Hey Mr E ! I'm actually a Ms E (from Australia). what a great blog you have- i will have to come back regularly now I've found it . An interesting and useful article- what a shame it is that we constantly have to justify our subject and our careers, because its no different over here. If you get time (it sounds like you are on holidays over there- lucky things) then come and visit ubersavvy and see what my Aussie boys do.
