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...)

Right, boys, it's time to put social and sexual stereotypes aside, because today we're going to be discussing housework. There's a saying that love starts when you sink into his arms, and ends with your arms in his sink. And after almost 50 years of 'women's lib' and at least four decades since the (more...)

Right, important questions first: what do we make of the new Doctor? (Not 'the new Doctor Who', you'll notice - I don't want to sound pedantic, but Doctor Who is the title of the series, not the character. It's a hanging question, a standing joke, but not a name.)

If there's one thing better than a wild night out, then it's a quiet night in.

Now, I'm not saying this was a tumbleweed-across-the-room moment exactly, but several people did look at me very blankly. Clearly you need to (more...)

Three weeks into the new year, and the children in the Simms household are still banging on about Christmas - and expecting me to remember some of the finer details. The other day my six year old daughter asked me for a quick run-down of Santa's reindeer. I quickly reeled off Dasher, Dancer and (more...)

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.

What was once fireworks night steadily progressed from fireworks week to fireworks (more...)

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. While I have some misgivings about under-tens dancing round their bedrooms belting out 'Like a Virgin' at the top of their tuneless voices, I have to say that four (more...)
