Have they plasticised Steve as well?

He looks suitable unwell in that shot!
Certainly the pose is "restful"

:smile: Very wity sweetheart

I had an interesting funding meet tonight to discuss Fong-related issues (linked in to the health and safety implications of beach burial of cetaceans). I am glad Fong is still with me, but damage to him might be a longer-term money spinner and enable us to conduct additional funded research (to identify actual as opposed to perceived risks associated with whale burial in beaches, specifically to determine pathogen persistence post burial in same).

Long live Fong!

Have you charmed up a way to do the studies you need for the free use of equipment (without law suit or jail time) or are you conjuring other funding?

Anyone who knows me D would never use a word like 'charm.' I wish I could charm someone .... wave a magic wand and have things as I would like them to be. A good Dictator I think I would be, though sadly dictating is not 21st century when democracy rules. Democracy can be rather over-rated! A socialist at heart I think I am. Gawd I am confused!

I am an anarchist who knows that anarchy (like socialism) does not work with the masses but wishes it were otherwise.
