A few links
« on: April 06, 2004, 02:29:03 »
Some may be interested in these plant related stories I have heard recently: www.npr.org/features/feature.php?wfId=1805195
http://www.loe.org/ETS/organizations.php3?action=printContentItem&orgid=33&typeID=18&itemID=197- ancient biowarfare, toxin dangers and the top banana
http://www.npr.org/features/feature.php?wfId=1591872 (it's a coincidence, no self promotion here!)

It's not often I think seriously about repairing the bust soundcard on my computer!  Better have a go tonight - thanks for those, John.

All best, Gavin

Ah. With your recent post about the fate of your TV and Radio 4 I was thinking of you specifically when I posted that.
I thought Phil Cooper might be interested in the potato piece too.
