Unfortunate use of Joanna there Bill....

Jo was indeed a landscape Artichoke, she comes from down the road here and
lived in the student house at the Hillier arboretum with my son and half
dozen other girls when they were training 4-5 yrs ago. She was a lovely
girl. I can't tell you how wierd it's been seeing her all over the front
pages over Christmas.

Desperately sad, poor girl, and her folks...
We're not supposed to bury our chidren!

Following on from Simon's comments about it being expected for him to write
about stuff beyond his field of expertise, well yes I wonder about it as
well, hence I find myself getting more than a little annoyed that just about
every press report I've noticed regarding this unfortunate missing woman in

Almost without exception they've referred to her as an "Architect." However
if the Daily Mail is to be believed she isn't at all she's a Landscape
Architect. Incredibly the Mail's article is actually more credible with
details of her studying at Writtle (not noted for Architecture).

The point here is that it's blindingly obvious that a large section of the
public don't see much difference between two radically different
professions....... So no wonder Joe and Joanna expect you to comment on
other stuff. Perhaps, maybe.

All that aside obviously I hope she turns up safe and well; the Landscape
Artichoke who drew this to my attention said he felt no real link with the
story until he read she was a Landscape Architect, whereupon despite their
being at opposite ends of the country he felt some connection.
