    Last bank holiday monday saw racing at the Castle Combe circuit, where we watched classic Ferrari’s and Porsche’s hurtle around the track amidst a heady concoction of coffee, doughnuts and premium gasoline. We were there to support a driver, who won his class in the Sports and GT racing. But...

    Here’s a recipe you won’t see Jamie Oliver knocking up on the back of his moped…muscle rub.

    Nerves… don’t you just love them. Without them I’m sure the world would be a pretty grey state without sensation, but there’s always a ying for every yang. When being punctured with needles, like earlier today, sometimes your body’s nerve endings, wake up and start shouting at the world, like...

    I’m borrowing (not quite stealing…) the thunder of a post on the excellent FlixelPix website. A feature photo-essay on the truly hand-made process of creating an acoustic guitar, by Irish luthiers, Avalon Guitars. The photo here is of Ernie, one of Avalon’s expert luthiers, taken by FlixelPix on a Fuji...

    I suspect the boffins at Sony have been watching too many Bond films, whilst locked away in their bat caves. The new QX10 and QX100 are units to strap down to the front of your sleek new smartphone to take a better quality picture. See the story here
