Re: CH dogs

Revd Garry Dobbie had a blind and, as it turned out, rather randy spaniel called Hugo. One particularly warm summer's day Dobbie decided to take our class out for a walk rather than sit inside. Hugo came with us, making it a very memorable afternoon as one girl (who I wont name) bent down to pick up...

Re: Spy in the bag

I think they should ask either Derren Brown or one of the writers of Sherlock to try and come up with a plausible way of padlocking yourself into a bag. But even if they managed to come with a solution this still wouldn't answer the question: "why"? I don't usually go in for conspiracy theories but ...

Spy in the bag

I hope no one finds this "goulish" but I was wondering what people's thoughts were on the Gareth Williams story. It sounds like something out of an Agatha Christie novel or an episode of Sherlock. Anyone got any interesting theories as to how he ended up in a padlocked bag?

Re: Can you hear the bells?

Alan, the problem is that youtube (and internet chat rooms in general) are swamped with depressingly high numbers of trolls and keyboard warriors, most of whom have nothing better to do than spew forth whatever crappola springs from their tiny little minds at 3am. You really mustn't base your experi...

Re: Can you hear the bells?

If you'd ever hung around in Church of England circles you'd think being gay was almost a requirement. There are loads of gay vicars. I've even knew one who had his "friend" (a Greek bodybuilder no less) living in the vicarage with him. I'm not trying to denigrate or deny your experiences, Alan - I'...
