Back from London and the ERS Council Meeting was definitely a 'game of two halves' ...
... morning session was fairly enjoyable, with relatively good-natured debate about the merits (or not!) of AV as opposed to FPTP - I know, arcane stuff, but important nevertheless ;-)
... afternoon session was not enjoyable, with another interminable discussion about details of the Society's "Articles of Association" - honestly, it makes 'AV versus FPTP' seem of earth-shattering importance by comparison. Truly dull :-(
Anyhow, London was looking splendid on Saturday - sun shone all day and it felt more like 4,000, than 400, miles away given the weather upon my return to Edinburgh last night!
