The Summer Programme

The Summer programme, is on our website www.u3alondon.org.uk

Note: On the subject of our website, the classes you see there refer to those online that we have been holding during the last 18 months. It is now out of date and will soon be replaced by a description of the classes we intend to hold from 20 September, together with a new hybrid timetable. Let us hope it will really happen.

To make you smile

I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)
I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later. I don’t have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I have my own home. I have a driver’s license and my own car. I’m not afraid of getting pregnant and I don’t have acne. Life is great.
Girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.
I decided to rename the loo the “Jim”. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
When I was a child I thought “Nap Time” was a punishment. Now it feels like a reward.
The biggest lie I tell myself is ”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”
I don’t have grey hair; I have “wisdom highlights”! I’m just very wise.
If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would’ve put them on my knees.
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet.
Why do I have to press one for English when you’re just going to transfer me to someone I can’t understand anyway?

From Ealing U3A

On Thursday, 19 August at 1030 am Rev Dr Nicholas Henderson will give a Zoom talk on:-
“How to read English Country Church-the Tudors to the present”. 
He will cover the Tudor period followed by the destructive changes of the 17th century Commonwealth era through periods of restoration and liturgical change, which are visible in church structures.

If you would like to join this talk, please let Derek Atkinson, Chairman of Ealing u3a, know so that he can forward the Zoom link which will be sent out the day before the talk.  His email is Chairman@u3aealing.org.uk.
Ealing u3a would be delighted to have visitors from other London Region U3A’s attend this talk.”

Best regards
