NAME: James (Jas) Cowen  James & Ayleen Cowen James Cowen galleryThen & Now

DATE: 20 October 2013

CONNECTION WITH QE: pupil 1956-63

I have recently been staying in a caravan by the sea thanks to the Sun newspaper's off season booking at holiday camps or caravan sites (£9.50 per person for the 4 days). One night I was singing Green grows the rushes-O to my wife and have to admit I could not get it exacly right for all the numbers after singing it so often. Am I really getting old? On my return I looked it up on Wikipedia and found the info really informative and would recommend it to others. Apparently some confusion may be had for some due to the different versions such as the 12 Apostles version and the Dilly Song. The same may also be said of the 12 Days Of Christmas song, which I also looked up. Maybe this is true of other songs. It was interesting to hear about the different ideas about the 9 bright shiners, the 8 April rainers, the 7 stars in the sky, the 6 proud walkers, the 5 symbols at your door, the 3 rivals and the 2 lily-white boys, clothe them all in green HO-Ho.
