    Christmas Finally Arrives In Wem

    Having taught the beginners along with John Roberts for the majority of 2005, it is very sad to have finally said goodbye to Wem. In order for all the children to be credited in the 'beginner' section: Bethany Hill received the award for the most improved learner of the year. Nimah Carroll...

    contact lenses, stigmatisms, and reading music

    Unfortunately I have the same prescription and attempted contact lenses but due to the heavy weighing, any time I did blink (at a reduced rate to normal) they swirled around in my eyes causing blurring until the weights settled accordingly. Although it resembled the feeling of slight...

    Terry Wogan Endorsement

    How can you possibly imagine that listening to radio 2 (millions of listeners/most popular breakfast show) constitutes an anorak when this is a BRASS BAND forum! Irony at it's best.

    Firstly I must comment Dinnie - it was excellent and a most professional Moderator skill that you used in the first post - if it was spoilt for people it was their own fault. As for the rest of people well how exciting!!!!!! I'm very sad about Dumbledore but can't help attributing the...

    Sacrificing TMP was worth it!!!!

    As some of you long standing members may recall many moons ago I used to be an active member of tmp but made the decision to prioritize and sacrifice my constant browsing for the success of my education. So despite: holding down two part-time jobs (learning support in a prison and at a...

    I'm really confused! So not only did you get into the final last time, you've been asked into stage two this time aswell? I can certianly commend your playing ability.

    Grumpy women of any age...

    1) People who bear grudges. Life is too short and cutting off your nose to spite your face doesn't generate success for everyone in the long run. 2) Band politics. They spoil enjoyment and at the end of the day, they're run like the politics of the country in so much as there are key...

    problem players

    I think you'll find that most decent people are governed by something called a conscience so it is fair to place a certain amount of trust in individuals to take responsibility for their own attendance and if they believe in the team work ethic, they will work for the good of the whole band - be...

    problem players

    Well I'd regard myself as a 'committed member' and personally I don't get annoyed with people who don't attend too many rehearsals. People can govern their own levels of committment and what may be acceptable for one may be different for another. That's the spice of life but providing everyone...

    problem players

    Wow - this has been an extremely interesting debate to read. Personally I think Sparkling_Quavers has it sussed. It our house in January it became apparent that my husband wasn't going to be able to committ to rehearsals and if he did, it would compromise my attendance (childcare issues) so he...

    What's the best accent?

    I find a Geordie accent an extremely admirable feature of the male species (it's not so nice coming from a female). The one I detest the most has to be scouse - it has a terrible reputation and I find it difficult to take anyone seriously when they have a scouse accent (it is worth noting...

    Is tMP Addictive??

    Lynichie - you'll be glad to know that I've combatted my addiction! Ha! I was once addicted but can safely say that I'm a recovering addict. Just pop in approx once per month but to be honest I find that if you're not an addict and not here frequently then it's very difficult to get involved...

    Leaving 'do' speech-jokes.

    I'm not too good on the old joke front so can't help there but a bit of a tip - keep it short and sweet. No-one likes a speech that waffles on (I'm a waffler and even i know that)!! Best of luck with the new job.

    School Dinners Dissertation

    Thamks for all of your comments, it's really appreciated and they're all very valid points. Unfortunately for a degree dissertation I have to base my findings on research and not just common sense - that'll be why psychology is a science then!

    Hi All I'm now in my third and final year of my Psychology degree and my individual project (dissertation) is based around school dinners. I am looking at children's attitudes towards healthy eating and then seeing if their attitudes are reflected in their behaviour (by monitoring what they...
