Close readers of the comments on my post My Guilt Lifts...He's Back! will have been wondering what happened to Bill Oddie (a fat bearded television birdist). He appeared in a list of celebrities in the epic Jeffrey Archer post Snowdon one night, but had vanished by the next morning. I put the question to Jeff via a comment, cunningly concealing my identity by deploying the entirely accurate pseudonym An Admirer. Now, to my delight, Jeffrey has responded - 'an admirer - I'm afraid I was thinking of a different night and a different event that week when I'd seen Bill.' Hang on, hang on. The gist of the Snowdon post was how inept some journalists had been in not spotting how many celebs there had been at this jolly. But here's Jeff mixing up his events. Never mind. Homer has been known to nod and Jeff is very busy.
