I read another article by Oliver James over the weekend...

Oliver James wrote Affluenza - How to be successsful and stay sane. The article I read was about the old chestnut nurture versus nature and Oliver argues that it's not really a bit of both. The research is very clear that it is mostly nuture and that many aspects of our make-up have no heritability at all. More good news for those of us who believe that we can change the world for the better!

Sorry I have not visited for a while. I was momentarily alarmed when observing your smiling visage at the top of the blog as you appeared to have changed your name to John Cleese.
My mistake.

I am pleased you went to London and saw Les Miserables. I myself have not been, but I did once see Les Dawson at Batley Variety Club.
It was a smashing evening.

I have not come across Oliver James, although you are right about nurture being more important.
I myself prefer Jamie Oliver, particularly his recipe for a manly steak sandwich.

It's good to see that you are getting in touch with your feminine side through cookery and Jamie Oliver. You need to spend time exploring the arts and realise how much it would nurture youir emotional development and well-being.
