Clever of the team launching Virgin Money to pick 40 years of Virgin history as a way of showing what people will get with our new bank.
My son and I stayed with Ted Turner on his estate in Florida earlier this week. An Estate that took me back to the era of Gone with the Wind. Quite beautiful. With gorgeous Oak Tress covered with drooping moss. Riding on horseback we were speaking about the importance of reputation and honour and how certain business leaders had destroyed their reputations by being too greedy. Ted has one of the quickest minds of anyone I know.
He said one of the best lines on honour was written by Shakespeare
I am very honoured to be invited to lunch with Stephen Hawking on Sunday to celebrate his 70th birthday.
It should be a fascinating day with Britain's greatest living scientist and I'll do my best to share some of the highlights with you.

As a result the people have flourished with great education and health services. May all other countries learn from this, and from what Cuba did, and send doctors out into the world – not bombs.
Don’t know if anyone else in the UK has spotted this on during ad breaks on TV yet? Very mysterious, will try and find out more…
Samoa and Tokelau have changed their time zone by 24 hours to fit in with their principal trading partners.
Britain should change it's time zone by one hour to be on the same time zone as the rest of Europe. There would be numerous benefits. Little downside.

Took a photo of the moon above Necker to help decide where to put the Virgin Galactic hotel!
