That is about the most I retain of my school boy Latin so is there any chance of a translation of the pen portraits on the staff page? At the moment it looks as if several are following the practice I adopted at school of cribbing one another's homework.

amamus, amatis, amant ..... :)

Partly it's because the Boss requested that his Mods write a bit about themselves....and most of us just can't. I would hate to go for a job interview these days and have to write such soul withering things as 'personal statements'.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

....apparently :)

A depressing feature of aging is the increasing awareness of how much one doesn't know combined with the realisation of the limited time available to fill the vast gaps.

I'm beginning to grasp what Socrates meant when he saiid, "at last I know nothing." And he didn't know Latin either. Even Shakespeare claimed little Latin and less Greek. Shakespeare did, however, have an extensive knowledge of bushcraft and the natural world thanks to his childhood.

Ah well, you live and learn, then did and forget it all.

Isn't it funny though how random passages of latin still linger in the old grey matter ?

O me miserum, sempere labora dun funds, sempere labora in milites.....
and I can still do the declensions and conjugations.

No damned use nowadays whatsoever though.
