I think I might get me a brian Cox mug.

I heard him described on Radio 4 recently as "the housewives favorite scientist". Not quite sure what they were getting at, but I doubt it was complimentary.

I thought the term "housewife" died out in the 50s.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Just watched a live lecture he has given in Manchester Uni. Probably mainly school kids, but very interesting and entertaining.

Do you still have a link for that, Alan.

There's quite a lot of gentle fun-poking you tube clips out there. :D

*embarrassed*

by "live" I thought you meant live on the internet.

What a dummy.

Didn't they try "domestic manager", or something like that, at one time?

In the US don't they use the term "homemaker"? (that gem of information was gleaned from my watching Judge Judy. My guilty secret)

Yippee!!! I am going to Glastonbury and I was GUTTED because I am missing my all-time-number-one-hero David Attenborough, who is picking up a gong (sorry, I mean honorary degree) at St Andrews in the same week. He is also doing a public lecture as part of the 600th Anniversary celebrations when he is here.

This (kind of) makes up for it a bit.....

Hey, enjoy Glastonbury, Beki! My son Rob is going with Kassidy, the band he is tour managing, but not looking forward to it. He's just back from a festival at Nyon on Lake Geneva and that seemed to be rather good as someone took them sailing on the lake. This weekend he's at The Insider which is near me and evidently really good. It includes local celebrity Charlie McKerron (of Capercaillie) and also Michael Marra.

I must be out of the picture, Lewist, about the only things that I understood there were the place names!
