We were accompanied on our trip by the famous Professer - who kindly allowed us to take his photo with Prof Richard Dawkins and Susan Blackmore:
Steve Steve had been passing by on an astrobiology field trip - but found time to make a pilgrimage to the 'Royal Society':
before joing us (Steve Elliot, Corkscrew and Dean Morrison) - along with 'Sir ToeJam' and Julie Stalhut' and a couple of Steve Steve's British cousins to sample some 'Old Speckled Hen'.
We bumped into a good friend of the lecturer 'Maryon' who was kind enough to make an introduction for us:
We were joined at the lecture by 'Greek Louis from Dorset' and his charming wife 'Jaz'. I'll refrain from commenting on the content of the lecture just yet, other than to say the theme was 'memes' - and Dr Susan Blackmore is a very entertaining and engaging speaker.
The beer sampling continued after the event - Sheppard Neame's 'Spitfire' being the most appreciated beverage.
Subjects ranged from Mathemetics (here we see Corkscrew trying to explain irrational numbers to Steve Elliot):
- through homeopathy to the martial arts:
A splendid time was had by all - and as we sadly said farewell to a slightly tipsy Prof Steve Steve - we agreed that this should be the first of many such adventures!
February the 12th is Darwin Day!
