Too Much of a Good Thing?

It is not an easy time to write about cricket. Given the recent tragedy involving young Phil Hughes (may he rest in peace), it feels a little wrong to be having a dig at it, but I’ve got a deadline and am bereft of any other good ideas, so here we go. Previous to that […]

The End Of The World As We Know It

It’s less than sixty days until the prophesised end of the world, so what you are you going to do? Are you going to spend it with your loved ones? Are you going to party, run wild, live fast and accept that your time has come? Are you going to rob a bank, unleash anarchy […]

Salmon And Tailor A Dinner Time Treat

What an awesome autumn: sunny days with crystal clear skies and the warm water is still lapping the shores of our favourite beaches as I write in early May. And for those of you able to set work and life’s demands aside for a day or a week, the fishing has been pretty good too. […]
