Talk to the animals

There's a startling article in today's New York Times about research to give a human speech gene to mice!

After reading the piece, all I could think about was Dr. Dolittle!

As if I don't have a hard enough time getting the kids to zip it and the hubby to listen!

Oh I sooo loved Rex Harrison...and of course his version of Doctor DoLittle was so much better than the more modern version with Eddie Murphy. I also loved loved loved loved him in My Fair Lady. Loved, I mean LOVE. I still watch those when I catch them. (If I am permitted between sporting events.)

I was (am) such a sucker for English and Scottish accents!

M-I - I know what you mean. I loved Rex, too, and then there was "Camelot"!
