Funny old world . . . . . . 

On the radio, there is a guy who was a year below me at school, who according to Cameron  has a formidable reputation in the field of defence and disarmament.. (and) led the challenge to dangerous unilateralism in the Eighties. Hmm. And then there was Rowan Williams, another ‘old boy’ from my school, who was living in Lambeth Palace and intervening in World politics!

Me ? I had a great night on Thursday playing with some well funky musicians….. and looking forward to more of it. Funny old world.

Could do better . . .

I loved this story. This guy is getting 2.6 million pounds, whilst being actually sacked. His logic is extraordinary.

“There are 100 things commentators say I got wrong  but hopefully I got 101 things right ” does this mean a man who does this job only has to be slightly better than pure chance tobe considered  successful?  welldone

As big as what?!

The announcement of Apple’s record quarterly figures this week has brought about a large number pf comparisons with size of small countries – bigger than Greece, nearly as big as Denmark and, quaintly, 3 times the value of Lithuania. My vote goes for a different comparison where a problem caused by a sewage blockage of 6000 tons was clarified by comparison to 2000 hippos. . .
