Caron's Corkers - 7 January 2011

I haven't done one of these in ages, although I keep shoving stuff in a folder to link to later and never getting round to it so some of this stuff has been waiting for a while.

I liked Stephen Fry's letter to his 2 millionth Twitter follower.

On St Andrew's Day, the Burd reminded us of Scotland's other patron saint, St Margaret. How come the boy with the tenuous link to Scotland took priority over the girl who lived here?

More recently, the Burd turned her attention to the current baby swap plot in EastEnders. She was spot on and I agreed with every word. This isn't the first time the programme has tackled this horrendous subject. I remember that they did it much more sensitively with Sue and Ali Osman's second son died in 1985.

Another oldie - the Gorgeous Elephant v the Beardy Weirdy

Jennie says it all about a mother's love. 

Meemalee discovers that between the idea of good customer service, and the action, there is a fairly big shadow where The Fat Duck is concerned.

Gia Milinovich is a successful tv producer. In the sexist world in which we live, she finds that she plays second fiddle to her husband. Every woman in politics, science or business will find something to empathise with here. Not only that, she hilariously describes how she copes with the fact that women go mad for her other half, Professor Brian Cox.

And finally, Dan, Dan the Falchikov man finds that Norman Tebbit gives voters in Oldham East and Saddleworth a good reason to back Liberal Democrat Elwyn Watkins.
