Colour co-ordinated

My new-ish car. Five weeks old.

A jeans blue, green-ish car. The Honda Civic Hybrid.

Does it save the planet? Probably not.

But if you have to drive something, you could do worse.

Lost for words



Have I missed the arrival of a new word in the language?

I am here!


Life goes on, gainfully employed and all.

It is an interesting job, getting some order into a lab. But the people above me are supportive and the people below are appreciative so it is almost as good as it gets. That's not to say taht there aren't problems but we are getting there.

I have to do a telephone conference later in the week with our French masters regarding the way forward for chemistry, which should be interesting. Much prefer to deliver it in person but a week in Paris would wreck the budget, I fear.

In the mean time:

1. Simon turned 21 and duly partied to celebrate the event. Now there are no 'children' at home. Ha!

2. The garden is in winter slumber but the bulbs are sneaking up. Spring is just a month away.

A sobering thought


I loved the space race. For all the reasons young boys love adventure. It was a great quest, brilliantly achieved.

It seems like only last week that I walk home from high school to watch the landing on TV.

WWII, on the other hand, seems long long ago.

Yet I was born closer to WWII than my boys were born to the moon landing.

I wonder how they view it?
