Got tickets to see Richard Dawkins live! I always laugh when I hear the word 'live' attached to someone speaking. I'd be rather bored watching some dead guy talk and how would he ever manage to hold a pen to autograph things?

I've seen Dawkins speak a couple of times this year. What's his..um 'live show' about? I'm getting visions of him on the stage at the Apollo, telling jokes about amoeba.

I'd love to see him at the Apollo except that would require 8hrs and 14 min more time than I've got handy. :D This is the venue for the 'Meet and Greet' with Dawkins. I have no idea what he'll be talking about specifically but I imagine it has to do with his newest book.

Sigh........The numbers have gone all to shite again!
I posted.
997,244
Fia posted (tongue in cheek I'm sure) 5,769.
then reposted my number (997,244)
Nick couldn't be bothered to post any number at all! Sheesh!

If we assign 997,241 to Nick, then the next number is.

Hi all! :)

I'm just checking in after a week of hospitals and things to let folks know I am ok though I could be better. It's nothing life threatening.

I just googled the Westonbirt Arboretum Felicia, 600 acres...Wow, impressive. I found this pic on their site.
My good friend and sometimes employer has this growing in her garden,
CHILEAN FIRE BUSH The folk on the "Beechwood garden" radio program told her it was not possible to grow this large shrub (tree) in Shetland. It is spectacular in late May early June.

Nothing like visiting Eastern Europe to make you glad you are living in the UK.
Geez! It's depressing.
