    that there's a CERN news conference going on right now where they're outlining some of the results they've had in searching for the Higgs boson.

    She looked at me and said; "So?"

    I guess physics isn't her thing...

    Tom (... well... I thought it was exciting!)

    Someone was trying to explain what all this was about on the tv a couple of nights ago Tom.
    I must be honest though, they may as well have been talking Swahili, as it went straight over my head and I listened with a glazed expression on my face!

    We were watching the news this morning and they had a section relating to this, my 14 year old son was explaining bit's to me, he is studying triple science at school so it's all interesting for him.

    Don't feel alone Terry. I'm in the same boat. I think it's interesting and I'd like to really understand it but my math skills won't let me. I just have the feeling that it's something really exciting.

    I just don't know why.

    Get him to explain it to us too!

    Tom (... I think they said that Douglas Adams was right.)
