I was listening to the radio the other day, and they announced a forthcoming programme called 'Cross Incontinence'. Sounded interesting, I thought, thinking of my own brushes with the subject, on occasion, so I decided to leave the radio on, and listen to it.

As the evening wore on, several announcers mentioned the programme, and one said 'we will be visiting Egypt to discuss the urgent matter there.' I had missed what urgent matter it was, because I was visiting the loo - which I thought apposite! ;D

Anyway, at 9pm, the programme started, and I was hysterical, because it was actually called 'Crossing Continents'. None of the four announcers had been - despite all having a proper BBC accent - able to separate the words!

I listened anyway.


I wanted to share some things from a little book I have called 'The School of Manners, or Rules for Children's Behaviour', written in the 1600's for boys. This version published in 1701.

Are you fed up with the manners of modern youth? Read what they were being taught then, and compare it with now. And laugh - ironically.
