Yes AD you're right about BODMAS and Every Good Boy Deserves Favour being the lines on the treble stave (also an album by The Moody Blues). The third one is as you suspected guitar strings in standard tuning. I learnt all the trig ones as a triangle - works for anything with three terms. Let's face it MR some of us have got strange ideas of fun Big grin

The following was drilled into me whilst attending KHVIII many years ago: Some Men Have Easy Occupations. Alternatively: Should Mad Hatters Eat (Fresh) Oysters?

We were also taught that method in our first year at Stoke Park, but the inspirational Mrs. Sayers helped us remember it by: Sir Oliver's Horse Came Ambling Home To Oliver's Aunt And 3 decades or so later I still found that useful when I wanted to work out how to make our folding staircase for the attic!

I'd never heard the ones for the great lakes Beesman but then I'm not sure that they were ever mentioned. Too much stuff about market gardening in the Vale of Evesham. Rob, I think everyone learned something different for sine, cosine and tangent. I was taught by my Dad, by listening him try to teach my brother. Those small pink hippos appealed to a 11 year old girl more than a 13 year old boy, before I knew anything about the maths.

Of course, hee hee! Nice one. Stuff should always be taught with a comedy song. I haven't listened to much of their stuff. I'm enjoying the oldies at the moment. Randall & Hopkirk on the TV and The full works of The Two Ronnies on DVD.
