Feed the World

Today I heard the new version of Feed the World and saw the video. It was shown on BBC early this evening and I was delighted to see that Sugarbabes are part of the line-up. You may wonder why a 'more mature' person such as myself, and even worse, a more mature person who keeps telling everyone that nothing decent has been written since the Sixties, should be so pleased about the appearance of this group or even know of its existence!
The answer is that when Heidi Range (the blond one) was six years old, she was in my class. So that's my one and only claim to fame. Pathetic isn't it!!! :)

Well, at least it's a good encounter with an ex-pupil. Catherine met one of hers when she was on the examination table just before she gave birth to Cei:

"Ah yes," said the midwife, "Dilating nicely. By the way, you used to teach me biology."

Everyone needs a claim to fame lol

I watched the video yesterday evening too and my 1st thought was 'I must be getting old' I hardly recognise any of them....and my second thought was 'it's not a good as the first version'! It doubtless is but I loved the original. Nice to see 'one of yours' has made her way in life tho :o)

Alan, that must be the ultimate indignity to be accosted by an ex-pupil, however nicely, when you're in that position! lol
Gemmak, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I did like the new one almost as much as the original.

Elspeth, I'm working on having a claim to fame that doesn't rely on someone else, but I don't think I'm going to get there!
