For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Talking about the pen, writing letters is also a dying trend.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

 

I suggest a movement to bring back the pen! A proper pen with real ink and a nib!

I like it. I propose the first session should be a knitting and sewing sesh at GP, i have many shirts that need buttoning. To thread a needle, i am told, is to be at one with the world.

The Beatles The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill Lyrics

 

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?



He went out hunting with his elephant and gun
In case of accidents he always took his mom
He's the all-American bullet-headed Saxon mother's son

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?


Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies
Bill and his elephants were taken by surprise
So Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?


The children asked him if to kill was not a sin
"Not when he looked so fierce", his mommy butted in
"If looks could kill, it would have been us instead of him".

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?





Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill
Bungalow Bill?

Ok-here is an art that is dying out -the leisured gentleman. Amateur sportsman, big game hunter, port and wine after dinner and slightly dim.
Weekends chasing grouse and billious noses.
Engaged but never married - a man's man
Snooker after dinner and kippers for breakfast

When will we see their like again?
