    Lady Sue - You really shouldn't talk about a dog and then mention nuts in the same post. It frightens the dog.

    Thanks everyone for Sam's welcome to the world. I like the crazy breeds. Sam is a border terrier...I know you all know that. We have been out in the garden all morning and half the afternoon taking out an old plum tree stump and root...I'm dogged. Sam found out how to bark recently and he barked at the stump while I hit it was a pick axe...I kept him at a safe distance don't worry. Guess what? We got it out hooray. Now I have room to put my new shed. Thats another day though.

    Thanks your all dead cool.

    Tell him his namesake lifts a paw (a front one of course!) to Sam in greeting - that reminds me I took an autumn photo with him in it, must see if I can get it out of the cameraphone....

    Re the ongoing MP expenses saga, most organisations pay expenses on the basis of 'reasonable','additional', 'expenditure', 'necessarily incurred'. Why should MPs be any different subject to a governance regime to monitor the application of these key requirements?

    Thanks gossipmistress. I was wearing pink ones until last week, but I think the ginger ones do suit me better. And if you had my problems your forehead would be wrinkled as well.

    Very fetching, Preston. Reminds of the football game I found myself watching by default at the weekend where one team was wearing pink. Needless to say, it wasn't a British team.

    Hi , well done Professor Nut.

    How refreshing to hear someone so honest. If the government want to make their policies up from how they feel about something, why employ a scientist who gives the evidence from years of research.

    There is a distinction as Professor Nut clearly stated, between moral debate and scientific evidence.

    Ironic as health professionals we are told to base our decisions on evidence based research. Are we going to have a list of who's evidence we can use? scary!!!!
