After ringing a quarter of Cambridge Maximus in Handbell Stadium last Saturday, tomorrow we're going for Yorkshire. I've hardly ever rung it (although I do have a memory of an unsuccessful peal attempt in the mid-1990s) so I thought I'd better do a bit of practice with Mabel. I started...

In the previous article, about Bernard Taylor's composition of Yorkshire, I quoted his comment that Peter Sanderson had produced a similar composition. I think it must be this one, which is also in the handbell compositions section of www.ringing.info.

(I know it is April and therefore technically spring.  But, you know, only technically.  The body clock is...

Apparently there is now a psychometric test to measure 'tough-mindedness' or resilience (a term which my informant prefers, and I agree with her).  Although long known in sports coaching, it is a concept which has, I am told, recently entered general employment in, er, employment.
