A Regicide one of us? Not me, down with them I say! Bugger Limerick's Monuments. Some might say he is a reason why the Hibernians became revolting and required King Billy (not to mention Camperdown, Duncan and the failure Tone) to deliver a trouncing. I suppose the difference between Cantabrian clockwise caldron stirring and that practised around Mare Nostrum might have given rise to some animosity too although the results of their batwool syntheses seem mighty similar to me. You'll be telling me next that the republican bastard only did it for the potatoes.

I went back to school on Sunday (virtually in lieu of the usual 'Old boys' urn-tea and bickie beano) we had both an English lesson (in which I became surprised at how much I had learned since leaving) and a history lesson (at which I wasn't too bad either) I did note however that the death of HLM and self styled supreme founding governor of the State Superstition was presented in a style to satisfy the grottiest of small boys. I knew he had burst but not that the 'extreme post mortem flatulence' may have actually caused an explosion or that the more liquified portion of the remains had not been decently contained. In fact not contained at all and very far from decent.

Opening hours on Sundays necessitated us missing school on that day. On 'Good' Friday the boys in blue would march into the poshest of places to ensure there was no after-school activity.

Profuse apologies crew type persons but I will have to forgo the upcoming festivities due to the injun wot is broke and needs my (careful) attention and manipulation with my "magic fingers" or so the young ladies tell me they are. ES please feel free to represent the injuneering department and wave the fleg as vigorously as your wee arms will allow. Marching around the deck is a suitable alternative to Finaghy and Squeek and Eric will be happy to accompany you in full regalia of sash and bowler hat.

I would ask that you take particular care with Squeek as the bowler hat tends to fall over his eyes and I'd hate to see him go arse over tit through the rails.

P.S. I calculate that 530 rounds of the deck should equate to the traditional march length, you will note I have calculated the route to Finaghy which is a bit shorter than Edenderry so you see I DO care after all. Anyhoo Finaghy has nicer grass

When the injuns are back on line and just as soon as I can get rid of this Metalock edjit I will join you lot for a much needed refreshment.

Glad I didn't go to your skool at least mine was an approved one

'School' was metaphorical in this context. I thought of using 'body of the Kirk' but I thought that might confuse.

As far as I know not even those suspected to have 'uranian' leanings wore bras and whilst some of the 5 matrons might have enjoyed us practising ours was over 70, another had a better set of whiskers than any of us could manage and the one that fancied me had varicose body (and a radio which hummed, her excuse for inviting me to her bedsit).

Never use the word lay with a plastico. You may be taken at your word and there is quite enough rock around already to tax Sir W's wheelhouse staff beyond the limit of their bank accounts.

No stay-a-beds this weather, the IMarEST annual Zoomference is on.

Never could handle a virtual cocktail party or banquet, always end up going to bed sober, hungry and probably alone.
Grosvenor House or bust. Mark my word them bloody scientists and lab technicians will kill the Institute with their 15 ppm's and frigging red tides.

Like the IEE (now IET). Embrace those associated, even loosely, or whither (not a reference to our successful and just moved-on CEO).
