As a self-confessed Janeite, I could hardly let a recent trip to the beautiful and historic city of Bath pass without visiting the Jane Austen Centre, housed in a building just off Queen's Square. The building itself is not the actual establishment where the Austen family rented rooms: that (more...)

I couldn't let this moment pass without celebrating the invention and mourning the demise of the sugar cube, and highlighting its largely unrecognised legacy within the field of engineering. The sugar cube was invented in 1841 by Swiss-born Czech entrepreneur Jakub Rad at the sugar refinery in (more...)

The other day I was sat in a queue at the Dartford river crossing, about two miles from the toll booths, wondering if I was ever going to reach my destination. It had to be a pretty terrible accident to have caused such a delay, I thought. Or perhaps some major repair on one of the tunnels. Or maybe (more...)

I got into a debate this week about the most important car ever designed. Not necessarily the greatest, and certainly not the fastest or the most beautiful or the most expensive or the most iconic, but rather the car that most fundamentally changed the direction of the automotive industry, along (more...)

An advert on TV caught my attention this week, promoting a hybrid family car that could give you up to 75mpg. It's probably grossly unfair of me, but I found that figure vaguely disappointing. A good, small-engined petrol car will get you up into the 50s, and surely a decent diesel will return 60mpg (more...)

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...)
