    I’m quite impressed by Howard’s breeding program that has produced dates that not only speak, but even manage the language of honour and heroes. :-p

    Howard William is coming to Uppsala!? First I have heard of it – but then, that is not unknown to happen here, that phd-students are the last to hear about anything.
    I’ll grab someone by the ear and demand a posting on our homepage.

    sa, they just finalised the speaking date for Uppsala last week.

    Kai, argle. “Why did the banana go out with the prune?” “Because he couldn’t find a date.”

    LOL, when I reads the headline I thought: why is Howard’s love life any of my beeswax, whether or not his dates speak Swedish? 😉
