Today I'm channelling... Oprah

"I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes."
Oprah Winfrey, 59 today (correction: 60 today)


  1. She's sixty; she was in 1954.

  2. Thanks. Maths never my strong point.

  3. I try to avoid it; I usually put on what I think of as my thinking face when I'm in a group and everyone's trying to figure the tip or something. I think of other things. It's good that we all have different interests and gifts.

    I once interviewed a scientist who had great difficulty telling me about his research. (Usually people go on like there's no tomorrow.) At one point, he hung his head and said, "Words are not my friends." I loved that, and it still makes me smile.

  4. Ha! Numbers are not mine.
