I saw a documentary once about how they grow bananas and the pesticides they use. It was really very frightening. Haven't bought a banana that wasn't organic since. Exactly what are we prepared to sacrifice for aesthetic perfection and 'throw away' prices in our food?

hey Jon, we could combine our modules for a post grad qualification - your 'A wider view of wildly overcomplicated and unnecessarily duplicitous chemical terminology' and my 'Basic Communication (with subsidiary course on spelling)' to offer a module about a subject that you can tell people that you...

You are deep MKG, very deep.

Hmm, you have me stumped - tyler??? She's an Asian, half burmese, half I forget what else. She did win a couple of rosettes when she was a kitten but then she stopped growing and is now too small to show (I dabbled with showing but it isn't really my scene) - just 3Kg, a little dot really.

I also got the chance to do a PhD part time but couldn't face the thought of seven years worth of study, coupled with seven years of setting up the same practical classes again and again and again. Good times though ...

When I had my stint in the labs and also afterwards when I was selling to them, it never failed to amaze me how one lab could be really struggling to get to grips with a t...
