Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

I sent an e-mail to two Norwegian friends to send my greetings, good wishes and the assurance of my prayers on the occasion of H M King Harald V's Silver Jubilee. May God bless him and his family and realm, and in particular my own Norwegian friends.
