Adrian HorridgeI am a retired professor still working on bee vision and general history of traditional canoes and sailing boats of the Pacific region. Updated 2018-04-08
The latest news is that my right hip and right knee have now settled down with new joints, that feel heavy when swimming.
I expect to be in St. John's College, Cambridge on Sunday 1 July 2018. If anybody hopes to see me alive and talking, send me an email.
It's been a hot, long summer and the rose garden is very dry. There will probably be a Spring Garden Party about the first week of November 2018, when the roses are in full bloom.
