Aged about 10 or 11, during a lunch break I was caught by a teacher, Miss Moran, in a part of the school playing fields that was strictly out of bounds. To make matters worse, when she asked me what I was doing I said something wet, like "Nothin...

I Love Chatting Online
By contrast to a post in this group 20 minutes or so ago, I DO. I'll chat with anyone who's real and polite. Why not? If we don't get on, we can stop.

At my first school, aged 8, I and the girl who sat next to me were caught playing a stupid game during a lesson. We didn't receive a specific punishment, but were given a severe dressing down by the headmistress and were humiliated by our class ...

I Believe In Corporal Punishment
I was intrigued by pictures today of a young woman receiving a public caning in Indonesia. Leaving aside the bizarre nature of the "offence" for which she was being punished, it seemed that she was caned on her back. Surely that is cruel an...

I 60's Canings
At my grammar school, if a boy was caned, a notice would be placed on the notice board outside the headmaster's study: "M Smith has been beaten for smoking" or whatever.

I 60's Canings
At my junior school, if you did anything wrong you got a detention (one lady teacher in particular gave detentions for extremely minor things). If you got four detentions in one term you were caned. In my first year I remember a boy in my class burst...

I Love Italy
The church in my avatar is the basilica of San Benedetto in Norcia, birthplace of St Benedict and his sister St Scholastica. It was destroyed by an earthquake this morning.

I Love Good Beer
I went to the Great British Beer Festival today. As well as hundreds of British beers there were, for my European friends on SW, excellent draught beers from Italy, Germany and the Czech Republic. Sadly, Denmark was represented only in bottles.

I Got The Cane At School
At my junior school (age 8-11, the lower school of a leading boys' grammar school), all misdemeanours were punishable with a detention. Four detentions in one term meant the cane. The first time a member of my class was up for the cane was, I t...

Well, actually I didn't, but I thought I was going to. I was 10 or 11 and I was caught out of bounds during the lunch break. The mistress who caught me sent me to stand outside the head's study. I thought she was going to ask the headmistre...
