New Hall mail redirection

To any Sinner denizens leaving New Hall this week, and wondering what will happen to their mail (since New Hall say they will return to sender anything that arrives after Saturday): in case you weren't already aware, Royal Mail will *not* set up a redirect for you. Apparently they do not redirect fr...

My academic daughter lived in DRH last year. Silverfish in her bathroom, too (I gather they got gradually bigger as the year went on... some new super-evolutionary process aided by mould, perhaps).

Re:

I'm not saying that knowledge and belief are the same things, but that one tends to presuppose the other - at least where religion is concerned. (I think that's what I'm trying to say, anyway). Essentially: if you're a theist, you *believe* it is possible to *know* that god exists. If you're an athe...
