The Mediterrenean diet

No  disrespect to Daffers and her ilk that spend significant amount of their waking hours in restaurants but often you cannot beat a simple meal at home. Yesterday after a stroll down the Promenade we partook of asparagus, prawns, ham and salad all fresh from the market that day on the terrace and [...]

A la Colthard/ Colombe d’Or

I make no apologies for reviewing again this restaurant which I visited with a friend yesterday. What makes it so special? Firstly, it is the setting in St Paul de Vence, a hillside town, in an old inn. Although the dining room houses the exceptional art collection on a warm day a table on the [...]

What’s happening in sport …

Today I am going to provide links to three sports articles of potential interest spotted as I trawled the UK’s national newspapers overnight: We have featured one of rugby’s – and indeed all contact sports’ – key ‘health & welfare’ issues, i.e. head [...]

No frills, no fun

There are few things in life I enjoy less than travelling on a budget airline. From booking to getting the boarding passes to travel, the whole process is one where I grit my teeth and bear it. Take yesterday, for example, when I was travelling from Nice to London Gatwick on easyJet. Neither Polly [...]

A new kid on the block next season

In the context of rugby union’s rapidly-approaching end of the Premiership year – even though the final-knockings of the disaster that has been London Irish’s unfortunate season back in the top flight have yet to take place – let us today congratulate Bristol Rugby on its winning of the [...]
