“Secret of the Gods”

Some people may not like the taste.

Apart from beer and wine the only other liquid that is consumed in large quantities in my household is olive oil. I love everything about olive oil - the gnarled trunks of the trees, the colour of the leaves and the fruit, the smooth texture and the taste. It is a very important substance in our...

“THE OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST”

published 27/08/2007

A True Professional.....

.....That You'd Be Needing One In The First Place.

Having recently published a new "from the Sharp End" cafe review, spurred on by a friend here on Ciao, I have taken the opportunity to refresh this rather older one from the summer of 2007, the time of the workplace smoking ban - since when, quite literally, the atmosphere in our workplace at...

There are no advantages to being fat

OBESITY After reading some wonderful reviews on this subject, starting with Hisheyness's wonderful 'Confessions of a Recovering Fat Man', and after promising totalserenity after reading her wonderful 'WORDS 'ARE' WEAPONS', I have finally plucked up enough courage to write my own review on my...

“O is for the Olympics!”

published 04/03/2010

Gold for AMy!

Death to the poor luge chap

Winter sports, of course, are purely the chance for middle-class types to slip and slide their way around Europe, and not in half-term, Great Britain not exactly a winter sports hub, bagging just 26 medals in 55 years in the Winter Olympics. Some say the Games are for those posh kids not fit or...

People don't look beyond MTV or Radio 1

-----Music: My Obsession----- After reading eddybennet's review on this and reading he had a lot of artists mentioned that I loved as well (such as Rick "GOD" Wakeman), and decided I wanted to join in. I have done a lot of these review things lately, but I think they're great fun, and they give...

Life can be a struggle

Do you ever check that you have locked the door properly after closing it? The answer for most at some point is yes, which I am sure that you will agree is a fairly normal thing to do. How about going to sleep at night switching off appliances and removing plugs not as commonplace as it used to...

A lot of people suffer with it.

“of mice and men”

published 23/05/2005

really good read, and very memorable

there is not any

Of mice and men is written by the author John Steinbeck. He has also written the Grapes of wrath and east of Eden. The book itself is quite small with only 113 pages, so it makes it quite an easy read and can be read in a short space of time. It starts off a few miles away from a place called...

In the last few months of his life, he lived the very existence that he had feared virtually all his life. Broke, down trodden and almost destitute, the end of a the greatest living Victorian playwright, poet and thinker ever to tread the evil Earth should have been one of dignity and of superior...

“Olympic Observations”

published 25/08/2004

Mesmerising fortnight of sport

Some people don't know how lucky they are

I said in my last review that my 50th would be a bit special. By that I meant it would be a temporary change of direction, away from 80's lyrics, James Brown CDs and comedy turns. This past fortnight of Olympic action has stirred unprecedented emotions in me and stimulated my mind with thoughts...
