What a ghastly photo !!

There was a Celt queen named Boud'ca
Whose armour did never quite suit her
The heat of her body
Left her feeling quite soggy
A sense not unknown to Madonna.




The end
(It's all I can manage this week due to an unusual British heatwave !!)

A chic young dame of New York
In the rain she loved to walk
Only the China-man knew
That one spark from her shoe
Would blow the damp dame to chalk

An official apology

I am afraid it is Wimbledon week and I have little time to think about Louis Pasteur. Anyway, he is French, and it is considered polite in English society just to ignore the French (the men anyway...), as they love to attract attention.

So I am afraid I have not had any time to look for photos this week, but please..........do watch this Youtube, and you may hopefully feel extremely educated about this simple French discovery....
