Thom Gorst's Graduation on 30th November

A very proud day - Thom Gorst, my first ever PhD student, graduated at Glasgow University. I was absolutely thrilled - and, even moreso as my friend and co-author Professor Donald E. Meek gained the title Doctor of Letters on account of his substantial and impressive lifetime's research work. Notwithstanding the rain, it was a very happy day.

To The Rogano for luncheon:

 The interior is magnificent; it dates from 1936 and is a swish and very intact oasis of Art Deco:


 My starter - Mmmmmm!

It was a good luncheon.
