Birthdays and the new tax year

April 5th: the new (UK) tax year. But I’m on PAYE (pay as you earn), and rarely make any other income (examining the odd PhD thesis? not exactly going to make anyone rich!). But, more importantly, it’s the birthday of my brother’s twin boys. Not they they’re boys any more! Graham’s a Mathematician in Rio (just organising a new journal, Geometry and Topology), and Alistair’s an environmental scientist in Moscow, Idaho. What present might be appropriate for very grown-up nephews? Tricky! So I’ll just wish them both “Happy Birthday: Many Happy Returns!” on this blog.
