I should have realised something was amiss in the hotel when I sat on the bed and it scrunched (more...)

What is the one thing we do better probably than any other country in the world? I suppose building cars would be up there. And our pharmaceuticals and high tech industries are pretty good, too. When I look at some of the activities in plastics and new materials such as graphene, I can see the UK (more...)

For Valentine's day, I offered my good lady wife a free choice of romantic movies at the Cinema, fully expecting to be dragged off to see The Invisible Woman, or Endless Love, or About Last Night, or Winter's Tale. In the event, the redoubtable Mrs Simms opted for the remake of Robocop. I (more...)

Does anyone else remember the 1970s science fiction TV series Space 1999? It told the tale of Moonbase Alpha and how, after a nuclear explosion, the moon was flung out of orbit, with the Alphans sent careening off through the solar system and beyond.

It's not easy to comfort a twelve year old who's crying her (more...)

To my surprise, I've become a bit of a fan of the US Sherlock Holmes drama 'Elementary'. It took a little while to get used to the idea of it being set in modern day New York rather than old London Town, and that sidekick John Watson was now Joan Watson, but with its intelligent storylines, sharp (more...)

Work to exploit tidal and wave power as part of the renewable energy mix is gathering momentum, with the UK rapidly becoming a knowledge hub.

First came the news that last year's performance was better than first estimated. Then we heard that the economy grew by 0.3% in the first quarter of this year. And finally came the news we'd all been hoping for - second quarter growth as well. Still only a modest 0.6%, but that's the first time (more...)

As a Spurs supporter, I'm finding things increasingly tense as the summer goes on. (I use the term 'summer' in the loosest possible sense, referring merely to the time of year rather than to any noticeable pick up in the weather.) No new Tottenham signings yet, and mounting speculation over the (more...)

There was a time when the one thing a girl wanted to hear more than anything from her beau was those six little words: "I've made you a mix tape." That's when you knew he really cared, that it meant something and maybe it was going somewhere. I wonder if today's teenage girls, in the flush of first (more...)
