NEST OF SINGING BIRDS ! – not a true description of Mossley at this time of the year when the temperature is dropping- ahead of its time really. Sometimes we have a St Luke’s summer to look forward to but the long range forecast is for much of the same. When the sun does come out for a couple of hours everthing is magical and we feel truly blessed; that is, until the sky clouds over and it begins to hail. It was ever thus, as they say.
AN EARLY START – when St Thomas More started school (circa 1485) at the age of seven, the school day lasted from six in the morning until six in the evening, winter and summer, with two intermissions of an hour (sometimes two hours) for a morning breakfast and dinner at noon.

WHO’S RIGHT? – a rabbi held court, two women with complaints against each other. He listened to the first, and persuaded by her tears, said ‘You are right.’ The other women said ‘Wait till you have heard me.’ And the rabbi listened and said ‘You are right.’ The rabbi’s wife, perplexed, said: ‘How can they both be right?’ And the rabbi said to her, ‘You are right too.’!
