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.

I've just booked a Christmas ride for the kids aboard the Santa Special at our local steam railway. It's become something of a December tradition, even though the oldest daughter is fully up to speed with the realities of seasonal giving.

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. Partly that is because we have the best natural resources - it is estimated that the UK_has around 50% of Europe's tidal energy resource, and our wave (more...)

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...)

When you live with three females - in my case, the redoubtable Mrs Simms and two effervescent daughters - then finding a little bit of space in the house that's your own can become increasingly difficult. Happily, the loft is my domain: youngest daughter can't get up the ladder, wife doesn't like (more...)
