I love your young daughter's backbone, Phaidra! Nothing like telling an interviewing panel of, I assume, medics, how evolution works and affects our lives!
We went to the last performance of our local church's Christmas pantomime earlier, which was full of bright, spirited and talented young people. They acted, cracked jokes and sang delightfully. Thoroughly enjoyable, despite the fact that the season of While Shepherds Watched their Flocks could've been considered over. In that Hall, it wasn't!
