I hope your DS enjoys his Latin . I've actually found it so useful - a lot more so than some of the other subjects I studied (Economics springs to mind). I draw the line at Tacitus though.

We also love the optional anchovies and the library book sales.

Thanks for a very entertaining and informative report.
Ah, shame.

And, yes - Poot has already discovered how useful Latin is - despite not being old enough to quote Catullus to girlfriends...

But I don't know how you can say that about friend Tacitus - surely he is the most relevant of Romans these days? Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges...and all that.

Thanks for answering my nosy question!

My latin education was straight out of How To Be Topp

The teacher was Mr Chips and his lesson plans were pre war (the first one)

How about nunc est bibendum ?

Because the Dibb is obviously the place to swap Latin epigrams

Mais oui bien sr!



And...it's five o'clock somewhere, right?


Love that about your teacher - giggle - but I won't lie, when I found out that my (now) husband had both Latin and Greek - I thought it was pretty sexy. Even if he remembers less Catullus and more "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres"...

LOL...a "Texas Tuxedo" is "double denim" - so a denim jacket and jeans.


Thanks for sticking with us!

Two really interesting reports there. I like the sound of the stadium garden. (Peter wonders if they grow hot dogs - silly Peter!)

When we first moved to London there were a few branches of Wendy's around. I remember them having square burgers. They weren't that nice and I'm not surprised they have disappeared from the UK.

I know I've had a Wendy's *somewhere* - maybe when R.C. and I drove the Lewis and Clark trail - in Montana, perhaps? To be honest, though...I, too, would have been tempted by "The Baconator". It's the name! - and you know how I feel about streaky bacon...



If you like baseball, the Fenway tour is well worth doing - I was glad we squeezed it into the schedule.

I am having a lovely time re-visiting this holiday - so thanks for that, Gill and Peter!
