    Dear Clare My wife and I started watching Scandal on Sky Living before Christmas and we're about to start Season 4. It's terrible. It really is. However, although I literally shout at the TV pretty much every episode because of the ludicrous stories, the awful acting and the glaringly...

  2. Holiday car rental

    I'm considering renting a motor in Gran Canaria in the summer but have never driven abroad so I am a little nervous at the thought . I'm hopeful that it will just feel natural driving on the right with a left hand drive vehicle. How have others found driving abroad for the first time ? ...

    Anyone running this? Just signed up this week, my current fitness equals zero. I trained semi-professionally from 1995-2014 until I retired. I literally have not trained since my last official training session and match in May 2014. I'm using the simple beginners marathon training schedule...

  5. Your Album of 2017

    Beast Epic by Iron & Wine just shading it from Gerry Cinnamon's Erratic Cinematic for me. Notable efforts also from The Charlatans, Ride, Mogwai, Daughter & Shed 7 too. It's been a decent year for music.

    Aye the best one would probably be one of those top rated detailing/valet jobs in the £100s if not £1,000s (so I qualified it :-). So what's the best drive through or hand job where the boys get all wet and soapy?
