Jude, you are going to need a time machine I suspect as the invitation was issued 10 years ago. I wonder how many of the often witty or erudite posters from 2004 still revisit this site?

Warm weather in Essex for December! Its only 7 degrees today here in Liverpool. I know first Fahrenheit and then Celcius measures of temperature weren't developed until the 18th century, but as Pepys was British and we have been employing Celsius/centigrade for a number of decades here I'd find degree C preferable to degree F (or at least clarity about the scale being used).
