Re: Housey 'Peaceful Revolution'

After a prolongued internet absence I have just discovered the Facebook group and this thread. Seems like a lot has happened! I have never met the new headmaster so can't really pass judgement, though at a recent Housey reunion the overwhelming opinion of him by both current and old blues, plus pare...

Re: POOR OLD BELGIUM...CHOP IT UP?

it was the first time I ate chips with salad cream/mayonnaise. Me too, and I have had mayo with my chips every time since! Going off on a tangent, I was in France recently and I asked for some vinegar with my chips and they looked at me as if I was crazy...then upon asking other people it became ap...

Re: POOR OLD BELGIUM...CHOP IT UP?

Purely an impulse idea with no expertise or thought, and easier said than done of course, but what about... Wallonia becomes part of France, Flanders becomes part of the Netherlands, and Brussels an independent bilingual micro-state, remaining the political centre of Europe. Having been there a few ...

Re: Any Senior Grecians or School Monitors out there

I wasn't an SG or a school monitor, although on our year, those that were nearly a school monitor (such as myself apparently!) were written a letter by the head saying basically - well done, but you weren't quite good enough... to be honest, I would have rather not known... I got a correspondence l...

Re: What the chuffin' 'eck is this?

Reminds me perhaps unfortunately of my 4 year-old cousin! My uncle, Bangkok resident of 20 years, gets extremely stressed on a daily basis by the maniacal driving. When someone cut him up or pushed into a non-existant gap in front of him or threatened to wipe him out, he sometimes used to exclaim &q...

Predictive text curiosities

The predicitive text on my mobile (which I have found no way of disactivating in 2 and a half years of owning it) often comes up with bizarre and amusing variations of what I want to write. For some reason, it has an excellent geographical knowledge of Russia, India and China, amongst others. If i w...

Re: What if? .....

I'm with Nick Clegg on this one - if they don't let the aid in, do airlifts, whatever the Burmese regime says. Surely they wouldn't dare to shoot down a UK/US/UN etc. aeroplane, fearing the reperscussions from it. Although, having said that, the international community, tragically, hasn't ever seeme...

Re: James Hooper And Rob Gauntlett

According to the article, £100,000 in debt...if that is true, I would certainly go on the public speaking circuit, à la Mrs. Blair - they could earn it all back in an hour!

Re: Food glorious food

That wordsearch was rather scrambled! It was game 'ova'. Though I'm not a yokle so a couple of the words weren't so familiar.

HENce, it was amusing to see the important priorities of the UDSA Farm Service Agency.

Re: Food glorious food

Several of the places have lacked a particular fundamental component but I have been easily able to work around it up until now: when there was no oven, I learned to cook . Yolking apart, Thomas, this is the statement that puzzles me most! It's just that I used to use the oven absolutely all the ti...

Re: ALT+ for accents

Tom, is this any easier? (Laptops: the numeric keypad is usually activated by the Function key. It transforms J,K,L into 1,2,3, etc.) Just a thought, but it might be even easier to copy them all onto a word doc which you can have open and copy/paste when you need to. The site is well worth a visit,...

Re: Food glorious food

In my eggsperience they should be stored in a fridge if possible. But then I don't know the real answer. :rolleyes:

These tasty people should know for sure though:

Banned here too!

For some mysterious reason, a closer look at this ebay item is blocked to German internet addresses. Can anyone tell me why? (The usual reason is that there's a swastika around somewhere, public displays of swastikas being forbidden in Germany.) I've just tried looking at it - and it's blocked in I...
