May you all have a wonderfully decadent Christmas and a happy and healthy 2010. Thank you all for following my blog. I'm going to attend Christmas Eve carol services at midnight here in Oxford at New College, which has an impeccable, world-renowned choir. So if you're in town, join us at 11:30pm. I have been invited to dinner by my lovely friend Monika who will be cooking up a feast, roasted pork with winter vegetables, a butternut squash soup with sage, and some other treats......I cannot wait.
This song is dedicated to all those I care about and miss a whole lot. Had a lovely curry last night with the housemates. And a week ago a glorious lab dinner. An international feast, including a Gambian specialty of lamb in a peanut sauce called domoda (to die for).
The epidemiologist in me has comment on the defeat of the public option today. For more, please check this article at The Huffington Post.
I always tell my European friends America has the best public health schools in the world, and the irony is the health of the American public is secondary to political and corporate interests. What happened today saddens me greatly. C'est la vie. God bless the NHS, that's all I have to say.
