During midwinter alongside Belgian chocolates from the Belgium research group, I distributed T-shirts as midwinter gifts to all the crew – thanking them for their time and effort in the research- which I had organised and had been provided through one of the other research groups (ISOSTRESS) based in Austria- bearing the motto of our winterover campaign – KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

I also ensured the T-shirts would be politically correct, in keeping with the difference between the colour of the protective clothing worn outside by French (blue) and Italians (red), the Italians are shown in red and the French in blue.  I am in yellow because that matches my yellow Crocs.

This motto has kept us safe, and has has shown us the path through the ‘dark-side’… may the force be with you too.
