Not enough time today for detailed posts as I've still mince pies to make while I worry about the pea and ham soup that's turned out far too salty, even though I soaked the ham shank, so here is a small selection of what caught my eye in the past few days.
Johnny Ball, the man who introduced science to generations of youngsters, disagrees with the climate change doom-mongers.
David Bellamy celebrates the failure of Copenhagen.
The mystery of Tony Blair's money solved.
