My daughter came home from school with a maths joke. Three mighty armies gathered ready to do battle; one from the south and two from the north. On the night before the upcoming battle, the soldiers of each army drank themselves into a slumber. Each army had a squire carrying its banner. In the (more...)

Just when we’d all breathed a collective sigh of relief that Brexit was finally behind us and we could get on with the day jobs, the posturing has started up again. First battleground for the trade negotiations, it seems, will be fishing, with Europe insisting that it must have access to (more...)

Suffering of late with a rather nasty cough, Mrs Simms was keen to check that she wasn’t keeping me awake through the night. “It did at first,” I said, munching through my breakfast. “But I soon got used to it, like the way you do with a particularly loud clock.” The (more...)

This has been a month of disappointments in a televisual sense, as I caught up with three remakes from my viewing youth, only to discover that time and technology alone are no guarantee of improvement over the original. First example was Magnum PI, the reboot of which I discovered quite by accident (more...)

MakeUK, the rebranded EEF and vocal supporter of the UK’s manufacturing sector, has published a new fact card providing details of the industry’s health – and very interesting reading it makes, too. Produced in association with Santander Corporate and Commercial, it highlights a (more...)

Every February, Tonbridge hosts the UK’s largest second-hand and vintage hi-fi event, AudioJumble, which I attend religiously each year. Not to buy, necessarily, but often merely to peruse a veritable museum of classic audio equipment. In fact, it’s even better than a museum because at (more...)
