    Now I wouldn't like anyone to think that I have any sort of negative feelings towards one of last century's most important public servants. But....

    I do clearly recall madMaggie's scientific career (before she went on to qualify as a barrister and so do a real job, that is.)

    She worked for Lyons.

    Lyons Ice Cream, that is. (Professor Wiki's blog will tell you all about it if you don't remember.)

    Her specific job?

    To add more air to the ice-cream mix before it left the factory.

    Capitalism? You gotta love it.........

    Not only that, she found a way to convince that more air and less ice cream was good.

    We should bring out a 9 bob note and put her on that.
