Great Is an Anagram of Which Woman’s Name?

So, Greta moves on. She has been with us as a Science Writing Fellow for the last 6 months during which time she has sprinkled happiness and joy, like fairy dust, on us all.


Great is on the extreme right.

She has gone over the Okinawan border to spread her conquests further. In fact she got the plum job as Communications person at the zinging new, incredibly cool, Crick Institute in London:

Robert Burns wrote a poem about her in 1792, which shows what an amazing poet he was.

O saw ye bonie Greta,
As she gaed o’er the Border?
She’s gane, like Alexander,
To spread her conquests farther.

To see her is to love her,
And love but her for ever;
For Nature made her what she is,
And never made anither!

Thou art a queen, fair Greta,
Thy subjects, we before thee;
Thou art divine, fair Greta,
The hearts o’ men adore thee.

The deil he could na scaith thee,
Or aught that wad belang thee;
He’d look into thy bonie face,
And say-“I canna wrang thee!”

The Powers aboon will tent thee,
Misfortune sha’na steer thee;
Thou’rt like themselves sae lovely,
That ill they’ll ne’er let near thee.

Return again, fair Greta,
Return to Okinawa!
That we may brag we hae a lass
There’s nane again sae bonie.

Anyway we had a greta party.


Tomomi with wonderful Iranian woman, whose name I have forgotten, slice it.


Yoko makes Takoyaki


Beautiful women

We eat incredibly well and throb to the wins -every -time rhythm of Strip the Willow and Screaming Pyramids


Good times.


Nearly there



Thanks Greta.
