    Teaching RE

    I'm ready for the banter, and have no problem with it at all, but think that this article is very interesting regarding the place of RE in our schools: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6417096 It begins: And it goes on... I think a few on here need to really take stock of that...

    A sad indictment of modernity

    Read this article from the Mail online which really saddened me. Two little girls "pretended" individually, to be lost in a shopping centre for an hour, both knew their mother was nearby and could see them, but both acted out their parts well. 616 people walked right by them!!! Only one...

    Product Design/Development Companies

    Has anyone ever used one of these companies. I have contacted one today but have only told them the bare bones of what I've got planned so as not to give the game away and hopefully stir up their interest a little. What am I to expect from these types of companies?

I rang them to ask why i was asked to fill out a tax return and was told it was sent in error and thought no more of it. About a...

I can then possibly sell it, after asking permission from the club of course, which i reckon i...

    Barry Fry

    Seems like we could be up against him in Pre Season, as its rumoured he's interested in the available job at The Daggers! I haven't heard anything about it myself, but their board is full of posts about him and it's supposed to have been mentioned on Sky Sports News.

    Musical input welcome, but not necessarily going to be acted upon!

    So, as some of you know, I will be tying the knot again in October, and we've been set the task of coming up with some music to have playing in the background both for the ceremony and during the meal. We've managed to sort out the music for earlier on, and are part way through stuff for while...

    Mirror mirror on the wall whose the daftest of them all?

    Listening to BBC Essex on the way back Luggy said all needed to think hard about their efforts tonight and that he himself would be taking a look in the mirror.

    Latest Rumours Tilson still not seen his money?

    Thought this was worthy of being in the main forum for now, rather than in the 'Ex-Shrimpers' forum where hardly anyone will see it. A little birdie told me recently that Mr. Tilson still hasn't seen any of the monies that he is owed by the club. That includes wages for 3 months before he was...
