Neat Patten

You remember that time when we were all worried about Lord Patten's ticker ?  He seems to have rallied. He attended a dinner at the French Embassy last week, as guest of Sylvie Bermann. Highlights of the six-course menu - lettuce jelly with bergamot caviar, semi-smoked zander fillet with fennel pearls, braised ox cheek with apple souffl√©, and Caribbean chocolate tart with liquorice.

In May, he's having another go at giving the commencement speech at Notre Dame, Indiana, which he pulled out of last year. Also in the 170th anniversary ceremony, picking up an honour, is New Orleans R&B singer Aaron Neville.
