Few days late, but one of my favourites from years gone by - Sister Wendy Beckett, Carmelite hermit and art guru, aged 88.

"Wendy Beckett, better known as Sister Wendy, was a British religious sister, hermit, consecrated virgin and art historian who became well known internationally during the 1990s when she presented a series of BBC television documentaries on the history of art."

Ah, June Whitfield - actress who will be missed.

Mother of the Hubble: Tributes paid to Nasa scientist

Quote
Tributes are being paid to Dr Nancy Grace Roman, the first woman to hold an executive position at the US space agency Nasa.

Dr Roman was known as "Mother of the Hubble" for her work on the early stages of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Nasa said her most important legacy was the advancement of women in the sciences and the generations of young scientists she inspired.

She died in Maryland on Wednesday at the age of 93.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.
