in ...

In my day you weren't even allowed to speak unless your leg was falling off,............. And youngsters these days say they have it tough! and when did you leave? We didn't even have access to phones. As for the leg business I got into sh.tstreet one night. On parade into dining hall I felt a ston...

I never had a detention or a drill in my seven years at CH. I think I got two in 9 years. The first I forget but the second was a laugh; it was given by a master in his first term out of uni and I was simply one member of a chemistry class which got detention en masse. Slight problem; he was my jun...

Re: Seriously Non-PC Terminology at CH

...(except presumably kids of Jewish extraction, who kept their heads very low for reasons of self-preservation). Nothing to do with the thread, but, there was a chap on Radio 4 this week (Monday morning, I think) who was talking about his father who went to CH and was, at the time, the only Jewish...

http://tonaz.altervista.org/zidane.html I think it's shameful that the person with the worst disciplinary record in the tournament is voted the most outstanding player. Whilst bookings are all very entertaining it's worth noting that the Holland v Portugal match alone contained more yellow & red ca...

Re: I am NOT A GRANDMOTHER!!!

Thought I would share this with you all - the DNA test is back, and my son is not a father as pre thought, which means I AM NOT A GRANDMA!

I can't remember if I mentioned we had a leak in our road last year which took 10 weeks and 5 attempts to repair. It has come back. Last week we had a tiny little damp patch on the edge of the pavement, this week it is running down the road. we had that last August - they repaired it quick enough, ...

I've not seen the retreat since I left in 1972. Are Old Blues allowed to attend? I'm sure I've read on here that they are not but maybe I'm mistaken :?: :?: There doesn`t seem to be any way anyone can prevent OBs coming, (or anyone else!) although, as Richard says, if great masses turn up.........!...

Even when we were planning this far in advance there were only 2 possible dates in the school's calendar for next summer. As it will be held on a Sunday the feeling is that a fairly informal atmosphere will be appropriate, perhaps involving watching a rehearsal for Beating Retreat, sporting events ...

Just keep off the wine - it is so badly transported that it is normally undrinkable. Brahma Chopp used to be my staple though Extra (from some nordeste brewer) is very good. For your caipiringha use 51 (though IMHO you should pound only half of the limes and leave the other half in chunks). If thing...

To get a water meter ................ the water company can just put one in without any consultation. If they do put one in keep an eye on it yourself as in the 4 months I have been a lettings manager we have had two which have leaked and the poor tenants have had ENORMOUS water bills.

I didn't even get the prize for the largest number of strokes - that went to a boy in Peele B (I do remember his name but I will spare his blushes). I got 2nd place - I think. Could you tell us what (or who) you were stroking? I couldn't possibly comment on the fact that you came second ... :wink: ...
