    Comment of the week:

    From Emily Bishop, looking on the bright side of being stuck in London:

    My Mum and I have both been stuck in London since Thursday (I live here and was trying to get to New York for a conference, she was visiting and is trying to get home to France). We've had our stressful moments and I've been on hold with Expedia since FOREVER, but we got to watch The Debate which we would have missed otherwise, and took the opportunity on Saturday for a lovely night out at the new/Old Brewery in Greenwich - it was fabulous. If life hands you lemons... drink locally independently brewed coffee ale ;)

    Also? I hadn't actually finished my presentation for that conference...

    Atta girl, Emily!
