    I don't suppose you watched Friday Night Dinner? With two teenage boys in the house it is one of the programmes we have watched a lot of in the past.

    With the wonderful Paul Ritter as the dad who recently sadly died.

    The sons constantly Make fun of his way of calling all women, females.

    I am not afraid of the word woman, I know you are all woman and you are certainly woman enough for me.

    I don't watch much TV but spend my time reading improving books!

    Although they don't seem very effective.

    You get a like! I fully agree with your point, having spent 34 years being reeducated by my partner. Still it's better than girls!

    Just got round to reading the interview with Hannah Horsburgh in the latest fellrunner. I was amused by the question of whether her middle name is Hyacinth - quality journalism.

    Also refreshing to see her unapologetic stance on drinking. For those who've not read it - she doesn't.

    Yes. The whole construction was a delight, and quite intriguing.

    If it was good enough for the navvies, it should be good enough for anyone, eight pints a day they were on.

    The use of Open recognises the performances of those Ladies/Females/Women like Victoria, Hannah or Jasmin whose times figure in the first ten (see Blencathra on Page 138 and Wasdale on Page 139).

    But what about those men who who would have made the top 10 were it not for the females being included in the open category. For once I agree with Graham just have Male and Female.

    Whilst I agree to some extent, we need to establish a level playing field for both sexes and the open category at least does that surely?

    But then surely you don't need a women's category.
