What's In? [Deaky-topics in this week]
- Deaky Amp...again
About the Deaky Amp (its pix were put on last week's "Deaky Weekly"), one question arose: What is the red-square-thing on that body? An battery of 9V? If so, the Deaky Amp is very small! (But very effective, I guess)
- Educational background
We don't know much about educational system in England because it's a bit different from Japanese system. (For example, intermediate educational institutions are divided into several categories in the UK, but there's only one system in Japan.) And reading about John's background, we're sometimes confused because another book writes another description. My guess is as follows ;
(until he enrolled Chelsea College, London)
- 5 - 9 year old : Lindon Junior School, Evington.
- 9 - 11 : Langmoor Junior School, Oadby (he moved)
- 11 - 15 : Gartree High Scool
- 15 - 18 : Beachamp Grammar School
Is that right? Well, you may wonder why his background is so important...but I want to know everything about him, after all!
- Visited John's house!
I heard a very intersting story from 'Laura-Taylor':
"About two years ago, my friend who lived in the UK told me that she had a friend who had visited Mr. Deacon's house in Wimbledon seven or eight years ago. Because her friend's boy-friend was son of a Sax player who played with George Micheal and was also John's friend, so they were able to visit his house. She said the house was very gorgeous, while John himself was very very ordinary man. Mrs. Deacon seemed a bit unfriendly at that time, though."
What an envious story! I've never thought that his house stands in Wimbledon. About the impoliteness of Mrs.Deacon...well, seven or eight years ago she was really consumed with children's care (Luke and Cameron were still babies!) so I think she was very tired.
Thank you for reading! See you next week!
