The Great Schlep

Oh. How I love Sarah Silverman. (there’s swearing in this so don’t turn up loud at work) The Great Schlep from The Great Schlep on Vimeo. “The Great Schlep aims to have Jewish grandchildren visit their grandparents in Florida, educate them about Obama, and therefore swing the crucial Florida vote in his favour.

Professor Brian Cox on Newsnight

There have been many times over the years when I’ve been extremely proud of my lovely husband. His appearance on Newsnight the other night is right at the bloody top of the list. Delight with me in the massive smackdown he gives to Sir David King who, believe it or not, is the President of […]

Atheist Reading List

I am an atheist. I wasn’t raised in a religious household – though I did my first Communion and went to a couple Sunday School classes because my grandparents insisted- but certainly never believed in what I picked up about Christianity through osmosis. Before I starting thinking about it properly, I believed there was ‘something […]
