Yes, I did think of getting an old-lady-with-cup-of-tea but vanity forbade it. Actually, I am wee bit ashamed of having a larger Bagpuss than you - never the intention. But before xstj gets too severe I'll PM you about this with Mike's link to a Bagpuss site.

Mike was very helpful in directing me to a Bagpuss site when I asked about an avatar. Alas, the one I wanted with 'merry' smile and curly hat is 100 pixels. Ideas above his/her station!

You were there, I wasn't, so I need to be more humble. But we have heard from a current pupil that he is a changed man. Could this be possible?

Don't think there's any doubt about the anger. And then?

I find Bella's responses - often under pressure - both life-giving and warming. Thank you Bella.

I don't like this thread - it's nasty and vindictive. And before anybody complains that the subject was also - consider this: how is hounding someone going to serve the cause of justice? Is it not, in its own way, an abuse?

Good point Tom. But if we are to encourage parents and SES members to post on this board then we do have to be more hospitable as Ben showed in a different thread. Bashing them as soon as they stick their noses above the parapet will serve no good purpose. You don't like the views expressed? No need...

Welcome to the board, Elizabeth. Your daughter, Mary, has already posted to us off the coast of Africa. I feel sure that she will make a very fine doctor in due course.

At some point PPIAG will have to come out into the open if it wishes its claim to represent former pupils to have any validity. You can lurk in the shadows for only so long, but after a while you just look silly.
