Re: Sex 'n' Drugs 'n' Rock'n'Roll Part 1: Substance Abuse

Big drugs bust in 1987 or 1988 with a load of people expelled. It was followed by the whole senior school having to sit through David Kossoffs anti drugs one man show about how his son became a smack addict when he was in Free and then dying of an overdose. All it seemed to do was sell a lot of Pau...

Re: Happy Birthday Alan

Congratulations - and enjoy the theatre. I understand that the show is form-i-dable. This should get you in the mood.

Re: Mea Culpa

Being a bit of an all-or-nothing character I am guilty of going OTT when doing a garden project, going on a diet, being in love, recycling, reading a wonderful book,Tibet, taking part in something singing/dramatic... Ditto especially anything emotional like being in love. It's hard work! A conflagr...

Re: Band Concert 3PM Big School

Jollorific is an excellent word. And don't forget that a certain W. Shakespeare invented many new words now used regularly in our mother tongue.

Re: Where are.......

We haven't heard from Canteen Cath for a while either. I hope everything is ok. I'm around and yes, everything is fine. I'm struggling a bit with the tiredness at the moment (still being sick but better in between bouts) so am having naps and going to bed early when I might otherwise be on here! Bu...

Re: Jokes, please.....

These were left in our choir stalls yesterday. A mother is a person who seeing that there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she doesn’t actually like pie. A suburban mother’s role is to deliver her children obstetrically once and in a 4x4 forever after. It is stran...

Re: St Valentine

Previous references to Mrs Ajarn were, I confess, mildly inaccurate. We aren't married. I thought Romance had been brutally purged from my life, but apparently a smattering remains. On St. Valentine's Day I found myself asking The Question. The Answer was "Yes". http://bestsmileys.com/love2/1.gif T...

Re: Weddings...

Terribly sad for someone so young, and of course his family and friends. It serves to remind us all to make the most of each day as it comes.

Re: "Lady Bountiful and the Bluecoat Boys" Friday 15th February

I have seen the expression non-Foundationer and have assumed this meant somebody for whom full fees were paid. If it does not mean this, what does it mean? Non-foundationers are pupils whose parents work at the school either as teaching staff or other paid members of the 'works'. I don't know thoug...

Well, I definitely subscribe to the theory of 'trying before you buy'. After all you'd never buy a car without taking it for a test drive first, would you?

Re: on the subject of buttons ....

just got my Autumn Special edition of Housey (a bit late but that is another story!) and a photo on the third page has me puzzled. It depicts a boy and a girl blowing a fanfare as a tape is being cut. The oddity is that the boy seems to have only two buttons on his right cuff whilst the girl has at...
