I've noticed of late a stepping up of efforts to find habitable planets among the stars. But even if we found one in the nearest neighbouring star system, Alpha Centauri, then that's still over four light years away. Best case, with ion drive propulsion, we'd be looking at around 80,000 years to (more...)

I'm hiding it well, but you can take my word for it that I'm pretty short of breath after a last minute dash to the local newsagent to buy a lottery ticket. When the jackpot is £117 million, then throwing a couple of pounds at it and crossing your fingers is a no-brainer. After all, someone (more...)

Some years ago my parents gave me some royal event memorabilia that they'd bought for me at the time and then lovingly stored. So I now have the dubious honour of owning a set of Royal Jubilee coins, a Charles and Diana mug, a couple of plates and various commemorative stamps. Naturally the first (more...)

As someone whose formative years were built around classic sci-fi such as Logan's Run, I've always had a liking for electric cars. More recent works such as Gattaca and Firefly may have redefined the image of the electric vehicle as a conventional looking car but with an electric powerplant, but I (more...)

Yes, boys, we know you hate to shop, but it is one of a girl's greatest loves. Which is why some girlfriends and I all headed up to London for a bit of pre-Christmas window shopping, just for a few ideas to add to our lists for Santa. A leisurely stroll along Oxford Street eventually brought us to (more...)

Staying with some friends over the weekend, I was treated to the full-on X-Factor experience. I may be showing my age here, but I can't say it was entirely pleasurable, hearing a host of Elton John songs put to the sword by a succession of artists of questionable ability. In fact it was painful in (more...)

It's funny how your perceptions of a company can be quite different from the reality of that company, often because of the way companies market themselves. Over the years I can think of a couple of manufacturers I've had pegged as small-scale regional players, only to find on visiting those (more...)

The Simms family has just returned from its annual mini-holiday to the Isle of Wight, and most pleasurable it was, too. And when I say family, I'm talking about 16 of us, with ages ranging from 6 months to 85, all living for the week under one (thankfully large) rented roof. We've been doing this (more...)

Arriving home from a short holiday over the summer, I found a note had been slapped on my green-lidded dustbin, reminding me not to put plastic in with my garden waste. As far as I'm aware, it's not something I've ever done, but while I was away my mother (bless her) had volunteered to pop round and (more...)

The stone age did not end for a lack of stone, and the oil age will end long before the world runs out of oil. So said Sheikh Zaki Yamani, a Saudi Arabian who served as his country's oil minister 30-odd years ago. What he meant by that, I believe, was that you don't wait until a resource runs out (more...)
