In my school days, I discovered something of talent for tennis. As a somewhat gawky teenager I didn't have the stature, musculature or grip strength for the powerful, wristy topspin shots that characterise the modern game, but I could hit the ball hard and flat from the right flank, and had a solid (more...)

At the risk of starting to sound like a grumpy old man, this is not my favourite time of the year. The fun and festivity that used to surround Halloween and Guy Fawkes night has turned into a right flipping nuisance. What was once fireworks night steadily progressed from fireworks week to fireworks (more...)

There's something inherently pleasing about green technology and sustainable manufacturing - a warm and cuddly feeling that comes from knowing that not only are you doing the environmentally responsible thing, but also that you're the best in the world at it.

This month in the Simms household, the children - aged 5 and 8 - have been celebrating the career of pop icon Madonna as she turns 50.

The modern footballer is, as we all know, a mass of clichés, from his 'sick as a parrot' and his 'game of two halves' to his 'all credit to the opposition' and 'I'm just pleased for the team'. And you can always rely on an 'at the end of the day.' You're guaranteed to get at least one of (more...)

Last night I watched a programme on TV which promised to take me inside the crocodile.

Note to self: must think before speaking. This was a little aide memoire I jotted down during a recent meeting of your hard working Industrial Technology team, whilst the others in the group were rolling around the floor laughing. I like to promote myself as an ideas man. What this high brow concept (more...)

Being something of a Red Dwarf fan (I'm thinking of the TV series, here, although I do find astronomy fascinating), I tend to lose track of what's a real quote and what has been entirely made up to entertain a science fiction loving demographic.
