I expect Birdie Sanders will grow up to be a powerful speaker who doesn't put up with greed or other such nonsense. Suppose we can clone him?

Anthony actually - but don't worry about the mistake .... Tony to my friends. I was just staring out the window at some of the local crows (interesting how what were traditionally rural birds adapt to urban life) - it's been a fascination since I was a child.

As a child I also had my first experiences of life and death when a baby sparrow fell out of the precarious nest its parents had built on a ledge outside our house. When I asked my Christian parents whether it would go to heaven, I got a wonderfully non-committal answer ....
