  • About
A principle which I have endeavoured to assert in most aspects of Davidson family life is the ‘Fallacy of the Single Right Choice’. The enunciation of the principle has stilled many a vain debate, based on the faulty premise that there must always be one, and only one, ‘best’ way of performing some activity like dressing for a party, or cooking a fish. A useful feature of fish is that most kinds can be cooked in most ways. In the catalogue entries for the various species, I have made suggestions about how to treat them, but these are not meant to rule out other methods.
