On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

A topical story

LynneLynne Your TeacherHomePosts: 9,524 mod
Tesco's has caused a real ---- storm over a recent advert for beer and cider. Why?

The advert, which appeared in several newspapers to promote "great offers on beer and cider" in the run-up to Easter said, "Good Friday just got better".

They have pulled the ad, and apologised for any offence caused.

This Easter is proving somewhat controversial as Cadbury and the National Trust were recently criticised for dropping the word Easter from their organised egg hunts.

Sorry guys you can't ignore the word Easter, otherwise we will end up with "The Bunny".

    A topical story

    can often be an old story

    but topical in its name

    Being a good Friday

    always makes the film

    The Good Long Friday

    a topic for this day

    when the script

    of the film

    compared

    to the news


    .

    no chocolates

    in this story

    but look

    at how

    cadbury

    It looks like Tesco lost the plot @Lynne. I wonder how many people these days don't even really know what Easter is about. It's a big deal in many countries still though. I still can't work out how in the UK there's a public holiday on the Friday but not in Catholic countries. They only get Monday off.

    I don't know. Good Friday and Christmas Day have been public holidays in the UK since before records began. I guess the banks didn't dare mess with it.
