Good news Bad news

Today we had confirmation that son-of-furtheron will graduate with a first class honours masters degree in Physics with space and planetary physics. Very big proud parent moment. All down to his consistent hard work and effort.   He so deserves this success.

Other good news I'm off to Silverstone with said son for the British Grand Prix weekend tomorrow morning which was my super 50th birthday present from the family. 

The bad/sad news was attending my old colleagues funeral. Good to see so many people there and to meet up with old colleagues all scattered to the four winds now but sad it was that occasion to bring us all together. There was one face I didn't expect to see there, a colleague from my current job. He had also worked with the deceased some years ago. It is a small world and your time on it is short and unpredictable so make everyday count.


  1. I'm sorry to hear of the passing but the news of your son's success and your forthcoming trip will go a long ways to help sooth those blues. Put everything on a scale and you know which way it'll tip.

  2. So sorry to hear about your loss. It just sucks. There are no other words.

    But a big congrats to son-of-furtherton!!!! I can barely pronounce his major and he's graduating with honors! Whoa.

    You puff out that daddy chest and preen a little - you and wife of furtherton definitely deserve it.


  3. Congrats on your son and I hope you have a blast at the Grand Prix!

  4. Circle of life stuff there, eh Graham? Congrats on the super bright lad there...shooting for the stars,yes? :) Just like his dad. Aiming high. Sorry to hear about your friend. :(


  5. Huge congratulations to Son-of-Furtheron!

  6. Congratsssssss to your son, you must be soooo proud :).
    I am sorry for your friend, we've also lost a few friends this years...::(

  7. Many congratulations to your son, Furtheron! It's a testament to you too. Job well done, sir!

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend.

  8. Well done that man! They don't hand out Firsts in Physics like smarties.

    And your last sentence--yes, yes, yes.

  9. Congratulations to SoFO on such high honours! Very well done indeed. And so sorry for the loss of your colleague - one of the worst parts of growing up is saying goodbye to friends...
