“Schooldays, the happiest days of your life ?”

(A couple of corrections needed: Paddy Meagher instead of Pat Meagher and Jannali Boys’ High School instead of Janelli Boys High School)

    Funny, I’m just listening to an old boy Melbourne Xavier, Frank O’Collins who think the exact opposite of Jesuits to being good. He’s got some interesting ideas: http://youtu.be/zZaPna_F__0

      Thanks David, as you say, he has ‘some interesting ideas’.

        Yeah it’s a completely different take on history. He does a lot of work on trust law, which I’ve been listening to from others, so how I found his stuff.

    Reading this makes me remember one of our conversations about you and the priests in Riverview. Why, oh why, didn’t they do it?

      Shirlita, I’m trying to remember that conversation. Dave
