Oh to be able to go back to university and do a doctorate in ecology!

I'd be fascinated to go back to university and redo my first degree in ecology, to see how much the thinking has changed. One of my lecturers, David Bellamy, didn't believe human activities were contributing to climate change.....but that was a wee while ago!

Folks we're never too old...... just look at this chap https://www.theguardian.com/education/2021/jul/16/hastings-uk-oldest-new-graduate-archie-white-east-sussex-college  and a friend of mine has just started an environmental degree withe the Open University at 74 and intends to graduate when he's 80.
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.

Better sooner rather than later or we'll never stand the pace of the field trips, let alone Freshers' Week!
