    Chapter 1

    Definitely read all the stories, preferably in the order they were written. I've read most of them twice. I love Charlie and his friends!
  2. Excellent. It's a splendid story so I'm eager for more.
  3. I was very interested in the references to Forster. When I was an undergraduate at King's in the later 1950s Forster was in residence as a fellow. I even exchanged a few words with him once when we were both late for dinner. As you said within the College he was always referred to as 'Morgan Forster' and other fellows called him 'Morgan'. He was an honorary fellow and didn't teach but took up residence in the College to escape the air raids on London - I think his London house may have been bombed. He sometimes joined in after dinner discussion groups with junior members of the college, and he was President of the Cambridge Humanist Society. After he died he bequeathed the copyright of his writings to the College, so it was actually King's that published Maurice, and the book of short stories the title of which I have forgotten. Incidentally he wrote a novel entitled Room with a View, not Window with a View.

    Stone Heart

    That beautifully sums up my perception of sainthood

    Friends?

    So do I !!
  6. I've just noticed that the President of the Royal Horticultural Society in Britain is called Keith Weed.

    I wonder if prominent gardeners in other realms are also aptly named.

  7. Zeke should find Tyler a job with whatever organisation he works for. I predict that will happen soon. As The story was already complete when I started to read it I expect that has already happened, but I don't cheat by jumping ahead 🙂
  8. Thank you for the links to the videos.

    Chapter 11

    Many thanks for the link to Google Earth. The lads were very brave to stand on that rock !!

    Chapter 3

    I was expecting PHP and scripts, but not quite to soon. Those lads are having fun

    Chapter 2

    I can identify with those characters. I had great fun teaching myself HTML a few years ago. It's wonderful when the layout works just as you hoped. Cascading Style sheets are fun too of course, and the lads have PHP to look forward to 🙂

    The Dark

    I apologise for the multiple postings of my previous comment. It showed up on my screen as a blank comment and I couldn't find any way to delete it.

    The Dark

    I think I shall enjoy this story. There's a mystery and a young man who appears powerless but seems likely to astonish by turning out to be very powerful in an unusual way. I look forward to learning more with each installment.

  15. Thank you very much for that story. I can remember when diapers were called 'nappies' . They were made of some sort of cloth - flannel I suspect -and were washed after use so they could be used again. One could see who had a small baby by looking at the long rows of nappies hanging out to dry. In those days Jacob wouldn't have needed to make that chilly journey.
