Re: Time around the world (Tell us what time it is and what you’re doing at this very moment)

My time is HOL time so both are currently 8:22pm. I'm currently putting off doing the washing up and cooking some pasta for dinner (we had a very late lunch today). It's been a long day and feels like I should be in bed already!

Re: All About Lyrics

I recently had to choose the music that will be playing while I'm signing the marriage register and since the registrars insist on no religious content the lyrics are really important. One song that I've loved for years is by Fyfe Dangerfield called Livewire. It's a beautiful acoustic track played o...

Re: Whose Stone is it Anyway?

For me (as a UK dweller) philosopher doesn’t mean anything mystical . It is just as likely to say ‘Plato’ or ‘Aristotle’ to me as it is to you. As far as I know, it doesn’t have that magical connotation in our wider culture either. As a kid, philosopher was just a grown up word that sounded weighty...

Re: Puff piece

Re: Pets

Hi Dylan.

You can buy a pet do the pet store in Hogsmeade. The shop is to the left of the fountain on the map but don't worry if the first time you click you get sent to the wrong store, just use the menu on the left to get to the correct shop.

Hope this helps.

Re: The Topic For Introductions!

Hi and welcome to HOL. You should still be able to join most classes and the professors will adjust the assignment due dates for you. I would recommend sending a message to the professors though so they know you want to join (many don't regularly check the sign ups at this point in the year). If you...

HOL Appreciation Month - GOLD SPIRIT AWARD

The start of a new school year seems to me the perfect time to reflect on what we all managed to achieve last year. During HOL Appreciation Month of August 2015 we asked you to set goals for what you wanted to achieve in terms of points, classes and anything else in the HOL world. Some of us set rea...
