Yeah, I spent a good 5 years staring at that one. Would I be right in saying the organist reminded me of The Hunchback of Notre Dame?
Yes, but MUCH uglier!

What an excellent idea - a tie we can wear that looks good/smart. To be honest, I now wear my Old Blues tie and socks together on "bad tie" days....one of my colleagues where's a Burberry tie and matching socks, that's how bad it gets! I'll try to take some pics of the three CH tie designs I've got,...

I'm sure there was an organist with five fingers and thumb in one of them? I've got a DVD (converted from old Betamax TV recordings!) of a number of the televised CH services (Highway with Harry Secombe(spelling?) and the 11th Nov Rememberance service from 1990?) I'm sure the pictures are quite visi...

And the nature of this business opportunity??

Have to be honest, this reminds me of the "earn 2k per month working from home" when it's actually, "stuff 20,000 envelopes from home"

:D :D

Hope I'm wrong, so would be interested in the nature of the opportunity??

Can anyone explain why CH do seem to be so reluctant to take-up offers from Old Blues to come and speak, or input with the kids, giving advice about uni's, careers etc.etc?

This seems to be a recurring theme.....

I will be interested to see exactly what the new format is about. The Blue has been the only regular communication that Old Blues receive (assuming they're in the CH Club) and even if they're not involved particularly, they find out via The Blue what the school is up to, what's changing etc. etc. I ...

It's one of those unsolvables as far as I'm aware - hence being known as a paradox....

Arrow fired at you from 100m away. Travelling at 25m per second. Should take 4 seconds to get there? In 2 secs it travels 50m. In 1 more second it travels another 25m Next 0.5 seconds it travels another 12.5m etc.etc.etc It always has to travel half the remaining distance in half the previous time.....
