  • Blog Post: In praise of Boris

    I whole-heartedly congratulate London Mayor Boris Johnson on his latest inflammatory comments . In a letter to Chancellor George Osborne, the Conservative Mayor of London, has attacked the Government over its cuts to solar subsidies ; warning that halving the “feed-in tariff” would “slowly...
  • Blog Post: Survival and Boris's big opportunity

    The weird weather's still around but nature's soldiering on and is alight with action. The lawn I laid earlier this year is now thriving and has brought in a much wider range of birds to my garden. I've more thrushes, a wren, more finches and even a new blackbird challenging the resident...
  • Blog Post: Watery wonders

    Two new reports have shed new light on life on earth. The first claims to have found the world's oldest living organism and the second writes off that old phrase... 'there are plenty more fish in the sea'. The Mediteranean Sea is home to a organism that DNA testing dates as being 200,000...

If you ever get the chance to experience this level of bliss, then treasure it. There's something primal about the wide...
  • Blog Post: A blackbird sang in a Bloomsbury square

    Cold, hard rain hit my face on the cycle ride in to work this morning, but the clear and loud song of a blackbird from a garden square in Bloomsbury is my over-riding memory of the commute. It's clarity and volume stood out from the rumble of London, adding a touch of magic to the usual soundtrack...
  • Blog Post: Budget watch

    How was it for you? I gave up smoking years ago but even I wince at the notion of £7.50 for a pack of twenty. £5 for your average bottle of wine may help me drink less and I rarely buy beer in London pubs 'cause I can't then afford the bus fare home. On the plus side for London...
