I Got A Detention
When I was about 10 I was caught during the lunch break in a part of the school playing field that was strictly out of bounds. The lady teacher who caught me sent me to stand in the corridor outside the headmaster's study. I was afraid that she ...

I Think The Cane Should Be Bought Back Into The School System
Bizarre story in The Times this morning about the headmaster of a school in Wales who says he will expel any pupil he finds having a “relationship”. It would be much easier if he could just cane them all! 🤔

I Have Something to Say
I HATE WATERCRESS! I had an excellent lunch today at the restaurant in the National Portrait Gallery in London. But the main course was covered in (unadvertised) watercress. I have noticed this in other restaurants. What is the point, even if you li...

I Witnessed Corporal Punishment At School
Back in the late 1960s I taught for a term at a boys' prep school before going up to university. One morning, the matron came into the staff room and announced "P****** was caned last night". What I remember particularly was the slight...

I Received Corporal Punishment At School
At English schools in the 1950 and 60s, the standard punishment for serious or repeated offences was the cane. At my school canings were always given in private, so none of us knew exactly how many strokes other boys got, but we always assumed it was...

I Have a Suggestion for Similar Worlds
When one member blocks another, that person should be told. It can be puzzling and distressing to discover some time later that someone has blocked you.

I Love Opera
O du mein holdern Abendstern - which used to be translated as O star of eve. Wonderful aria from Act 3 of Tannhauser by Wagner, in which Wolfram expresses his (unrequited) love for Elisabeth. For the last half hour I have been watching Venus, the eve...

I Am Interested In Politics
The slogan of the Liberal Democratic Party in the British general election is "Open, Tolerant, United". It seems to me that it is very difficult for a party, or a country, to be all three, at least to the same extent. If a party is open and...

I Love Music
I am looking for a piece of music to end a funeral, to be played while the mourners leave. Something reasonably positive and uplifting. Not too jolly, obviously, but not too sombre either - the deceased was a cheerful soul. Classical or popular. I wo...
