  2. The three word game ..
    Started by SeloChovek 14/07/2010

    Not a new invention, but something which might amuse as a development of the hugely popular Word Association thread .. YOU MUST ONLY use THREE words including the fillers - eg: in, on, at, us, and, but etc. Let's see where the story goes ... but beware, if it gets too rude (and it might) the...

    I thought it might be fun to have a bit of a game. I fancied word association. I'll give a word and the next person adds a word they associate with the one I've given and each person adds another word they asociate with the last So my word is Book :)

    Started by sandgrounder24 17/04/2014

    I was watching something the other day and it said about absent parents in America having their driving license suspended if they didn't pay their child support. It sounds like a good idea and I wonder would it work over here? Surely something should be done as I don't feel that the CSA works. ...

    Hi, Could anybody give me their opinion of this school? Particularly parents whose children attend now. I know league tables and stats aren't the true picture, but Ofsted's recent report indicated that its performance had dropped since its last inspection. Thanks for any help.
