Yeah they probably pointed out that she worked as a research chemist in the commercial field, but I suspect that being honoured on a banknote means you've got to have been involved in some ground-breaking endeavour or, in this case, to have been a female achieving recognition for such in a 'male dominated' world.
Reckon the fave is the lady who was working towards the structure of DNA at the same time as Watson & Crick, but I'm ****ed if I can remember her name. Hence the need for recognition!

As for calling Sir Bobby a 'pleb', hanging's too good.

We have this with HP. I know people that change their under crackers less than HP chance Account managers.
A prime example, We had a meeting on a Friday with a new account manager. flew down from Scotland just to meet us. We rang his number the following Wednesday, & he had moved to cover other customers!
Luckily, we don't get the hard sell, as we have a gold partner reseller in between that protect us from that nonsense.

How ironic that if she did end up on a £50 note, the only people likely to see her on it, would be those who voted for her or those who would have voted for her..
But, no, I agree with sendô, she'll never be on our money. Far too divisive.

On the slow train home. I’ve had 9 pints. No loo on this train.

Ideas?

Hmm, desperation stakes.
Any windows you can open & flop the old boy out?
Have you got any bags without holes in?
Definitely loosen any tight waistband.
Under no circumstances, think about dripping taps, waterfalls or tsunamis...

Kilkenny Castle, Canning Town. 1986. Waiting for train from Custom House to Hackney Wick (or Central?). Pint - missed train - pint- missed train - pint - missed train- pint and finally train. It kind of went on. Every week. Occured to me later that I used to play gigs in that pub only 3 years before. Pint-missed train-pint-missed train...

Drove to our new Doctors' Surgery yesterday to deliver some forms so that we could order prescriptions online and our son's application to register with them - they rejected my wife's online paperwork even though I'd taken her passport saying she had to deliver it in person , same went for my boy .

I then went to the Post Office to withdraw some money from my savings' account only for the card to be retained - the same thing had happened a couple of weeks' ago as I had taken an old card by mistake , this time I was sure I'd taken the new one - by now I was bloody fuming !

I had to go home to register my complaint but the computer which answered the phone told me the line was busy ! :)

Grrrrrrr !

The common cold. I swear I've popped more pills over the weekend than Pete Doherty and I still feel terrible.
